What is Scuola Holden? What do we do here?
The Holden was founded twenty five years ago and started from an idea that seemed a bit risky, even in those days.
The idea was to create a school where not even the poster boy for student restlessness – Holden Caulfield – would be bored or expelled.
Why exactly? We wanted to teach something that captivates even the roughest among us – stories. How they work, where they come from, where to find them and how new ones can be told.
The teaching method also had to be special, in order to maintain the principles that keep us hooked on a good story; how they make us laugh and cry or even knock us off our feet.
Have we managed to fulfill that twenty five year old promise? We certainly believe so, but as always it comes down to the paying public to decide if the show was worth it.
