The paper demonstrate that “educating and telling” can be reinterpreted as “educating to telling”. With an inusual storyteller’s point of view, that of children of the Gualdo school we’ll discover the importance of the memory-drawing and of the photography to think about the sense of loss after a catastrophic event as an earthquake and to tell the meaning of places—that we name “genius loci”—throughout perceptions, memories, emotions that only children have. They were engaged in an assisted laboratory aim to identifying surrounding and community values, according to the European Landscape Convention. Encouraging the understanding of “genius loci” guarantees a responsible projection towards the future, starting from your own context, where historical memories are protect.
