Why the Torneo was a success!!!!

The torneo was a real success because students and teachers of the partecipating schools worked on pizza , a type of food that everybody likes and should you think some day of opening up a pizzeria be sure that you could make good earnings wherever you are. The collaboration of the members of the Pizzerie Italiane and Scuola di Pizza has been a very fruitful and precious one being they professional people who train pizzamen. The Stage- Torneo was a highly professional time for all people involved in it since the students got precious information on the ingredients to use, the right equipment you should have and the skills you should have acquired when you are going to make pizza. The involvemnent of the territory has been another winning card of our Torneo since pizzerias, public bodies (Municipality of Trebisacce, Comunità Montana) Consorzio delle Clementine IGP della Calabria and even a company dealing in iron The Eiffel building s.r.l. agreed to sponsor the Torneo.
The Pizza Stage by the local pizzerias that opened up their place and were at the disposal of the members of the Pizzerie Italiane and Scuola di Pizza, the friendly atmosphere created among students and teachers, the touring of the territory to discover uncontaminated places with people that still wait up in the mountains for visitors to come and get the chance to ask questions and start to communicate with a coffe at a bar, well, all what was planned by the program or impossible to plan like human being relatioships started among all the people involved in this event made of this Stage - Torneo a time to cherish for all of us!!

Torneo & music!


Hi guys, I'm Francesco, your Italian friend that played the consolle dj, at the gala dinner on 14/03/08 at the Miramare Palace Hotel… What was that prize giving cerimony like? I liked it very much. Since you left us everything is different, we missed your smile, your affection, your presence here with us… I hope to meet you soon again, I would like so much to spend other days like that evening to know each other better and spend some more time together … I forgot the name of the Hungarian friend that danced that night. It was amazing to see him dancing the folk dance of his country. You are very good and it was the first time I saw a typical folk dance from another country, from Hungary.Congratulations for what you did.I would like to hear from you. Francesco

The Torneo from my point of view!

The Multiethnic Etwinning concretized in March on the occasion of the Stage- Torneo planned in the etwinning project "The Pizza Business Across Europe". It's amazing the enthusiasm each of us showed by the desire to communicate that every day grew more and more and that from the linguistic point of view, it allowed us to work on our linguistic competence and that at the same time improved it. We were able to make comparisons and exchange ideas about the Stage activities and also about ourselves. From the very first day our European friends started to learn, thanks to the precious collaboration, availability and patience of the members of the Italian Association of Pizzerie Italiane e Scuola di Pizza, showing students and teachers and pizzeria owners step by step how pizza should be made, being always ready to solve any problems with the making and handling of the pizza dough. It's particularly remarkable the effords made by our friends from Romania, Latvia, Portugal and Hungaria in learning how to make a good pizza compared to what we the Italian students did since we are already acquainted with making pizza being it for the most of us a part time job in the pizzerias of the area and we wanted to give room to their creativity.
From this experience true friendships were born and that are getting stronger with daily contact on MSN with our friends from Portugal and Hungary. But that doesn't prevent me and my friends from starting communicating with those friends who were unable to come to the torneo.
I would like to meet on the blog or MSN the Russian, The Bulgarian, The Portuguese students from Aveiro who were not here.
This is an invitation for you to collaborate to the blog so to know something more about yourselves and about your school and the works you are carrying out . I hope to see you again . A hug for all of you, Carmen from Rocca Imperiale.
Here is a photo of the castle of my town that you couldn't see for the lack of time... :)
