The broadcaster “Radio Dimensione Musica” based in Silla gave considerable coverage to Metalcastello and the "Saranno virtuosi" event, organised in collaboration with the DiRE press agency and dedicated to local middle school students.

Here is the text and audio of the report, edited by Alessia Ricci.

Scutigliani: "With young people like this, the future is bright".

For the fifth year running, in collaboration with the DiRE press agency, Metalcastello has organised the "Saranno virtuosi" event at the Palasport of Lizzano in Belvedere: an event dedicated to middle school pupils in the Alto Reno area. Almost 150 boys and girls took part in the final act of a project that began last autumn with a series of meetings in the various classes of the schools of Porretta Terme, Gaggio Montano, Castel di Casio, Castel d'Aiano and Lizzano in Belvedere, culminating in the prize-winning ceremony of a competition for which 29 projects were submitted.

The youngsters were asked to create a project starting from a gear, with ten days to develop it. In the last few days, at Lizzano in Belvedere, the winners were rewarded with important prizes ranging from 200 to 500 euros.

Stefano Scutigliani, Chief Executive Officer of Metalcastello, had this to say: "Our territory has excellent potential, which must be cultivated and allowed to express itself. Kids teach us to see the world with new eyes, with a passion that adults have often lost along the way. Today they have presented projects that are full of imagination and, above all, projects that are useful". He then closed by saying "We try to nurture technical culture in schools and the importance of values such as collaboration, discussion and technical knowledge. We also try to dispel the clichés linked to factory work, which is no longer smoke and assembly lines, but automation, robotics and hi-tech, requiring transversal skills and creativity".
