Holden, back to school!

Hi everyone,
it has been a long time since I sent a mail to the list, and I tend to accept my status of lurker. So it's almost against my will that I'm writing right now.
Today, I read the very short book "Silk", by italian author Alessandro Baricco, and on the back cover, there is his short resume. It is said that he was part in the creation of a writing school (a school which teaches narrativ proceedings, etc...) named Scuola Holden, in Turino. You can find it here: http://www.scuolaholden.it/home.htm
When I see something called Holden, I always think it relates to Mister Caulfield. And usually, I'm right, as if there was only one Holden in the whole world to refer to. This web site is in italian, but I've seen the word Salinger in the intro, so it definitely relates to him. The reason I'm writing is that I 'd like to know if there is an Italian here or someone speaking italian, who could translate the intro to know why the school is named that way.
That's it. I'm back to my status of lurker.
Bye, and sorry for my enduring bad English.
Valérie ARON
