We work towards maintaining an open society that is against all kinds of discrimination and does not deny cultural diversity, but instead brings it together for the purposes of integration, creating spaces of shared everyday life. Difference of identity, origin, religion, and culture is a source of human and cultural wealth and growth. In order to achieve these objectives, we intervene in three different themes, pursuing goals of social cohesion:

  • socio-cultural integration of migrant citizens living in the province of Lecco
  • international cooperation in Niger and the Ukraine
  • cultural promotion

These three work areas, so different from one another, are connected by a common denominator: turning walls into bridges, barriers into frontiers, confrontations into dialogue, and differences into mutual enrichment.
