Action 2: Organization of a residential seminar
In the spring of 2012 a dual residential seminar was promoted for 50 headmasters and teachers, for a full week, intended to illustrate and spread the knowledge, through direct experiences, of the UNESCO Site property, its cultural value and the teaching instruments and the fruition available on the territory.
Action 3: Planning and printing teaching material on rock art specifically intended for Primary School children
In these latest years various publications have been made on the topic of rock art, but the field was still lacking a publication with teaching material specifically addressed to Primary School children, who are do date the main visitors of the territory’s rock art parks. After the organization of a workshop, Mantua’s CORRAINI publisher put together a series of three books titled: Rocks; Figures; The Archaeologist.
