In the outskirts of Rome in Corviale we have restored an abandoned public property and we did so by “playing soccer”, changing its rules and turning it into a powerful tool for social inclusion.
We created the Campo dei Miracoli, our headquarters, which favour wood, clay, cork, geothermal heating and green environmentally sustainable fields made from recycled materials to cement, in the name of circular economy.
When we started in 2009, Corviale was a great challenge for us. Across from the largest low-income housing complex in Italy known to the Romans as the “Serpentone”, with 1,300 apartments (many of which are illegally occupied), we were to turn a totally abandoned public space into a place of unity and inclusion.
