13“ETNA VULCANO DELLA PACE”: INIZIATIVA DEGLI ALUNNI DELL’ISTITUTO FONTANAROSSAI ragazzi dell’istituto “Fontanarossa” hanno lanciato un messaggio di amore esperanza. “E se scoppiasse la pace? ”. Simbolo di questa iniziativa è l’Etna,patrimonio dell’umanità e, in questa occasione, patrimonio di tutti coloro chesognano un mondo senza conflitti e divisioni. Un progetto interculturale che vede isette plessi dell’istituto comprensivo “Fontanarossa” in prima linea per un’iniziativache presto sarà estesa anche nelle altre scuole della provincia etnea e non solo.«Tutto è cominciato con un corso di formazione di Giovanni Pampagnini dell’Asp -afferma la dirigente Concetta Tumminia - Partire dalla Geostoria per compiere unpercorso che ha riguardato lo sviluppo di una preghiera collettiva per la pace. Intutto il mondo si compiono orrori assurdi contro l’umanità. Per questo noi vogliamocominciare da Librino, zona di frontiera, dove prendere la strada sbagliata è moltosemplice».La scuola di Fontanarossa diventa così il motore di un messaggio universale. Il cuoredi un territorio che vuole cambiare e trasformare l’Etna in un vulcano della pace.Una prospettiva che presto sarà ben visibile attraverso dei cartelloni che verrannoaffissi in tutto il quartiere. Un “benvenuto” per accogliere degnamente queivisitatori che sbarcheranno all’aeroporto.Tuesday, 30th of September, Daily Newspaper LA SICILIA
