Locatie en vrije tijd

Saturday, Sunday and the evening hours. Cosenza is situated 20 km from the Tyrrhenian coast (Paola, Guardia Piemontese, Diamante, Amantea etc.), which is easily reached by public transport (bus, train); it is also 40 km from the majestic Sila. In between all the beauties of the historical city of Cosenza are waiting for you, with its museums and parks, the Swabian Castle, etc.


The camp was born from the collaboration between IBO Italia and the ARCI committee of Cosenza (Arci Cosenza), recognized as an association of social promotion (aps).Arci Cosenza came into being in the 90s bringing in the territory of Cosenza a wave of culture, hospitality, inclusion and a lot of resistance.The committee fully recognizes itself in the democratic values born from the liberation struggle against Nazi fascism as well as in the history of Arci-national and its multidimensionality. Social cohesion, community development, cultural promotion, empowerment and well-being of social groups at risk of marginalization, quality of life and inclusion are the priorities of Arci Cosenza Aps.In addition, the fundamental points of Arci Cosenza Aps are the creation of a structured and cooperative network in order to make the city of Cosenza a pioneer of the words welcome and rest to offer, especially to young people, the possibility and opportunity not to abandon their land.The volunteer camp is part of a larger project of redevelopment and revival of the square Luigi De Matera through the maintenance of the space and the promotion of initiatives that are shared and participated in by the neighbourhood. These are for example: urban and social gardens, workshops for socialization, restoration of the railings and the equipment in the square. Piazza De Matera is located in the Pane Bianco district, a suburb at the crossroads between the cities of Cosenza and Rende. The square, designed to welcome the community, has been neglected and abandoned over the years, so that it has turned from a primary place of gathering, sharing and socialising into an open-air waste side and an unhealthy space capable of fuelling petty crime. The aim of Arci Cosenza, which has already been working on the square for some time through a strong network of associations and with the support of local institutions, is to restore the square to its social, cultural and political function, stimulating virtuous processes of territorial and cultural animation capable of rehabilitating the entire community and thus allowing it to take part in a form of social innovation that is sustainable over time.
