Italië | Restauratie en constructie
Samen met 9 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 14 dagen naar een restauratie en constructieproject.
Het project duurt van 19 augustus t/m 2 september.
Volunteers will be taking care of maintenance of the rooms in Villa Bona, a wonderful historical villa of the 18th century surrounded by a big park, situated in Carignano. The work will include: the decoration of the walls, doors and windows; cleaning of the staircase and the wrought iron railings; cleaning the garden of the Villa. There will be also some maintenance work on wooden doors of the main church (Duomo di Carignano) built on 1757. Moreover the volunteers will make some gardening work in a club, called "Barbo Merenderos", near the river Po and also restoring activities of some typical boat (barca a punta) that belong to that association. In June and some days of July, volunteers also will work with children (from 6 to 13 years old) in the summer camp of the village. For an amazing experience of exchange they could talk about their countries and also teach to the children typical songs or dances. The restoration of Villa Bona is being finalized to use the villa for public events by the committee and local organizations.
In a building with beds, communal bathrooms with showers and hot water and a kitchen. Bedrooms are provided with 4 to 6 beds per room. The volunteers are responsible for the cleaning and cooking. The organisation covers the cost of the meals and also the materials for the work. Volunteers must be equipped with a sleeping bag (or sheets), pillowcase and towels.
The town of Carignano (8700 inhabitants) is situated on the left bank of the river Po approximately 20 Km from Torino and within the Regional Parco Fluviale (park of the river). Its centre is of typical "piemontese" style, characterized by an ancient core with medieval archways and a baroque cathedral. The towns surroundings offer sites of architectural and naturalistic interest, it is also possible to reach Torino easily, as there are frequent coaches to the city. During the free time there are many exciting things to do such as visit the open market of Carignano and take part in some local events. On the weekends it will be possible for the group to organise a visit to Turin (there is a bus to and from Turin), visiting the Egyptian museum, the cinema museum, MAO museum of oriental art, the Holy Shroud etc. The costs of the FREE TIMES activities are not covered by the project.
'Giovani Insieme onlus' is a voluntary association that since 1998 has organised groups of workcamp volunteers for the protection of artistic, cultural and environmental heritage in Carignano. The work camps in Carignano were started to restore some rooms in a building in the historical centre of the town. Through this project volunteers have the opportunity to recover Carignano's architectural heritage and enjoy the environment whilst meeting young people from all over the world.
