“We have seen various things at school, but never before” – read the entry from the technical school in Martina Franca in Apulia in the south of Italy. The post was accompanied by a photo of the bride who signed the document at the desk. It must have been a very important document, since a woman in a snow-white dress decided to come to the facility on her own wedding day.
The photo with the bride did not only circulate in the Italian media and caused a stir among the commenters.
The bride ran to school on her way to the wedding. Photo story
Who is the “runaway bride”? This is Carmela, a math teacher at an Italian technical school. A woman on her way to her own wedding had to complete the formalities related to employment.
“Our new friend had to sign a contract to grant her an annual chair of mathematics, although she had other very important plans that day. But she found a way to come to school” – explained the management of the technical school in Martina Franca.
On the way to church, Carmela entered the school in a white dress with a veil to sign a contract for permanent employment. “All the best, Carmela, you have already found our hearts” – wrote my teacher’s colleagues.
The photo has been removed from the school’s profile
Among the many comments full of sympathy and enthusiasm, there is also the opinion that the photo is very sad. Why? Because it presents the state of Italian education, in which many teachers are deprived of permanent employment contracts and have to work part-time waiting for a contract for years.
The photo with the bride in the lead role has already been removed from the technical school profile. The school did it at the request of a newly married woman.
