·         Which is an important memory FOR YOU?

·         Which are the memories that are commemorated in the memorials that surround you - in your town?

·         Which memories - or questions - are worth being commemorated in the future?

·         We had a two years COMENIUS project about these matters.

·         We had two wonderful years of presenting, of sharing, of learning from each other, of travelling and of making friends all over EUROPE.

·         With Alesund, Norway, Cork, Ireland, Oldenburg, Germany, Périgueux, France, Ghivizzano, Italy

·         In year 1 we made a 70 pages book, consisting of 5chapters: one per school.

·         In year 2 we made a 40 minutes film, consisting of 5 short films, plus opening credits and end credits.
