Students taking part in the project are working in groups in some European countries (e.g. Greece, Germany, Romania, France…). They have to introduce themselves to the others, describing their family, their school environment and the educational system in their country, and presenting their city and focusing on the neo-classical elements, comparing the possible mutual influences, seeking their common historical, cultural, social past.
Students in their countries surf on the WWW and look for material concerning the above subjects. They make crossword puzzles, riddles and diagrams trying to communicate and explain the similarities and the differences of their cities in the 19th century. They comment and publish the results of their navigation and their study via blogs, power-point presentations and web pages.
