Schools on cemeteries

Students at the Milan Monumental CemeteryThe Association Amici del Monumentale of Milan has been working with schools since 2016. Over 350 students mainly from high-schools, but also from lower and middle schools, as well as their teachers, have been taken around the Milan Monumental Cemetery. They come from art, language and socio-pedagogical schools in which focus on subjects such as art, history and culture is paramount.

Lower schools also received a peculiar attention: besides organizing walks for them at the cemetery to observe monuments and explain their historical, artistic and religious meaning, a booklet including photographs and explanations of the works of art taken into account was subsequently published under the aegis of Milan’s City Council Presidency. 

With the regard to the so-called learning and working scheme in high-schools, training programmes of several months were carried out ending in a final test.
