The aim of the project is to restore Villa Bona, a wonderful historical villa of the 18th century surrounded by a big park, and to make it usable for public events, concerts, exhibitions etc. but this year the central idea of the workcamp is to exchange traditions and explore other cultures so please be ready to present something typical of your country (a dance, a song, a game, a typical dish,a custom etc.) The outdoor manual work will be in a garden close to the river Po cutting bamboo and cleaning paths and weeds; paint some benches in public gardens in the village and also fences. The work inside in the Villa Bona will be scratching wooden doors and paint them. There could also be cleaning work in some bell tower and churches. Every week the volunteers will spend half day to clean the garden of the oldest church in Carignano (17th century) that is under renovation by a volunteer association. The volunteers will be also involved in the creation of a big mural Flags without borders representing the flags of all countries. Together with the international volunteers there will be a group of local youngsters involved in the same activities. Every week the volunteers will go in two retirement homes to present their countries. The volunteers will also meat an association that run a project of taking care of refugees people, in this way they can really see how that emergency is managed in Italy. Some Carignano s families will host the volunteers for a dinner in the house to share culture and way of life. In the activities could be involved some Italian volunteers from an association called AU.DI.DO (autonomy for disabled people).

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.

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 workcamps 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.
