Cometa

The Association Cometa, the Group Italian partner charity for 2016-2018, is a network of families committed to foster and educate children and young people to support their families.

Cometa is a "city within a city", where children and young people are encouraged to appreciate the meaning and beauty of life sharing everyday experiences and where families are helped and supported in their education efforts.

Through an alternating work placement and study model, Cometa offers educational and professional opportunities to young and adults.

This is our second year of partnership and thanks to them and the great effort of our volunteering colleagues we've had the opportunity of helping more than 140 young adults during their school year with sessions of tutoring, role play and one to one meetings preparing their final works.

The restoration of the 99 Cannelle Fountain in L'Aquila

Borsa Italiana supported the restoration of Fontana delle 99 Cannelle in L’Aquila, the Italian city hit by the earthquake on 6 April 2009. Borsa Italiana is specifically supporting the restoration of the city's fountain. The fountain is considered the symbol of the city and therefore the restoration not only represents a concrete action in the rebuilding process but also contributes to the symbolic renewal of the city and its cultural heritage.

FAI (Fondo Ambiente Italiano) will lead the restoration activities under the supervision of the Ministry for Cultural Activities and the City of L’Aquila. The rebuilding works started in February 2010 and were completed in December the same year.
