A new three-year agreement to support and contribute to the growth and integration of the welfare, social, educational and cultural services of the Barolo Social District.

Publication date: 20 March 2024

Until 31 December 2026, Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo, Opera Barolo, the City of Turin, Fondazione CRT and UIEPE (Inter-district External Criminal Enforcement Office) undertake to continue their collaboration aimed at promoting the development of welfare initiatives within the buildings and areas that make up the Barolo Social District.

This activity is intended to protect the ecosytem that has been created within the District, a strategic inclusion and support site that offers services ranging from welfare to social care, including education and culture.

The primary aim of the renewed protocol is to continue with the project intended to provide practical solutions for the most vulnerable people.

The Barolo Social District – which last year celebrated the Bicentenary of the establishment of its first centre – is in fact an important “social hub” for the city of Turin, hosting in a single uniform area many opportunities and offers of services.

By signing the protocol, Opera Barolo undertakes to allocate the District’s property complex, permanently and free of charge, to organisations that carry out socially useful activities.

The other signatories, each based on their skills, agree to work with Opera Barolo in supporting the Barolo Social District, to enhance its role within the city’s welfare system and to monitor its development and ability to adapt to emerging and constantly changing needs, creating an intervention model that can be exported to other local areas.
