the state of the art on where supervisions lead me
It is one of those points which are deep fixed in my attitude & opinion: to foster visibility to all those services, teams, educators and professionals with whom I work around Italy.
So I decided to create a map where my supervisions & group-work sessions have different colours so to differenciate them between the active (in green), those temporarily suspended (in yellow ocher) & the concluded (in red).

There are many ways of looking at things, beginning from the analysis & ending to the resulting narration. Usually, narration is supposed to support the reality. When the narration replaces reality, there can be problems.

i dig stories: project summary available on commission webpage

The abstract of the newly funded project "i DIG stories - Stories Educational Learning Facilities" is now available on the Eu Commission webpage.

the care for the care givers. A project, three groupwork opportunities of care

Some words are almost magical.
We think that the word “care” is one of them.
It is an ancient term, with a deep meaning: its original term was the latin Cura(m), which evolved in “care” and in “cure”. The latin original meanings are thought, care, but also anxiety and shortness of breath.
The entire universe of care is already condensed within its etymology.

stories of the street

1991 Berlin
Sometimes we forget the importance of the passions, the relevance & significations of all the parts of a story (both individual & collective) that recall, certify & renew the existence.
I have in mind the project "stories of the street" since many years. It has been an idea before being a project.

No more silence: one ... two ... three ... .. it's your turn to stand out

We love stories, especially those with an happy ending. We hope that this will soon be.
Like all stories, this one started with the requests for help from some parents of deaf children & with the discovery of the competition "natiperproteggere" (born2protect) where you have to: identify a history of protection, build up a project, submit; between all the received projects, 8 will be selected for the final rush. For now, we hope to be a petal of the rose.

A gloomy portrait: a look at the Italian scenario within its policies, opportunities & poverty

2015 biella (it) - pavement
My participation to the FEANTSA employment working group requires the data & impact analysis of policies targeting people experiencing social exclusion both at the national & European level.
