Segni and school

The school world is an important interlocutor for the Segni d’infanzia association. In this section you can find the services and opportunities made available to teachers and students.

Offering, Consulting and Co-Design

Theatre is a transversal pedagogical tool, capable of affecting the growth of the person in his or her cognitive and emotional spheres. It encourages children, boys and girls to re-connect with their own emotional side, helps them recognise the other and enter into empathic communication with the other, and is a form of non-formal learning recognised to all intents and purposes by the MIUR as an activity to be included in the educational offer and in the disciplinary teaching plan.

Every year, the Segni d’infanzia association offers teachers and classes of all levels, numerous educational and training proposals planned as part of SEGNI New Generations Festival, but not only.

The association is available throughout the year, at the request of schools or individual teachers, to devise specific activities and projects in line with the curricular themes to be addressed. It is also possible to ask schools for one of the proposals of shows produced by the association.

In addition, the association is available to participate in national and international calls for proposals as a partner, putting its skills and many years of experience in project writing at the service of the school.

The Festival as a cultural trip

Pre-pandemic, the festival has always been an opportunity for an unprecedented trip to Mantua, a Unesco World Heritage Site, combining the viewing of theatrical performances and art workshops with a visit to the places of art, many of which are exceptional locations for the scheduled events. An all-round cultural experience where you can meet artists from all over the world and foreign students.

In compliance with the covid-19 prevention provisions, the Festival’s Schools Office is available to help classes of all levels, near and far, organise one or more days at SEGNI, creating ad hoc packages for participation in several events and discovery of the city.

Segni in onda for the schools

In 2020, the digital platform SEGNI IN ONDA was born, which also offers schools an augmented offer accessible and visible at any time directly in the classroom on the interactive whiteboard. The platform, created with the collaboration of evolutionary age experts, hosts various contents: theatre shows, podcasts, interviews with experts and artists, workshops, video readings, web series where artistic and digital languages are experimented to create innovative proposals, offer reading tools and a complementary and in-depth experience to the live one.

Discover in the area dedicated to the school order to which you belong what content is dedicated to the age group of your pupils.

Teacher Pass

If you are a teacher and would like to discover the proposals of the festival by attending it as an “insider” in order to find hints and ideas for your own activity, you can request the PASS DOCENTE by writing to ufficioscuole@segnidinfanzia.org and showing a document certifying your profession as a teacher.

The PASS allows you free access to the festival events subject to availability of places, which can be obtained by calling the box office on +39 0376 752882.

Let's meet at the Festival

The 18th edition of SEGNI New Generations Festival will be held in Mantua from 28 October to 5 November 2023.

As every year, the Artistic Direction of Segni d’infanzia organises training and in-depth meetings with teachers of all grades. For further information contact ufficioscuole@segnidinfanzia.org – +39 0376 752417

The Contest and the Symbol Animal

The festival contest is a process of approaching and involving children and adults that every year involves schools of all levels in the Mantua area and beyond.

For many kindergartens the festival’s symbolic animal, which is different every year, is a tool for tackling the “welcome weeks” through dedicated and themed activities that are inspired by its characteristics and the dedicated bibliography. Sometimes the symbol animal characterises activities throughout the school year, also with the involvement of families, and allows for the exploration of various artistic techniques and languages.

After the Festival

It is possible to ask Segni d’infanzia throughout the school year to design an activity (workshops, readings, etc.) to be carried out in the school by writing to ufficioscuole@segnidinfanzia.org

To keep up to date with activities dedicated to the preschools, sign up for the Special Schools Newsletter by sending an email to ufficioscuole@segnidinfanzia.org and indicating your school grade.

The festival’s contest is a process of approach and involvement of children and adults that every year involves schools of all levels in the Mantua area and beyond.

For many schools, the festival’s symbolic animal, which is different every year, is a cue for dedicated and themed activities inspired by its characteristics and the dedicated bibliography. Sometimes the symbol animal characterises activities for the entire school year, also with the involvement of families, and allows the exploration of various artistic techniques and languages.

After the Festival

It is possible to ask Segni d’infanzia throughout the school year for the conception and realisation of an activity (workshops, readings) directly at school by writing to ufficioscuole@segnidinfanzia.org

In the SU MISURA section you can find some proposals of activities already realised by the association for sponsors and organisations that you can imagine declining and modulating according to your needs and the age of the class group.

The association has also created shows suitable for pre-schools, which can be performed at school, such as

  • LUPUS IN FABULA on emotions, fairy tales and the environment.

Some of the content on the segninonda.org platform remains available throughout the school year and you can also browse through content from previous programmes.

After the Festival

È possibile richiedere a Segni d’infanzia durante tutto l’anno scolastico l’ideazione e realizzazione di un’attività (laboratori, letture) direttamente a scuola scrivendo a ufficioscuole@segnidinfanzia.org

Nella sezione SU MISURA è possibile trovare alcune proposte di attività già realizzate dall’associazione per sponsor ed enti che si può immaginare di declinare e modulare in base alle proprie esigenze e all’età del gruppo classe.

Per sperimentare a scuola la preparazione di un Carnevale sostenibile e a regola d’arte c’è, ad esempio, l’attività della Cicloffina degli animali fantastici ideata per il Nabuzardan.

L’associazione ha creato anche degli spettacoli adatti alle scuole primarie, realizzabili a scuola come

  • AMORE E PSICHE sull’arte e il mito
  • SUPEREUREKA sulla sostenibilità e le energie rinnovabili
  • LUPUS IN FABULA su emozioni, fiabe e ambiente

After the Festival

During the course of the year, the association involves students aged between 15 and 18 and secondary school teachers in activities related to the TEEN Project, a European cooperation project, which aims at the active involvement of adolescents in the theatrical experience and programming in collaboration with teachers and peers from different countries.

The festival’s online schedule on segninonda.org is led by TEEN groups who also collaborate in the production of some contents such as the ANG InRadio – Mantua #EcosistemaCulturaleEuropa podcasts, interviews and special contents, “Pillole di resilienza” and “La Voce di Geppetto”.

To join the TEEN COMMUNITY write to segnidinfanzia@gmail.com

Various contents of the platform dedicated to secondary school students (interviews with authors and artists or online discussion spaces such as the Spunti(ni) critici and the Teen Kitchen Table) remain available after the festival.

For teachers

Training sessions dedicated to teachers are often scheduled within the festival.

The experience itself at the festival, through viewing the performances and frequenting the spaces where artists, operators and spectators meet, is a formative experience that offers numerous stimuli and insights.

AD ARTEM… Cycle of training meetings for educators and teachers

The project E se diventi Farfalla (What if you became a butterfly) is now in its fourth and final year, and it does so by proposing a conference for spring 2023. This is the last stage of a cycle of workshops and meetings – spread between October and March – aimed at educators, educators and teachers of nursery and primary schools in collaboration with artists, authors and authors so that they never stop playing with ideas!

The meetings are free of charge and places are limited.

Booking required by writing to: info@mantovaplayground.it – 331 6161279

For students

For secondary school students, it is possible to activate a school-work alternation pathway to follow all the organisational phases of a cultural and international event such as SEGNI New Generations Festival, working alongside the staff and gaining experience in the field by performing various tasks.

In addition, during the festival the spaces for debate and discussion (Spunti(ni) critici, Teen Kitchen Table) with peers, artists and operators from all over Italy and the world are a real ground for developing critical thinking, interpersonal and communication skills, and for training in English.

All the activities dedicated to young people aged between 15 and 18 within the TEEN Project, a European cooperation project conceived and coordinated by Segni d’infanzia associazione are among the training activities for which training credits can be requested.
