For several years, Scuola di Robotica has been working on the responsible use of new media and socials through projects to prevent cyberbullying.
With the projects Firewall (2015) and Sun 3 and SUN 3 (2018 and 2021) we have refined the technique of Forum Theatre as a non-formal and creative methodology for the action of “putting ourselves in the shoes of the other”.
