Hi. My name is Ksenia Forte. Many years, founded by me company Italy For Families (Italia Per Famiglie), is engaged in the organization
events and trips with children on the territory of Italy.

But until this spring, there was no one on our list of projects that was personally more important to me than the one you will read about below.
Many citizens of Ukraine had to flee their native country to save their lives. These are women and children. Forming a friendly collective, acquaintance with the traditions of the country, revealing emotions through art and creativity, are able for a while to give peace of mind and a sense of stability.
My wish is to give a warm home, a friendly hug, and, if necessary, a shoulder for those who need it.

We have prepared this proposal for families and children from Ukraine who are forced to stay in Italy.
You can register for one or more events free of charge.
My personal goal is to ensure that children from Ukraine and Russian children in the game, in creativity, in joint conversation and occupation, erase the boundaries of mistrust, cruelty, senseless slaughter, which adults call the word "war".

I would very much like Russian children or bilingual children to take part in master classes on a paid basis. We cooperate with the best guides and teachers, museums and parks, and we would like to support those people who have expressed a desire to participate in the project. In addition, funds are required for the purchase of materials and the rental of premises. Paying for events is a way to say "you and I", a way to do a little action and help not just by word. In addition, I see great value in the opportunity to spend time with children from mixed or Russian-speaking families who live in Italy with children from Ukraine. We are thus taking a step towards rapprochement among countries that are likely to distance themselves for years to come.
Our Mission is
  • To create comfortable environment for Ukrainian children, integrate them, implement a community for communication
  • To translate the possibility of maintaining friendly relations between Russia and Ukraine by the communication between children from these countries
  • To help Ukrainians, staying in Italy, use their work skills
  • To make for children from Ukraine a creative spaces in Ital
Choose your status in Italy. And the site will take you to the page of free registration for events (for citizens of Ukraine) or to the page of payment (for citizens of other countries).
We offer free master classes, excursions and classes on the territory of Italy for Ukrainian children

Skate lessons with Dmitry Fedorov in Rome
Dmitry Fedorov is a skateboarder with experience, the author of a project on the personalization of skates and the experience of teaching private lessons. Dmitry makes his own skateboards based on his unique collages. " I always use materials that I happen to see in everyday life - these are clippings from newspapers, magazines and brochures."

It is possible to engage in sketching at the amateur level from an early age. In my opinion, at five or six years old, the child is ready to stand on the board and learn to feel it. I think that almost every child likes it. Skating gives freedom and activity».

On April 29, Dmitry will hold a group skate boarding lesson in the park Roman Skate Park Cinetown.

Skateboarding helps to relieve stress and relax. During this class, students focus on their feelings and thoughts.

Ceramic class with Anna Kapyrina in Rome
Anna Kapyrina - is a ceramist and founder of the Anna Kapyrina Ceramic studio - little workshop studio for big experiments. Anna teaches children pottery, modelling and pottery decoration.

"Ceramics is a way of life, a way of thinking. It is an adventure. No other material gives so much scope for imagination, so many ways of working, resources and a deep sense of the creative process as clay. I love watching children getting to know clay, crumpling, cutting, beating, smearing, using different tools. There is no need to rush the child, they are not spoiled, they are learning the properties of the material, its possibilities: texture, plasticity, how the clay reacts to exposure."

For all ages
Class duration 3 hours
Meeting place: Roma (exact meeting place to be specified)
