The screening in the original language, intended for representatives of the Italian community in Lille and for students of the Italian Section at the "Montebello" Lyceum, was preceded by introductory speeches by the Headmaster Luigi Vallebona on "The languages ​​of Fenoglio" and by Paolo Modugno dell 'Preview Association on “Fenoglio and the cinema”.

The "Leonardo Da Vinci" State Comprehensive Institute organized the Conference-Concert "Italian and young people, narrating music" on October 17, aimed at enhancing the link with the Italian language through music. On that occasion, Prof. Dinko Fabris, the first Italian elected president of the International Musicological Society, shared the Musicologues sans frontière project with the high school students: the commitment of Italian cooperation. The students then had the opportunity to discuss the proposed theme and interpret some pieces of the operatic repertoire and of the author's song.
