A week of educational workshops on road safety and sustainable mobility for primary and secondary schools with the Traffic Police at WOW Spazio Fumetto
People become pedestrians, cyclists, or motorcyclists at an early age, which means it is essential for them to know the rules of road safety. This is one of the messages that the Pirelli Foundation Educational programme has for years been committed to getting across in its educational courses for schools. A number of activities for audiences of all ages have been organised for the National Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims on Sunday 17 November, in collaboration with the Traffic Police and WOW Spazio Fumetto. From Monday 11 to Friday 15 November, educational courses will be put on for primary and secondary schools. They will be held by Traffic Police officers together with the educators of Pirelli Foundation Educational and WOW Spazio Fumetto. With a theoretical introduction, and with videos and personal testimony from the officers, the students will learn about the dangers and the rules of the road before putting the knowledge they have acquired into practice in a creative workshop. In particular, the primary school children will help create models of an ideal smart city, which will be safe for pedestrians and attentive to the young. Lower and upper secondary school students, on the other hand, will concentrate on the use of two- and four-wheeled vehicles, and they will examine the issue of distraction while driving, creating comic strips based on real events. On Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 November, there will be meetings and interactive activities for children and adults to go over the rules of road safety.
An exhibition at WOW Spazio Fumetto with pictures and audio-visuals from the Historical Archive of the Pirelli Foundation will examine the theme of safety through the most famous advertising campaigns in the history of Pirelli’s visual communication.
