Even if we have noticed that the interests are change according to the age range of the users, as for example
Younger users tend to be more interested in foreign languages and ICT
People aged 40-50 are more interested in gardening, herbs knowledge, history of the territory, psychologyPeople over 50 are more interested in practical subjects that could increase their artistic expressionWe always try to form mixed classes as we strongly believe in intergenerational exchanges as a mean of mental fitness and dynamic lifestyles.
