EDUCATIONAL PROJECTS ARCHIVE:

The Institute has organized, by himself or under request of the scholar world, a sery of initiatives dedicated to schools:

1. Didactical project "The man, the wood and the forest"
Realized in occasion of the XXVIIth Study Week.

2. Prato, the birth of an identity
A sperimental project for cultural and professional orietering. It has been realized in 1997 in collaboration with F.I.L. (Formazione Industria Lavoro S.p.a.) and the Province of Prato.

3. CD-ROM: "Woman and alimentation in the history and in the culture"
This CD-ROM has been realized by the Ministry of the Public Instruction, general Direction for the professional instruction, in the field of the program "Formation of the formers by means of multimedial packets in self-formation on the production of a male-female", cofinanced by European Social Fund as a formation instrument for teachers of the second degree school.

4. "The life in the house of a medieval merchant"
At the end of the year 2000, a book titled "The life in the house of a medieval merchant". Since the beginning of the project, Andrea Dué, who has realized it, asked the collaboration of the Institute for the of the texts. The cooperation itself has made the volume to build substancially around the pernonnality of Datini and his house in Prato, instead of making reference to a generical image of a medieval merchant.
The Institute has presented the volume to the first degree schools' libraries.
