The project TRACCE DI MEMORIA – TRAME (2020-1-IT02-KA201-079794), co- funded by the ERASMUS+ programme of the European Commission aims to promote the educational value of cultural heritage as nowadays widely recognized at societal, scientific and institutional level. The dynamic relationship between identity and diversity and how cultures evolve because of absorbing elements from other cultures are at the core of this project, allowing secondary school students to discover and understand the value of cultural diversity through the legacy left by ancient populations living in the same territories and to learn the importance of cultural “contamination” as a way to enrich and shape local and territorial identities.
The TRAME consortium is characterized by a transversal nature, involving different types of organisations from five different countries. TRAME is led by Parco archeologico del Colosseo (IT) and among partners are: Liceo Classico statale Pilo Albertelli (IT), Institute of Archaeology (RS), School of Design (RS), KÖME – Association of Cultural Heritage Managers (HU), Pécsi hajnóczy józsef kollégium (HU), Çatalca Directorate of National Education (TU) and University of Warsaw (PL).
TRAME involves target groups of high school teachers, Heritage managers and High school pupils.
TRAME objectives are:
- To promote the social and educational value of cultural heritage and its contribution to social inclusion and the construction of a European citizenship based on the value of cultural diversity as the legacy of local identities and ancient migrations.
- To create and develop an innovative educational methodology addressed to high school pupils, aimed to promote the active involvement of the pupils in the construction of paths of discovery and interpretation of cultural heritage under the thread of ancient migration flows.
- To promote the development of key competences and skills among pupils, such as in particular the spirit of initiative and communication in foreign languages, social and civic skills, awareness and cultural expression.
- To strengthen the link between the management of archaeological sites and the local communities.
The main TRAME result is the TRAME Manual for teachers and educators, containing the description of the educational methodology targeted to high school pupils and developed by partners throughout the project. Pilot courses to test and validate the educational methodology will be run by the staff of partner organisations in Italy, Hungary, Serbia, Poland and Turkey.
