Each partner presents a video or power point showing something about their country and how this is linked to the topic of the project. A musical interlude followed by typical folklore dances, the recital of Sicilian poems and an exhibition of local arts are presented to the guests.
One of our Art teachers, Mr. Scaturro, who has got a specialization degree in the Conservation of Architectural Assets, gave a lecture about how the conservation of historical and architectural sites is carried out, showing it step by step. In the afternoon the students guided the whole group around Partinico, showing some historical monuments and sites.
