About the project 
Scientific researches show that creativity is a crucial dimension of learning. In fact, creative thinking is vital, mainly in terms of acquiring knowledge. In a world in constant transformation, youth need to be equipped with several skills to affront any situation and adapt to the world today, develop a satisfactory life and contribute usefully to society.
There are different practices of great effectiveness focused on the creative development. In essence, the young person must be provided with an environment in which he can develop his creative potential, where originality is valued, and where mistakes are understood not as a failure, but as inevitable steps towards learning, always protecting his motivation with a constructive and positive feedback.
