The Quiz brought together different topics on Italian and European Culture: partecipants were tested on art, sport, general culture, geography, science, history, and cousine. People were able to have fun while testing their knowledge and competing with others. The idea was to share cultural information in an entertaining way and have everyone reflect on our cultural heritage as europeans.
The quizzes were also meant to contribute to the project: ''Discovery Italy''. Indeed, they were a way for us to display and share Italian culture with the partecipants. In particular, the last quiz, that on cousine, focused on Italian dishes and foods. Questions on Italian cousine were also shared the days before on Istagram: people were able to answer the Instagram polls and get a preview of the Quiz Night.
We connected all together on Zoom and then, after a small presentation, the organisers shared the links to the different rounds of the Quizzes (seven). Each quiz was made up of different and sometimes tricky questions on: art, sport, general culture, geography, science, history and cousine. While playing, partecipants were able to comment on the questions together, because still connected on Zoom. This proved to improve the partecipants' enjoyement of the quizzes. At the end we all discussed the areas in which we discovered to be most ignorant or most knowledgeable or that most surprised us.
