A short introduction
 Our school has been named “Edith Stein” in memory of a
jewish converted catholic nun, who had once received the
doctorate in philosophy and became a member of faculty
in Freiburg. She was gassed in the concentration camp of
Auschwitz on August 1942, during the Second World War.
 The acronym ISIS stands for “Istituto di Istruzione
Superiore”, that means “Institute of Higher Education”.
 The “Vitruvian Man”, a drawing made by Leonardo Da
Vinci in 1490, is the school logo. Can you recognise it in
the background?
