The 10th day of project was quite emotional, because we felt both happy and sad at the same time. We were happy, because we were having a wonderful time together, but we were sad because it was time to say goodbye.
.
We began the day by participating in a church procession celebrating the Palm Sunday (Domenica delle Palme). Local people handed everyone of us olive branches decorated with peaces of cheese and candies. Olive branch is a symbol of peace and decorations symbolize abundance and prosperity. It was another way to learn about Italian traditions.
.
After that we had a very emotional activity where everyone of us had a chance to say goodbye to each other in a way we wanted, as for example by hugging. It was a very emotional time because participants expressed a lot of love to each other, which even brought some of them to tears.. Some of them formed life-long relationships.
.
After that, a priest of San Luca church, Don Luigi, handed participants their youth passes, which they obtained by participating in this Erasmus+ project.
.
We finished the evening with a fair in Piazza San Luca. Everyone was invited and had a chance to try the traditional dishes or products from participant countries, as for example, Romanian chimney cake and Ukrainian vareniki. The municipality of Praiano surprised everyone with a huge delicious cake and Praiano magnets, which were handed to everyone. We ended the fair with singing and dancing.
.
It was a wonderful time. We feel very grateful to everyone who was involved and shared this wonderful time with us. Thank you so much!!!! This experience will stay in our hearts forever!!! ❤️❤️❤️

We started the 9th day with our daily energizer and after that we formed teams to talk about the role of stakeholders in promoting local products. We've learned how difficult it is to start a business.
.
After lunch we cooked a typical Belarusian dish: Draniki. It was really tasty!
.
We concluded the day with the Ukrainian cultural night: we ate some traditional dishes, sang and danced to traditional Belarusian songs and enjoyed our time together. .
It's been a fantastic day!

We started the 8th day of the project with a trip to Il Gusto della Costa where we degustated fresh lemons, lemon marmalade and, of course, one of the most famous local products - limoncello.
.
After we were back, we formed teams and thought about how we could create new businesses out of other local products of Praiano, such as ceramics and tomatoes. It was very interesting to listen to all of the ideas participants came with!
.
We ended the day with an Italian cultural night. A wonderful community of Praiano made this evening unforgettable: they made very delicious Napolitan pizzas; baked a wide variety of Italian cakes and cookies; played us Italian music and thought Italian dances!
.
A day well spent!

Day 7 was an amazing day. We started off playing the “coffee chain” game. This game is perfect to make people think about the consequences of the fragmentation of interests of the producers, roasters, shippers, retailers. This activity illustrated the many steps in the coffee chain and the unequal distribution of profits that results in coffee farmers being treated so unfairly.
.
After that we started to discuss about the definition of local products and what we should do in order to promote them.
.
In the afternoon we enjoyed a workshop that was organized by Italians. Few masters of this art from Praiano showed us how to make tombolo, a sort of lace worked with a special pillow and proper bobbins, which is a very traditional Italian craft. One of the ladies called Carolina even taught one of us how to do it.
.
After that, we cooked a delicious typical dish of Praiano: migliaccio salato. It was delicious! .
In the evening we had some free time to enjoy the beautiful village, buying in local shops, eating ice cream.
.
Finally, we ended the day with the Belarus  cultural night. They presented their country dressed up in traditional clothes, shared with us their traditional snacks and invited us to dance to traditional Belarus songs. It was really interesting.

The art of "Tombolo" - connecting generations in Praiano.
.
A traditional art that is transferred and taught from one generation to the other. Although it exists in different regions, every region has it’s own ways of creating these beautiful textiles. Thank you so much to Carolina and the circle of Tombolo in Praiano, Amalfi Coast for sharing their passion with us and letting us try it ourselves! 😍 A moment of connecting generations.

Day 6. We started a day with a "Tree"-reflection, where everybody could express themselves in an creative way. We were evaluating how we feel about the project thus far in terms of; acheivements, skills gained and ambitions for the rest of the project.
.
A little bit later we had a great opportunity to find out new facts abot local products from participant's countries, such as; wine from Spain, honey from Belarus and Re Fiascone tomatoes from Italy. We also learned more about Acarbio assossiation and it’ value to the local production.
.
We then had a workshop on beautiful carpets from Moldova and had the chance to create our own versions using paper!
.
In the evening we watched a very inspiring and motivational movie about local production called ‘Tommorrow’ (we really reccommend watching it to find out more!).
.
It was a great day and we’re looking forward to deepening our knowledge on the subject.

A special thanks to the community of Praiano!
.
Luca, Mimmo, Don Luigi, and Anna told us about how things have changed in the last decades. They talked about what local products they used and how, in those times, they lived off what they produced themselves. Many of which products not cultivated anymore, which is a shame. Something they hope for from the younger generations is that they keep up their motivation and inititive to shape the region in their own way.
.
It was very insirational. Grazie mille!

Day 5.

In the morning we hiked to the San Domenico church in the mountains. Along the way we were told about Easter traditions, interesting facts about local craft. Near the church we organized a picnic and had some team building activities.
.
Then the Ukrainian team led a workshop on cooking varenyky and making embroidery. Everyone had an opportunity to become a part of the proccess of making varenyky with his own hands.
.
After the Ukrainian workshop we had middle evolution activities and reflections. It was very interesting to learn ying and yang method: we wrote about all the good in the bad and the bad in the good that had happened this day.
.
In the evening there was a meeting with elderly of Praiano. The elderly told participants about local production and their life.
.
It was a great day!

The third day of the project was a really productive and fun day. Today without any doubt everybody has learnt something new. Every country, which is Moldova, Romania, Italy, Spain, Ukraine and Belarus presented their local products and the issues they are facing.

We are excited to learn more about local products, diversity and cultures of other countries in the upcoming days!
