EUStudy - European Citizenship Education in Theory and Practice

The project aims at cross-fertilizing the EU studies and the Education research fields through academic conferences and a research activity aimed at producing sound scientific outputs and publications that can sustain evidence-based policy making and multi-layered methodological approaches to citizenship education.

EUAct - Active Learning for an active EU citizenship
EUact took stock of three EU educational best practices awarded public promotion by the Commission and crossbred them with distance learning technologies in a working program whose activities succeeded in involving Italian secondary students and teachers, Cinema Theatres and cultural associations from 50% regional territories of the country, beside enhancing the EU studies orientation of university students and academic staff from different Faculties at eCampus (Law, Humanities, Psychology, Economy and even some scholars from the Faculty of Engineering). The main series of decentralized events have been the Cinema European Awareness Days featuring the filmed version of "Europe: what a Passion! The tale of a stormy love affair" - a thrilling music recital show on EU history - followed by an innovative and much appreciated Q&A session abolishing the distance between experts and participants by way of an interactive online survey that participants could access directly from their smartphones and that greatly helped to stir participative debates.

EUMAN - Arts and humanities for an inclusive EU
EUMAN stimulates EU civic education in a significant secondary school population with no EU specific coverage and the wherewithal to become a multiplier of pro-EU communication for the public opinion at all levels: teachers and students of Licei Artistico, Musicale and Coreutico in Italy (125.000 people following official statistics), devoted to audio-visual and performing arts. Two groups of activities run parallel in the program:
1. Experimentation and dissemination through detailed didactic package of an innovative educational program drawing on "Europe: what a Passion!" and the European Awareness Days to transform it into a fully participatory event organized by students
2.Decentralised conferences open to civil society in all 20 Italian regional chief-lieus through official networks of targeted schools that will enhance dissemination, knowledge on the migration "crisis" and will launch a national creative contest.
A final event took place in Milan, Teatro degli Arcimboldi, with the supporto of the Comune di Milano.

EUNews - How Europe is described?
EUNEWS was planned to stimulate EU civic education not only in a significant secondary school population with no EU specific coverage but also to become a multiplier of pro-EU communication for the public opinion at all levels: the idea of the project in fact stems from the need to build a European civic consciousness and a pro-EU communication for the public opinion in general, implementing the creation of a European public sphere. To do so, EUNews stirred a TV partnership with the Tuscany regional broadcasting company Granducato TV, that from December 2017 to May 2018 broadcasted a weekly “EUNews” TV program to discuss the main European issues and the EU agenda of the week with CesUE experts, involving high schools' students and the TV viewers into a truly supranational perspective on current affairs that can provide them with new effective tools to understand what’s going on today in Europe multi-level system of government. Seminars for students and training for teachers went parallel to the TV programme, while an European Awareness Day gathered more than 500 people in a public theatre as the project final event.

MoreEU - More Europe to overcome the Crisis
Euroskepticism rises, using false arguments. Academic knowledge on the EU should be used in the public debate, but universities do not reach out and EU teaching in high school is limited. MoreEU aims at filling this gap, targeting the 5 Euro-Plus capitals where the EU and the € are under euroskeptics attack.
The activities revolve around the question "What Europe is needed and how to get it?". Each capital hosted a European Awareness Day featuring "Europe: what a Passion!" in the relevant language, an academic international conference and a seminar for local NGOs and a stakeholders' meeting for European communication.
Period: 2015-2017

EUCivic - Empowering European Citizens through European Civic Education
EUCivic aimed at deepening and widening the reflection on democracy and European civic education (ECE), disseminating at national level the ECE educational and research work promoted by SSSUP in the past few years, successfully involving thousands of beneficiaries (mainly students, teachers, researchers and civil society associations) in Tuscany.
EUCivic transferred the European Awareness Days format, featuring "Europa: che Passione! Storia di un amore tormentato", to other Italian regions (events in Verona and Cagliari, beside a very big event in Florence, Teatro dell'Opera, filmed by RAI Cultura and broadcasted on RAI 5 and RAI Scuola), using their extended format including also an afternoon seminar for teachers and a debate with civil society representatives. EUCivic also featured two webinar series for school teachers.

European Awareness Days 
The event format featuring an original theatrical work followed by a specifically designed educational activity (lecture, direct and informal debate with the audience etc.) was first tested by Daniela Martinelli and Francesco Pigozzo in 2008-2011 with the birth of the theatrical pièce "Come Va il Mondo?" and the subsequent conception of the music recital show "Europa: che Passione". But it was inside the Sant'Anna School projects that this format took its name of "European Awareness Day": this was also the name given to three big events in Naples (Città della Scienza), Rome (Teatro Argentina) and Milan (Teatro dal Verme) supported by the main national and European institutions managing in Italy the European Communication in 2013-4. These events were also the occasion to found a spin-off society (CesUE) to further enhance research results and educational expertises acquired through the Learning EU@School projects at the Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies.

EUWay - The European way out of crisis
EUWay has been the second Learning EU@School project by the Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies, directly linked to EUGlobal. In this new working programme, a second tour of Tuscany cities featured this time the theatrical pièce "Come Va il Mondo?", dealing with the cultural context and the political vision behind both the birth of the European integration process and today need for revitalizing it - in the specific perspective of one of its main but controversial founders, Altiero Spinelli. EUWay also provided Tuscany schools with direct classroom activities and a multimedia didactic unit about the financial crisis and its specific European (and economic, social, institutional, political) dimension.

EUGlobal - The EU as a project and a resource to govern globalization
Winning the first ever "Learning EU@School" call for applications in 2011, EUGlobal kicked-off the European Civic Education initiatives at Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies through a Jean Monnet project tailored to the Tuscany school system and originally grounded on the music recital show "Europa: che Passione! Storia di un amore tormentato" written and represented by Daniela Martinelli and Francesco Pigozzo (Daniela Martinelli being also the director). Beside a theatrical tour that reached prestigious rooms and big audiences in each of the ten chief-lieus of the region (the event in Florence took place at the Teatro Verdi and was filmed and broadcasted by the regional TV chain Telegranducato), EUGlobal also provided Tuscany teachers with a training seminar and a written course on EU matters for secondary school students (ECE Module).
