The Italian school year is about to end, and after 3 months of “smart school” or “distance learning” the oldest students finishing the highschool are still waiting to know where and how to take the final exam – called maturità- respecting all the security measures required by the government.

But there is a school in Todi where the “where” is not a trouble! It’s the Ciuffelli Agricultural Institute, located a few metres outside the city wall and the Medieval Porta Romana gate: the school and the student residence are housed in an old building, once a Benedectine monastery named “Montecristo”.

The present headmaster with the help and the support of his smart entourage has recently opened the “green classroom”, a proper classroom but open air! As you can guess, the perfect place to take an exam in total safety!

Soon afterwards, THIS ARTICLE has been published:
