[email protected]
Dear friends of UWC Adriatic
elcome to the 2010-2011 Annual Report. It provides a recap of the highlights of the past year and
celebrates the essential support we have received from our alumni and friends which allows us to
remain committed to our values, ideals and mission.
During the last year, we received more alumni support than ever before despite the continuing difficult
economic times. This is perhaps the most significant testament that the work we do is life defining and will
contribute to the peaceful and sustainable future to which we all aspire.
Please read about some of our youngest and oldest supporters in Miljan Todorovic and Dr. Aldo Pianciamore
(pp. 14-15) as well as our outreach work with the European Union Education Council and the CHERI project
in Montenegro (pag.9). Through our ever expanding alumni network and partners, the mission of making
education a force for uniting people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future lives on well
past the two years of college life.
Thank you once again for all the ways that you support UWC Adriatic and for your help in securing our
future together.
With gratitude,
Prof. Peter T. Howe

was the setting for the Opening Ceremony for the
29th Academic Year at UWC Adriatic in Duino, chaired
by the President, Ambassador
Gianfranco Facco Bonetti and
attended by the Friuli Venezia
Giulia Regional Government.
The event was truly unique
and charged with special
importance, as, for the first time
in 29 years, the Regional Council
accepted the invitation to hold
one of their weekly meetings
in Duino and to subsequently
attend the Opening Ceremony.
The College President and
the Mayor of Duino Aurisina
welcomed the Regional Council
and at the end of their meeting, the traditional flag
procession marked the beginning of the Opening
Ceremony with 87 countries and regions represented
by over 180 students attending UWC Adriatic this year.
The presence of the Heads of the Regional and
Provincial governments was a fitting context in which
to honour Antonio Comelli, President of the Region
F.V.G. from 1973 to 1984 and one of the strongest
and most convinced promoters and supporters of
the United World College in Duino. In the affectionate
words of Amb. Facco Bonetti: “If it had not been for
him, we would certainly not be here today.” A plaque
dedicating the Foresteria residence to his name was
unveiled in the presence of avv. Comelli’s children and
The occasion was further marked by the President of the
Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Udine e Pordenone,
announcing a scholarship in his memory.

XXIX° Cerimonia di Apertura del
Collegio del Mondo Unito dell’Adriatico
n mare di bandiere colorate e di giovani volti raggianti, è
stata questa la cornice nella quale ha preso vita la Cerimonia
di Apertura del XXIX° Anno Accademico del Collegio del
Mondo Unito dell’Adriatico di Duino,
presieduta dal Presidente dello

la prima volta in 29 anni di vita del
Collegio, la Giunta Regionale ha

degli 87 paesi rappresentanti gli oltre 180 studenti presenti
quest’anno al Collegio del Mondo Unito. La Cerimonia, vista la
presenza dei vertici regionali e provinciali, è stata l’occasione
per rendere omaggio all’avvocato Antonio Comelli, Presidente
della Regione Friuli Venezia Giulia dal 1973 al 1984 nonchè uno
dei più forti e convinti promotori e sostenitori del Collegio del
Mondo Unito di Duino. “..Se non fosse stato per Lui, sicuramente
noi non saremmo qui oggi” ha ricordato con affetto l’Amb.
Facco Bonetti durante il suo intervento.
All’avvocato Comelli è stata intitolata la residenza della
Foresteria e durante la Cerimonia, alla presenza dei figli e
dei nipoti dell’avvocato, è stata svelata la nuova targa posta

In memory of ...
Corrado Belci
orrado Belci, the founding President of UWC Adriatic, died on 3 May 2011.
Corrado was a great man and it is without doubt that the Adriatic College would never have
been founded, nor prospered in its first two decades without Corrado Belci’s critical and absolute
support. Corrado was also a key political player on the local and national scene as a Member of
Parliament and member of the Italian Government. His commitment to the College and to this area,
along with his personal integrity made him an exceptional character and a force for good who shall
be sadly missed.
Corrado Belci’s funeral took place at the Monte Grisa Sanctuary near Trieste.
The College was represented at the funeral with a delegation of approximately 50 students who
carried their national flags to honour Corrado.
For 15 years Corrado Belci focused on ensuring the financial health of the College
To commemorate his dedication to this cause, we have set up a scholarship in his memory.
“His lesson on frank respect of other opinions as a means to better understand and refine one’s own, even in situations
of extreme conflict, is the legacy we undertake to keep intact in these sad circumstances and pass on to those who will
follow. This represents the very essence of the UWC mission to which he dedicated a large, and perhaps the happiest and
most fertile part of his life. He loved his country and his Julian homeland with sincere patriotism, bathed in love for his
neighbour and respect for the cultural diversity that characterises and enhances the human race.”
Amb. Gianfranco Facco Bonetti - President of UWC Adriatic
Anne Ginestier
WC Adriatic lost a dear friend and supporter with the death of Anne Ginestier on
30 January 2011, following her determined fight against peritoneal cancer.
Anne came to the College in 2004 from UWC Red Cross Nordic when her husband Jean
Paul Ginestier took up the position of Head of Mathematics following the retirement
of Elham Sheiry. Anne and J-P were residence tutors in Palazzine for their 5 years here
and touched the lives of everyone they met. Anne was a champion of all students and
their potential and so it was only fitting that she became involved in the University
Guidance office where she provided invaluable counsel and support for our students
– her door was always open whether in her office or at home, a cup of tea at the
ready. It was through Anne’s efforts that the Student Foundation was reimagined,
an initiative that would not only provide warm
clothing to those without but to raise money for
students in need. The Student Foundation bazaar
was born with sales of used clothes and other
donated items - all priced to sell at €1/item!
Anne was a person fully aware of the power of
small things to make a big difference. She was
determined to make the world a more beautiful place and led the gardening activity at the
To honour her memory, we have planted an Olive tree, symbol of peace, Italy and longevity.
It is 15 years old and located on Fore lawn next to the Ceramics Centre (see photo).
Anne loved UWC students and now Jean-Paul has made a generous donation of €25,000
in their name and her memory to support our efforts to strengthen our alumni relations.
We thank the Ginestier family for their belief in UWC Adriatic.

2010-2011 Academic Year
Strategic Plan 2010-2015
or the first time in the nearly 30 years history of the College, we stopped classes for a day to focus on the College of the
future: our vision for this multicultural educational force, the problems and difficulties we will have to face, our objectives,
hopes and wishes.
The future of UWC Adriatic. Big Ideas, Big Dreams. No limitations.
That was the starting point for the current students of UWC Adriatic to think about what we want this place to be in 10
years time. The morning was then filled with a wide range of discussion groups, led by those who believed the topics
were important to discuss, in an open space manner. Such themes ranged from cultural shock,where we discussed the
differences of judging and accepting, and how to find weekend activities that were not alcohol orientated. The future of
the music program disscussion resulted in planning and producing an arts marathon. The first year and second year divide
topic had a very positive result since many students felt that our year had a good mixture. We also talked about how we
can be active over the vacations and extending the introduction period needing to have a better
transition to 'reality'. Ways of improving communication was a topic in which many believed
there should be more linking with the entire movement. After a morning of intensive thoughts
and discussions, the entire community then joined together before lunch by creating traditional
Tibetan Prayer flags in which everyone was invited to write, draw or show in any way or language
that they want to express their hope or dream for their future of UWC Adriatic. This colourful array
of dreams now hangs in the auditorium foyer as a creative reminder that we are capable of reimaging the future of our UWC.

