Three hours a week, for a period of two months, young people with disabilities will make their contribution to the production of wine, taking care of the vines in a particularly delicate period such as that of vegetative growth and the birth of grapes. They will help with pruning, tying, cleaning hedges and doing cellar chores, experiencing manual work in the open air that takes place in contact with nature and in collaboration with others for a common goal. And imagining an “active” tomorrow starting from an integration based on participation and not on simple welfare. Here it is the project “Let’s put ourselves to the test-Enabling paths for disabled children”, curated by the Association of Parents for Boys Down Bologna and funded by the Cassa di Risparmio di Bologna Foundation, thanks to which, from 6 May, a group of young people with intellectual disabilities will pursue a professional path among the rows of the Palazzona di Maggio Estate in Ozzano dell’Emilia to promote their job placement. A social agriculture project “which aims to demonstrate how, with the right training, people with intellectual disabilities can participate in the production process, with therapeutic effects for them but also for the climate of the entire work team of the host companies”, he said. Antonella Misuraca, president of the Association.
