On the same topic, students visited the San Lorenzo Maggiore excavations and some other cultural places of interest.

 

Students visited one of the main Charity centers in Napoli the “Pio Montedella Misericordia” which is located in a beautiful and ancient building hosting a masterpiece painting by Caravaggio. The theme of the visit was “We encourage the weakest”: the responsibility of the workshop explained how Pio Monte Della Misericordia helps needy children from schools. Questions prepared by students, which were submitted to some of the Charity personnel, were very interesting and they sparkled several other questions and further discussions.  Students were requested to write articles about their feelings on the experience lived during the Erasmus meeting, these writings will be then published in the Ristori school newspaper titled “Ristoriamoci”, the mobility meeting ended with a Closing Ceremony.
