Organising DIDACTA ITALY Fair in Safety – Fortezza da Basso, October 28-30, 2020


Florence, 12th May 2020 – The fourth edition of DIDACTA ITALY, the most important fair on Italian school innovation, aimed at teachers, school managers, administrative and general service directors, educators, instructors, professionals and the main industry companies, is set to take place at the Fortezza da Basso from 28th to 30th October 2020.

Supported by a team of experts, the staff of Firenze Fiera is working to organise the fair in safety, designing new and larger spaces according to anti-Covid protocols, including temperature scanners and the distribution of protecting equipment upon access, as well as the use of special apps, such as a special “skip-the-line” app, thanks to which visitors will be able to access venues and halls avoiding gatherings for them and exhibitors while visiting the fair.

This edition will be dedicated to Gianni Rodari (Omegna, 23rd October 1920 – Rome, 14th April 1980), the greatest and most loved 20th-century Italian author of children’s books, celebrating the 100th anniversary of his birth with exhibitions and special events.

Firenze Fiera is organizing a special edition with the scientific support of Indire, developingmore innovative formula compared to past editions to give a new sign of confidence, and relying on the benefits of increasingly smart and digitalized didactics. The staff is also implementing all those tools required for schools to kick start safely again in September, and working on the concept of school not being perceived merely as a transmission of content, but also as a way to develop critical conscience, relations, and empathy. The aim is to regain a collective dimension and promote a concerted effort to slowly and progressively return to normal.

Among the key new features of this edition, 0-6 educational paths and training school managers and DSGAs (Administrative Directors).

In terms of the exhibition, special attention will be given to Mechatronics, Robotics and Green areas for an increasingly sustainable school, introducing virtuous educational models of circular economy, thanks also to the active participation of Legambiente.
