The project envisages that, throughout the academic years, the children will work in the locations of Pompeii, where they will discover an extensive sample of the ancient world that they will experience not as spectators but as actual participants. Domestic and civil life, art, architecture, functions and roles in the ancient world will all become part of the lived experience of the students who seek to develop a passion for cultural heritage.
But what better place is there for life to enter the scene than in the theatre?
A place rich in intrinsic didactic power, and a means by which man and society may be studied, where through resourcefulness and courage, the truth of life unfolds.
At the end of the educational course, an event will be staged in the Large Theatre of Pompeii, performed by young actors assisted by artists and internationally renowned professionals from the world of theatre.
To help these young people understand that everything comes from knowledge, the project seeks to sow and leave a mark on their future: the understanding and study of the past can change one’s vision of reality, beginning with the places in which we live, but their valorisation represents an opportunity for those who experience such places on a daily basis.
