Fair Didacta Italy, the most important national trade fair event dedicated to the world of school, university, training and scientific research, after the success of the last edition (which returned to be held in-person from 20 to 22 May, after two years of stop for the pandemic) arrives in Sicily, from 20 to 22 October, in collaboration with the Sicilian Region.
Fair Didacta Italy Sicilian edition, the first spin off event of the national edition, will be hosted in Misterbianco, in the province of Catania, in the spaces of Sicilia Fiera Exhibition Meeting Hub in an area of 12 thousand square meters, where the training rooms and stands of companies operating in the entire school production chain will be set up.
The event is aimed at all levels of education and training: nursery schools, 0-6, primary schools, upper and lower secondary schools, professional institutes, ITSs, universities, scientific research and vocational training institutes, as well as professionals from the world of school, companies and practitioners. All categories of the sector are involved: school managers, teachers, trainers, specialized journalists and the main professional associations as well as local administrators.
The Sicilian edition of Didacta Italy, which will have INDIRE as its scientific partner, will propose a programme of training events of the highest level and, like the national edition, will make use of an organizing committee which will include, among others, the Sicilian Region, Firenze Fiera, the Ministry of Education, the Regional School Office, Sicilian universities and Didacta International.
“Fair Didacta Sicily – declared the president of the Sicilian Region, Nello Musumeci – will be an opportunity for planning and confrontation in support of the school of the future and the innovative training of our teachers. But also the occasion of launching the regional project, as part of the National Schools 4.0 Project. A significant commitment of the Region which, I am sure, will correspond to an equally important participation of public and school sector professionals”.
“We have welcomed the synergy with the Sicilian Region with great enthusiasm because we have always placed ourselves in the perspective of “public service”, by making the format and consolidated know-how of our Fair available to the school community“, stated the president of Firenze Fiera, Lorenzo Becattini. “Organizing this new edition of Fair Didacta Italy alongside the Sicilian Region and all the institutional and sector partners in charge, is a source of satisfaction and pride for us, an additional opportunity that we offer to the Sicilian teaching staff to train and update themselves, and to companies in the sector to participate in a new and important event to do business and promote their activities and products“.
