8.15 am: Snodo Mandrione opens, integration and inclusion laboratory
Rome restarts from the social. And it starts again from those who need it most and from the most affected fragile subjects: in the heart of Rome opens Snodo Mandrione. A physical place, first of all, but also a network of synergies that will intervene in an area with a difficult history and great nuances in a period that sees the most at risk bands more exposed than ever. Always an open-air laboratory of integration and inclusion, the cradle of the “Zammataro method”, Mandrione confirms its vocation as a “factory” for social and recovery thanks to Snodo Mandrione, the new multipurpose center, Aps and Arci club, born in interior of what used to be an ancient Roman timber factory. Typical Capitoline shop, the joint fell into disuse in the eighties, transforming itself into an industrial archeology skeleton that still told the story of a Rome that has now disappeared. After years of decay, the shacks in via del Mandrione are restored to new life and are transformed into Snodo Mandrione.
