Interventions carried out during the health emergency, from school closures to the return to the classroom.

Fondazione Agnelli – often in collaboration with other partners – strives to truly help schools and the national and local community. For this reason, we have dedicated resources to new projects aimed, first and foremost, at supporting students in the most difficult situations and at making it possible for schools to reopen safely. We also played an active role in the public debate, contributing analyses and suggestions via traditional media and social networks.


  • Oltre Le Distanze

Ideas and good practices to ensure students with disabilities were not “left behind” during lockdown. 9 webinars, 79 workshops, 45,000 teachers. With Gedi, Google and 3 universities (UniBZ, UniTN and Lumsa).


  • Arcipelago Educativo

12 weeks of summer activities, online and in person, to support learning and boost motivation in vulnerable students. With Save the Children, 16 “islands” in 6 cities engaged 450 boys and girls.


  • Spazio alla Scuola

An online, free platform to help school principals optimise spaces and plan entrance flows, to prepare for a safe return to the classroom. With PoliMi and UniTo.


  • Fare Spazio

A tool to pinpoint and adapt new spaces in schools. With PoliTo’s FULL, the analysis of 3,200 buildings led to 14 projects and 7 low-cost, “light construction” solutions.


  • Resto a Scuola

Support to remote learning during the first phase of the emergency. With the Specchio dei Tempi Foundation and La Stampa, lessons were made available via to students and groups of students from Piedmontese schools.
