The team had students from two different countries and social background.
The Italian team comprising of Alessia M and Cornelia P from
Palombara Sabina, Italy concentrated on the Italian view of addressing the topic.
The Indian team comprising of Sumita S, Anurekha D and Deepita R from Kendriya Vidyalaya NFR Maligaon, worked on the Indian aspect for addressing the topic.
From the day one the teams divided their areas to work on the project.
The project was broken into fragments by assigning pages for a particular activity. The first few pages was kept for the Italian team and the remaining few were assigned for the Indian students. However the last few pages saw a mixture of ideas incorporated in a particular page beyond geographical borders.
Working on the narrative aspect was shared by all the members.
Creating videos and selecting images were also taken care by the entire team.
We were fortunate to get some original images from our coaches which were used to highlight our narration. Thanks to our coaches.
As our time zones were different we worked during the day and also interacted with our friends at Palombara through messages and emails for deciding on the next steps.
The socio-cultural differences between the Indian and Italian teams have completed and enriched the knowledge of some geographic and historic aspects of the two countries, India and Italy, stimulating curiosity and adding to the members students of the two teams a real motivating factor to study with more passion and pleasure.
The Multi-cultural differences has added a flavor of ecstasy in the thought process of the students. Conceptualization at the ground level often played a big role in collection of materials.

The Indian Team with Anurekha D, Sumita S and Deepita R shared the work amongst themselves.
