Foundation Mission Bambini and Foundation Marcegaglia are announcing the results of the National Call "A SCUOLA X1 GIORNO" which will finance interventions of ordinary maintenance in seven state schools in northern and central Italy.

The winning projects have been selected among more than 40 proposals sent by the employees of Marcegaglia all over Italy.

Total resources allocated through the Call are 33.762 euro: the funds will be used to purchase materials and equipment needed to rehabilitate school premises in a state of decay, repaint classrooms and corridors, recoating grilles and gates, clean up and make accessible outdoor spaces, convert unused classrooms in educational workshops and for the purchase of non-educational furniture.

This initiative – states Goffredo Modena, President of Mission Bambini- is part of our program “Parents, let us clean our schools!”: we do not want to displace the State in the task of providing security and decorum of school buildings, but show that it is possible to encourage a process of appropriation and care of the schools as common good, promoting the participation of families, citizens and non-profit organizations of the region”.

The interventions will be made by the parents and by the employees of the Marcegaglia firm.“Foundation Marcegaglia has for some years been engaged in supporting the local realities where our plants are located, primarily through the involvement of the employees of the firm – states Carolina Toso Marcegaglia, President of Foundation Marcegaglia. We are really glad of the results of this Call in which many employees have participated and have acted as volunteers to implement the projects”.

Thanks to the Call "A SCUOLA X1 GIORNO" promoted by Foundation Mission Bambini and Foundation Marcegaglia, more than 5.000 students will have a more beautiful, comfortable and efficient school. In detail the interventions of ordinary maintenance will be made in the following nursery, primary and secondary schools: Istituto Comprensivo “E.Rossetti” of Forlimpopoli (Forlì-Cesena), Istituto Comprensivo of Azzano frazione Fagnigola (Pordenone), nursery school “Mani Fiorite” of Ravenna, Istituto Comprensivo “G.Diotti” of Casalmaggiore (Cremona), Istituto Comprensivo of Ciserano (Bergamo), nursery school “Il Veliero” of Porto Corsini (Ravenna), Istituto Comprensivo of Ceresara, Piubega plesso, (Mantova).

The projects will be finalized between June and November 2016.