World Arts & Cultures Conference for the European Commission Staff
he session, led by Henry Thomas (teacher of World Arts and Cultures) and Rettore Peter Howe, was a milestone for the
College’s outreach programme.
The session was opened by Xavier Troussard, Head of Unit-Culture Policy, Diversity and Intercultural Dialogue. What better
person to appreciate how our school based syllabus “World Arts and Cultures” is relevant for addressing issues of cultural
identity within the enlarged EU. During the training session, Henry Thomas transported the 60 participants to his “virtual”
classroom, challenging them to look closely at various cultural phenomena and ask themselves questions about their meaning
and the context in which they were created.
The approach focused on World Arts and Cultures’ distinct
syllabus, which can be adopted to foster cultural awareness
even outside the IB context. With “cultural awareness” as one
of the 8 key competencies identified by the EU Education
Commission in 2008, the session proved to be of great interest
to the decision makers in Brussels.
Before and after the Conference, College representatives
held various meetings with EU commission decision makers,
including Ms. Alison Crabb, Deputy Head of Unit-Culture Policy
& Intercultural Dialogue.
The event was held in the Madou Plaza Tower, headquarters of
the EU Directorate General for Education and Culture and was From left to right : Xavier Troussard, Henry Thomas, Peter Howe

Light’s Flavour
emories of a trip through Israel and Palestine” , was the title of the photographic exhibition inaugurated on Thursday,
7 April 2011 in the UWC Adriatic Auditorium. The exhibition consisted of 40 photographs taken by Alessandro di Maio
and Mario Sgarrella, Italy (AD 2002-04) who brougth their splendid collection of images in Duino.
Rima Chahin (AD 2010-12) from Palestine and Idan Zamir (AD 2010-12) from Israel, spoke during the Ceremony and briefly
recounted the “experience” of their first year at the College.
“Light’s Flavour” inauguration
Mario Sgarrella, Italy (AD 2002-04)
I had the luck of meeting Mohammed and Rima, two Palestinian students very close to my
heart as all others. I struggled in the beginning with also other Middle Eastern students and
had multiple debates about the very long conflict that exists, and what I understood is that
underneath this facade of interest in international politics and personal principles, everyone
is in the same extent as human, as emotional, and the same as I am. UWC Adriatic was indeed
for me the chance to be able to call an international community “family”.
Idan Zamir - Israel (AD 2010-12)
Before my arrival to Italy I was thinking if the people here will accept me as a Muslim Palestinian
girl having a veil, but I was surprised when I saw how they respected my religion, my beliefs as
if they were my family. The most important thing I got from UWC was how to live with people
from different religions and nationalities, having peace and tolerance in our relationships. I
never thought I would be with these people which they are my family now.
Rima Chahin - Palestine (AD 2010-12)
The exhibition was
opened by
Mrs. Liliana Stock,
from Trieste,
whose sensibility
and generosity
have provided the
scholarships for these
two students to
attend the College.

Fondazione CRTrieste Prize
Premio Fondazione CRTrieste
here could be no better setting than the Closing
Ceremony for the 29th Academic Year of UWC Adriatic
in Duino to award the “Fondazione CRTrieste Prize for the
promotion of the Italian language in the world” .
The prize is now in its 4th edition and was established by
Fondazione CRTrieste to recognise the achievements of
non-native Italian-speaking students who, in the course
of the two years at UWC Adriatic have distinguished
themselves in their acquisition of competence in Italian.
The prize was awarded by a representative of Fondazione
CRTrieste to this year’s winners (AD 2009-11):
Justin Koh (Hong Kong)
Sergio Prin (Venezuela)
Shoya Miyashita (Japan)
Emma Rasmussen (Norway)
Our italian teachers had the difficult task of nominating
the prize winners, who each received an iPad.
The commission decided to award two prizes in the
Higher Level Italian course, one for Standard Level, and
one for Ab Initio.
The prize is an important recognition of the efforts and
dedication of over 150 non-native Italian-speaking UWC
Adriatic students who study Italian each year. Despite
the subject being extremely difficult and demanding for
many, there has been a noticeable increase in competence
in recent years, which is also due to the friendly rivalry
amongst students to win the prize.

Chiusura del XXIX° anno accademico del Collegio del
Mondo Unito dell’Adriatico di Duino, per la consegna del “Premio
Fondazione CRTrieste per la diffusione della lingua italiana nel
mondo” .
Il Premio, giunto quest’anno alla sua 4a edizione, è stato istituito
per volontà e con il contributo della Fondazione CRTrieste per
premiare quegli studenti, di madre lingua non italiana, che
nel corso dei due anni di studi al Collegio del Mondo Unito
dell’Adriatico, meglio si sono distinti nell’apprendimento della
lingua italiana.

