“ETNA VULCANO DELLA PACE”: INIZIATIVA DEGLI ALUNNI DELL’ISTITUTO FONTANAROSSA I ragazzi dell’istituto “Fontanarossa” hanno lanciato un messaggio di amore e speranza. “E se scoppiasse la pace? ”. Simbolo di questa iniziativa è l’Etna, patrimonio dell’umanità e, in questa occasione, patrimonio di tutti coloro che sognano un mondo senza conflitti e divisioni. Un progetto interculturale che vede i sette plessi dell’istituto comprensivo “Fontanarossa” in prima linea per un’iniziativa che 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 un percorso che ha riguardato lo sviluppo di una preghiera collettiva per la pace. In tutto il mondo si compiono orrori assurdi contro l’umanità. Per questo noi vogliamo cominciare da Librino, zona di frontiera, dove prendere la strada sbagliata è molto semplice». La scuola di Fontanarossa diventa così il motore di un messaggio universale. Il cuore di 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 verranno affissi in tutto il quartiere. Un “benvenuto” per accogliere degnamente quei visitatori che sbarcheranno all’aeroporto. Tuesday, 30 th of September, 2014 Daily Newspaper LA SICILIA
