WRITING THEATRE is a project working within the area of school leaving. It was aimed at contributing to the improvement of quality offered by education and training services provided by the different National systems, so as to support the individuals efficiently and to answer efficaciously to the job market and social requirements ever more complex and competitive. The solutions proposed were focused on the transfer and application of training and education practices based on the development and promotion of the creative skills of both young at risk and trainers. The trainers training was centered on the adoption of a method strengthening their role as “facilitator” of learning processes aimed at valorizing the real and potential abilities of the young person. In a wider perspective Writing Theatre intended to produce a change in the Institutions, stimulating them to innovative solutions fostering the development of individuals’ creative skills
