OUR VILLAGE! It’s called Gorgoglione and it’s a very small village. It is situated on a mountain 840 metres high and 50 minutes fom the sea. There are 1100 people in our village.It dates back to the Middle Ages. It was the shelter for those populations looking for a place up in the hills where to protect themselves against malaria and against the incursions on behalf of the invadors. The name of the village derives from “Gurgulio” because of the gurgling waters of the nearby torrent Vallone.
OUR COUNTRY! Italy is our country. It’s very strange because it’s shaped like a boot. There are 20 regions in Italy. Rome is it’s capital.

There is clear air in Gorgoglione, in fact there isn’t smog!!!
There are a lot of spring waters, so people use this water to irrigate the fields because they are rich lands.
Gorgoglione hasn’t got a dump, but there is the wastes disposal to Pisticci, a place near Gorgoglione; so people make the waste separation.
In the territory of Gorgoglione there is wind energy with the presence of five blades, unfortunately this causes noise to the residents of the area. After a visit, pupils have drown a blade with Paint programme. Rotor ( Rotore ) Engine ( Navicella) Tower ( Torre ) Foundation ( Fondamenta ) 60 metres
In our school there is the “Robolab” project. The pupils have built a little model to see how wind energy operates. Look at the blade that spins fast even if the pupil is spinning slowly the handle.
