All this thanks to Ortilio, mascot character of the route, bearer and supporter of these important values ​​for a healthy and sustainable growth.

The project, which involved 75 classes of primary schools in the municipalities of Alfonsine and Ravenna, provided for a series of carefully designed educational interventions based on the age of the students.
