Abstract

La Gazzetta Olimpica – the newspaper of the school and the neighbourhood’s project – was born to support the editorial board of the newspaper La Gazzetta Olimpica made by the teachers and pupils of the ‘Villaggio Olimpico’ primary school in Rome during COVID-19 lockdown. The observation of the educational activities (through digital platforms), the interviews and the analysis of children’s laboratory products were the principal tools that we used to evaluate children’s ability to represent reality and translate it into communication products. Compared to previous years school projects, the production of the actual copy of Gazzetta Olimpica suffered from a lower possibility of social interaction within the community. However, the school paper has offered a privileged perspective (that of the children) to reflect on how the global health emergency has changed our interactions, starting from the educational context par excellence – the ‘primary school’.
