The I.T.E.R project ( Intercultural Travelling European Reality) has as objective to stir up the awareness of a European citizenship in the students and their families through an interdisciplinary and diachronic path that highlights the flows of men , ideas and goods in Europe . The curricular and extracurricular activities that will be realized in multimedia forms, in the language of the project,will build up the movements that the European have had during the centuries , from the Romans to our times, and as the figure of the traveller and the meaning of the travel itself has changed in times. The objective is to examine, through a new and creative approach , the historical stratification that has determined the “European citizen”, and also to consider how he is not the result of European policies of the EU but a historical product . Only observing the flux of movements of men and the nature of their travelling our students will understand as the European have always moved in a wide space, and they will also discover that culture, arts, techniques goods and customs have always travelled with men and are similar even in very distant places. .Discovering common peculiarities ,the students will overcome ethnic stereotypes according to which their culture is better than that of the others and will learn to cooperate with different people. As a result all the people involved ,students, families, teachers, will improve their feeling of European citizenship, their respect of differences, civil responsibility, tolerance, and they will also improve their knowledge of foreign languages and the use of TIC . Interactive maps of Europe will be realized regarding 4 historical macro-subjects: - The Roman Age - The Middle Ages -The Modern Age -The Contemporary Age In every age students will highlight: Who travels Why he travels Where he goes What he takes and what he leaves there. For instance: The Roman Age: -Travels to conquer lands :the Roman Empire was the first example of political and cultural globalization but they also travelled to improve their knowledge; the Roman “Cives” completed his education in Greece; -economical travel (tin from north Europe, corn from Egypt, spices from Asia Minor) -they left : their language , government and infrastructures and took goods and culture. The map will reconstruct these movements and will be furnished with explanation charts. The Middle Ages: -Travels to conquer lands(the Crusades and the Normans for instance) -Travels as pilgrimages ( the European routes of faith) -Economical travels: the merchant that trades all over Europe(Marco Polo), -The intellectual that moves in different countries(the Provençal troubadour, Petrarch , Chaucer etc.), The Modern Age -Travel to conquer land (colonialism), -Economical travel (the new goods from the New World spread in Europe ,how and through which routes? -The birth of the “Grand Tour” The Contemporary Age -The travel as migration (for economical, political and racial reason) -Tourism -European Market -The travel of Culture. Comparing the charts that every nation partner will realize, it will be possible to draw a map of the European nations involved in which it will be easily seen the different kind of exchanges among the countries and it will be possible to read the contributions of every nation to the building of a common European framework that has determined the birth of the European citizen of today.