CRTrieste è stato assegnato quest’anno (AD 2009-11) a :

Gli insegnanti di Italiano hanno avuto il difficile compito di
nominare gli studenti vincitori, ciascuno dei quali ha ricevuto
un iPad. La commissione ha voluto indicare come vincitori due
studenti nell’ambito dell’italiano avanzato, uno nell’ambito
dell’italiano base ed uno nell’ambito dell’italiano per principianti.
Il premio rappresenta un importante riconoscimento dell’impegno
e della dedizione con i quali gli oltre 150 studenti non italiani del
Collegio del Mondo Unito dell’Adriatico si dedicano ogni anno
allo studio della lingua italiana. Con il passare degli anni c’è stato
un notevole incremento di eccellenze anche in questa materia
per alcuni veramente difficile e impegnativa, grazie anche alla
simpatica rivalità nata tra gli studenti che ogni anno sperano di
aggiudicarsi l’ambito premio.

Discovering “made in” Friuli Venezia Giulia
n addition to studying Italian, all our students participate in a programme designed to introduce them to Italy’s unique
heritage. This programme includes specific visits to centres of excellence within the Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia.
This year our students were hosted by Calligaris, one of the leading italian home design company and Illycaffè.
The students greatly appreciated the opportunity to get an insight into what makes a companies an international name and
market leader. Both Calligaris and Illycaffè were truly honoured to welcome these youngsters from all over the world who, as
the experience of our alumni has shown, will carry with them wherever they go, the memories of their life changing experience
in Friuli Venezia Giulia. This programme will continue in the next academic year and we are keen to extend the visits to other
companies too .

Stories of Donations
Peer-to-peer generosity at just 16 years old
riginally from Trieste, Miljan Todorovic currently attends the International School of Milan .
At a recent Sotheby’s Photography auction he sold one of his photographs for € 2500.
When Miljan heard of our netbook project, he decided to donate the money he made from the photograph to buy netbooks
for some of our more needy students.
The netbook project was launched in 2009 by Mary Myers, a long standing friend of the College who will soon join our Council
of Administration, as part of the Harvard Club of Italy’s (HCI) work to promote excellence in secondary schools.
In 2009-2010 HCI members donated six netbooks and now, thanks to Mary’s activity, Miljan has donated a further seven.
Together, Mary and Miljan have made a significant difference to a number of young lives.

Fondazione Cattolica Assicurazioni sponsors a student from Veneto;
Fondazione Cariplo sponsors a student from Lombardy.
With the decrease of public funding, we are particularly happy to have been able to guarantee regional scholarship support
for Italian students thanks to our new donors.
“I come from Portogruaro, a small town very close
to Venice. UWC has been my dream for many years.
I have always thought that there was much more
to learn in the world than what I could learn by
staying in my town, so I attended the selections.
Now I am a student at UWC-USA, and I feel I am
living the best experience
of my life. Although I am
thousands of kilometres away
from home, I feel like the
UWC community is now my

“ 5 per mille ” :
Un ringraziamento di cuore a tutti coloro che hanno voluto destinare il 5 per mille dell’IRPEF 2008 a sostegno del Collegio del Mondo
Unito dell’Adriatico di Duino e delle sue attività.
Grazie alla vostra sensibilità abbiamo potuto ricevere nel 2010 oltre 70,000€

Fundraising College Service Team
The Fundraising College Service Team 2010-2011
During the 2010-2011 academic year, our Development and Communications Office implemented a new fundraising
initiative by recruiting a group of current students to help with the Annual Fund campaign. Their activities were
focused on phoning alumni and exchanging views on their respective experiences, illustrating current projects and
activities taking place at the College, and also speaking about how they can help the college financially by contributing
towards the Annual Fund.
Our alumni response to the launch of the Annual Fund Campaign in September 2010 was heart-warming: more funds
were received in the period September-December 2010 than in the whole of 2009, and the total amount had more
than doubled by the end of the fiscal year.
A new team will continue their excellent work in 2011-2012.
