Fondazione Reggio Children has been selected to take part in the Formula initiative by Intesa Sanpaolo in collaboration with Fondazione Cesvi

Santa Croce: a neighborhood in the city of Reggio Emilia with an important past and a difficult present

The Santa Croce neighbourhood is an urban suburb with a high potential of demographic, economic and social vulnerability, with the highest percentage of citizens of migrant origin (over 32% against a municipal average of 17%), elderly people living alone in conditions of economic fragility and single mothers. The local administration has decided to invest in this neighborhood, a historic industrial area of the city now neglected and abandoned, through an important project of urban regeneration that focuses on innovation and creativity.

Regeneration: let’s give back its voice and centrality to the Santa Croce community

The project, selected by the Formula initiative of Intesa Sanpaolo in collaboration with Fondazione Cesvi, wants to launch a series of dynamic Regenerations, starting from the central role of citizens – different in ages, skills, cultures – and to offer in this neighborhood, which will house the future headquarters of the Remida Center, an inclusive and intergenerational journey of appointments and workshops on sustainability, capable of enhancing the skills and the resources of the territory.

You, too, can contribute by donating on For Funding, Intesa Sanpaolo’s platform for raising funds in favor of solidarity projects.

Thanks to your donation:

  • a historic neighborhood can return to feel as an integral part of the city
  • young and old will experience opportunities to meet and create exchanges, precious moments that the isolation caused by the pandemic has made even more necessary
  • families of different cultural origins will be able to feel valued, in dialogue and in mutual listening
  • you will contribute to spreading the culture of sustainability in the community, one of the access keys for the resolution of the most delicate contemporary social issues.
