Interventions carried out in the period of the health emergency, from the closure of the schools to the return to the classroom.

The Agnelli Foundation – often collaborating with other partners – has tried to give concrete help to schools and to the national and local community. We have dedicated resources to new projects aimed, first and foremost, at students in most difficult situations and a safe school reopening. We were also present in the public dialogue with analyses and suggestions on media and social networks.
