During the Easter holidays, as we know, the boys were back with their families.
In one of those days immediately after Easter, Piero went to see NOTO, a beautiful Sicilian town near Syracuse.
NOTO is truly beautiful and is the capital of the Baroque style, and is also called “stone garden.” The historic center has been declared a UNESCO “World Heritage Site.”
Piero, accompanied by his brother and two friends, wanted to be a simple tourist, but having posted his photo on Instagram, was seen by some students of the school of Tourism. Through word of mouth, they were activated in a very nice positive way, as well as thanks also to their teacher Alessandra Brafa.
But here is all explained well by the same words of Alessandra Brafa.
When I arrived in this class, the III A Tourism of Matteo Raeli of Noto, the girls had no dreams or, at least, they could not translate them. I asked them that in the nine months to follow, from September to June, they would have to make an effort to find one, to bring their talents to the surface.
Today these girls have done more. Known on Instagram of the presence of the singer Il Volo in Noto, they asked me to interview him. They were excited, their eyes were shining, they bounced with enthusiasm asking me to make sure to meet him.
A few minutes later, with the necessary authorizations, we were with him, the tenor of Naro, Piero Barone. He lent himself with kindness and irony. The girls were all excited, and my heart was smiling. After we went to the press office of the City of Noto telling about the scoop they came home full of joy and with an extra motivation to enhance the skills because “Prof, but knows that it is difficult to do an interview? We found nothing clever to ask!”
The real school I think is the one that knows how to alternate theory with practice, which passes from manuals to people, from the tasks of reality to life, that experiments on the field and looks to the future with hope and certainty that if we start from the dream, in the end what you want becomes reality.
Thank you, Piero Barone of IL Volo for courtesy, kindness of manner and elegance of mind.
And here is the article made by the students!
