On the occasion of world women's day, the Italian not-for-profit organisation ODNs Italia Onlus (organisation developing new types of solidarity), wished to celebrate the female gender through beauty in the purest sens of the word.

 

Under the motto by Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky: "Beauty will save the world,, from 6 pm onwards, the High School stage hosted a series of performances by students, teachers and parents who celebrated women through dance, singing and acting, among other performances.


In addition, the event was a chance to "bring passion to constructing solidarity as new ways of feeling humanity" as the event's poster suggested. A night of music, words, images and stories to highlight the most noble side of being a woman, as the force behind change.


The President Lucía Coia, the Mother Superior and the headmaster, Gianfranco Zazzara, were proud to repeatedly mention the key figure of St Joan of Lestonnac, founder of the Company of Mary Our Lady, a woman with extraordinary charisma and a worthy model nowadays for energy, culture and female dignity.

 

 

The event was a great success with a high turnout, so much so that it was suggested that it should become an annual event. So... we'll see you next year!

 

 

A taster of the artists who performed. The fantastic mothers from Primary class 3B, who closed the event with a version of "Sister Act" radiating beauty and feeling.
