First final event for Coding Girls in Torino at the “Museo del Risparmio.”

Yesterday, May 16, the Museo del Risparmio hosted the first final event of the third edition of Project Coding Girls in Turin, promoted with the Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo. Lower secondary school students in the province of Turin who participated in lab training sessions competed to conceive and develop a digital product with the use of Scratch software. The teams presenting the best projects were called to illustrate their work to a jury of experts. The stories developed topics that are viewed as particularly urgent by the students, such as pet abandonment, bullying, and gender violence that were the object of stimulating debates during the training sessions.

Participants included Paola Laiolo, a collaborator of Giovanna Paladino, Director and Curator of the “Museo del Risparmio,” Group Senior Director, Intesa Sanpaolo, and Paola Sabbione, Culture Programme Manager for the Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo. The awards were presented by Councillor Carlotta Salerno (Education, School Buildings, Youth, Suburbs, and Urban Regeneration). After the presentations by the 14 groups, while the jury selected the winners, the students participated in a fun activity held by  Christian Pulieri.

Selected Projects 

  • Best ProjectTeam 10 - IC Aldo Moro in Bruino, composed by Emanuele Di Nunno and Edoardo Girotto, with a project on the melting of glaciers 
  • Most Creative ProjectTeam 6 - IC Alberti-Salgari in Turin, composed by Davide Perencin, Meryam Rahal, and Alessia Talamoni, with a project on Sustainable Development Goal N. 14 "Underwater Life" from the Agenda 2030 
  • Most Attractive Project: Team 11 - IC Aldo Moro in Bruino, composed by Noemi Rapolla, with a project entitled "Marina’s Special Meeting" to raise awareness on the respect of sea life. 


Today also marks the end of the course involving upper secondary schools at the Incubator of the Turin Polytechnic for Innovative Start-ups (I3P). The course featured 125 sessions for 15 schools with students working on the conception and development of a digital product using Wordpress and Altervista. During the course of the day, the teams with the most innovative projects competed in a hackathon working on the website or blog created during their training sessions. The teams had to imagine the promotional launch of a website with digital (with posts on social media) and analogue tools (during a period of imagined social media censorship) with advertising on billboards, newspapers, scripts for ads and local or school radio programmes.

The works were introduced by Paola MogliottiI3P Director, while Paola Sabbione, Culture Programme Manager for the Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo, presented the awards.
