On July 31st, “Gruppo Scintilla – Vivere meglio adesso” family and kids from Vicenza gathered at “Pampas – Il giardino inclusivo” for an afternoon dedicated to sharing and playing.
Following the successful event, entitled “Pigafetta’s Mandala”, which took place earlier in July, children were involved in several games, and activities. The aim: stimulating inclusiveness through interactions and reciprocity.
By building a network of local citizens, Gruppo Scintilla is intended to re-generate the urban spaces
From “Pampas – Il giardino inclusivo” terrace, kids’ giggles and laughs flooded the streets of Vicenza, nearby Viale Milano (Milano Street), urban heart of the project itself. ALDA Project Manager, Nadia di Iulio, together with Francesca Manfron – school teacher, lead the event. Children were divided into teams, each of which had a specific symbol, identifying the group. Games and activities were meant to stimulate young participants to know each other better to communicate, and to share. Thus, social inclusiveness is among the aims of projects.
At the same time, this event was the perfect opportunity to encourage dialogue among kids’ parents. By building a network of local citizens, Gruppo Scintilla is intended to re-generate the urban spaces around the railway station and Viale Milano. Having that in mind, it comes with itself that exactly these types of events are essential to encourage citizens’ participation within the life of the city and its neighbourhood.
As many parents said, afternoons like the one organised within the project are very much needed. ALDA is glad to be actively part of this group, and invites you to join the upcoming events!
