The “Progetto di Comunità”(Community Project) is imagined to activate some inclusive processes, public choices made through the involvement of ordinary citizens, associations and private entities by undertaking a dialogue, an openness and a debate with the locals.
The purpose is to start a participatory process originating from the ground up in which residents are the protagonists: a bottom-up path type, in contrast with the top-down obsolete models that have failed too many times.
It is important that everyone becomes more liable and aware of public affairs, showing desire for active participation and citizenship, contributing to the decisions taken by local administration for the entire community.
For this reason, a transversal effort is essential so to mobilize all the resources that live and
operate in our city.
The goal is to create and make more and more collaborative our social context, taking care of the existing or developing connections, and also trying to handle any conflict, which risks of damaging the sense of community, that has to be preserved and valued as a precious pearl.
Thanks to this project we will try to create relationships, participation and sharing, because only through everyone’s active contribution we can conceive a feasible future for our territory.
