Trento is ready to host the 91st General Italian Alpine Troops Assembly in May 2018. This meeting is particularly important. In fact, due to its high symbolic level, it has been identified as the reconciliation event. It takes place during the 100° anniversary of the end of the Great War and the annexation of Trento and Trieste to Italy. Besides several commemorative initiatives, there is also the social theatre dimension with La Scelta. The play La Scelta will be performed in 19 theatres in different areas of Trentino and it counts 618 editions in Europe. The stories narrate the tragedy of the former Yugoslavia conflicts that caused bloodshed in the Balkans between 1991 and 1995. The goal of the play is to underline tragedy, poverty, death, and devastation brought by every war.

ATB AND LICEO DA VINCI: DISCOVERING BiH

Two more classes of Liceo Da Vinci in Trento started their path towards the Balkans, more precisely to Bosnia and Herzegovina, where they will take the annual school trip. The initiative is promoted by ATB Onlus and takes place from March 20 to 24 throughout Sarajevo, Srebrenica and Mostar. Similarly to the school trip to Serbia, the aim is to bring the participants closer to the history and the cultures of this European area.

The first meeting was scheduled on January 23. After a brief opening speech by the Director Maurizio Camin, the lesson was led by Davide Sighele, journalist and reporter of Osservatorio Balcani Caucaso e Transeuropa. The topic of the training was the dissolution process of Yugoslavia.

Participants discussed about borders, causes and consequences of the 10-year War in the Balkans. Consideration to the Bosnian demographic context was given, highlighting the complex transformation process the country experienced during and after the conflict in the 90s.
The following lessons foresee the analysis of the capital city Sarajevo, Srebrenica during and after the conflict, and the cooperative relationships between Bosnia and Trentino.

ATB AND LICEO DA VINCI: DISCOVERING SERBIA

On December 19 2017, at the auditorium of Liceo Scientifico Da Vinci in Trento the first training for students departing to Serbia took place. The school trip is supported by ATB Onlus throughout Belgrade, Subotica, Novi Sad and Kragujevac from April 10 to 14.

The aim of the training is to bring students closer to Serbian history and culture, which are too often little known. After the opening speech of ATB Director Maurizio Camin, the lesson was led by Davide Sighele, journalist and reporter of Osservatorio Balcani Caucaso e Transeuropa. The main topic of the training was the dissolution process of Yugoslavia. Participants discussed also about the internal and external borders of the former Yugoslav Republics, the geo-political changes brought by the war in the 90s, and the current status of Serbia that, then and today, is crossed by the migrant routes.
More training meetings will follow: external relations of Serbia and the relationship among the cooperation entities from Serbia and Trentino.
