On World Water Day, Reggio Emilia students present exhibition on historical water systems
One of MULTIPLIERS’ learning projects in the region of Reggio Emilia was the topic of a video published by the news portal Reggionline on the occasion of World Water Day.
The portal interviewed Arturo Bertoldi (Eduiren) and Paola Semeghini (partner school Blaise Pascal) on the Multipliers learning project on clean water and sanitation, which required students to undertake a history research project on the Secchia Channel (Canale di Secchia). Dating back to the Middle Ages, the channel was the first water system in town.
The video shows an exhibition prepared by the students to showcase their work, which involved studying maps of the ancient channel and collecting information on the channel’s path, water uses and different locations.
