The Learning Citizen
Starting from the local
story of Delicata Civerra and her sacrifice as a consequence of
quarrels between two rival groups, we have focused our attention on
the contrasts still existing in our society among different realities
Internet as a mean of communication that has no border and that has

Internet represents a powerfull instrument capable of increasing our
consciousness of being citizens of the World. It gives us the
opportunity of discovering and learning more about different habits,
customs and cultures not cancelling them but only putting them in
to our interviewes, nowadays Internet is making the gap between Europe
and the III World bigger.
it is causing social differences between rich and poor people.
our opinion, European identity
requires the free exchange of persons and ideas and finds its
expression in the common protection of our values.
to Internet, individuals can favour a development of a spirit of

function in the phenomenon of cultural globalization.
Learning citizen”, respectful to other cultures,should partecipate
in the process of European unification using Internet and on-line
