In the afternoon, there was a trip to the Trabocchi Coast, with a stopover at The Abbey of San Giovanni in Venere and at Trabocco Punta Tufano, where the group was welcomed by the owner, who provided the group with information and curiosity about these unique “fishing machine”.
The magnificent 11th century Abbey of San Giovanni in Venere is located in Fossacesia, just outside the town centre, on a promontory overlooking the Adriatic Sea where you can take a stunning view of Abruzzo. The architecture combines elements of Romanesque and Gothic and it is a classic of the first ‘Cistercense’ style.
Originally the site was an ancient pagan temple dedicated to Venere, but on the VI century, two Abruzzesi monks coming from Montecassino, converted the place into an Abbey. The monks initially built a small abbey on the ruins of the Roman temple and dedicated it to San Giovanni or Saint John.
The Trabocchi coast stretches from Ortona to Vasto. A Trabocco is a wooden fishing hut that sits in the Adriatic Sea connected to the land by peer, which looks very precarious.. Nowadays there are Trabocchi that offer the opportunity to eat freshly caught fish there, in the stilt hut. A large fishing net is lowered from the Trabocco down to the sea, it is left in the sea water for half an hour or an hour. When the fisherman lifts up the net there he finds his catch.

 

 

 

 

 

During the LLTA , coordinators had 3 meetings to discuss current issues and make an action plan for the following months, prior to LTTA3, but also regarding the second year of project.
The coordinators analysed the application form and identified objectives that have been met so far, as well as things that still haven't been done. Therefore, the coordinator proposed the following actions:
For the next period:
- each partner will finalise the documentation for the end of year 1 - reports, assessment forms, uploading information and proofs on the project website. Each host partner is responsible for the uploading of the contents of the mobility they hosted.
- dissemination of the project activities and results should occur after every meeting and should cover as large and diverse an audience as possible.
- each partner has to have a dissemination folder which contains all the proofs of the dissemination events: links, print screens, photos, lists of participants and signatures.
- the FB page should have more frequent posts - the responsibility for that belongs to Poland.
- the discussion of the Action plan forwarded by the coordinator (see the document attached).
- the partners will make the selection of participants for LTTA3 and send the names to the Lithuanian partner by 15 June.
- in Lithuania, each partner will bring two films, one made from an already existing script (the second one brought to Italy) and a film about their school/city, illustrating a different social problem.


For Year 2:
1. Setting up film clubs in every school - planning the topics, the frequency of meetings, the persons involved. The clubs should be initiated in the following academic year. All the students who participated in the previous mobilities will be part of the club.
2. The brochure proposed in the application form, regarding good practices for starting a film club will include information obtained through the film club implementation. The brochure will include the guidelines for starting and implementing school-based film clubs, a list of NGOs/associations that might help students in this area, international short film festivals. Work on it will start in the second half of Year two.
