Junior High School students embarked on a journey of experiential learning and immersed themselves in the world of invisible cities. Inspired by Italo Calvino’s captivating novel, Le città invisibili,” students worked together to interpret maps of cities throughout the regions of Italy. Their multifaceted projects culminated in a captivating display to showcase their artistic, linguistic and analytical skills.
The collaborative project was spearheaded by the Center of Italian Studies at Stony Brook University, the American Association of Teachers of Italian (Long Island Chapter), the Consulate General of Italy, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Italy and Bibliolibrò. Bringing together these entities for this project helped students foster a shared love of Italian language and culture.
