33rd International Conference Social Firms Europe CEFEC

The event, organized by the Cooperative DUEMILAUNO AGENZIA SOCIALE, is an opportunity to host the annual Social Firms Europe CEFEC Conference in Trieste. Social Firms Europe CEFEC was founded in 1987 and represents 47 social enterprises from 22 different European countries.
It will focus on the latest trends of the European social economy, with a particular attention on both the innovation potential of social enterprises in the ever changing political, economic and social environment and on the innovation strategies in social and health services, with a view to identifying new forms of reconciliation between the needs of the individual versus those of the free market. Every year CEFEC organizes a meeting to exchange and compare “best social practices” on new topics of discussion. Based on the assumption that new needs always require new answers and new synergies, CEFEC annual meeting main aim is to develop joint contributions and make them usable and transferable to different contexts. This initiative is included in ESOF 2020 international scientific events program.

Trieste

Ho attraversato tutta la città.
Poi ho salita un’erta,
popolosa in principio, in là deserta,
chiusa da un muricciolo:
un cantuccio in cui solo
siedo; e mi pare che dove esso termina
termini la città.

Trieste ha una scontrosa
grazia. Se piace,
è come un ragazzaccio aspro e vorace,
con gli occhi azzurri e mani troppo grandi
per regalare un fiore;
come un amore
con gelosia.

Da quest’erta ogni chiesa, ogni sua via
scopro, se mena all’ingombrata spiaggia,
o alla collina cui, sulla sassosa
cima, una casa, l’ultima, s’aggrappa.
Intorno
circola ad ogni cosa
un’aria strana, un’aria tormentosa,
l’aria natia.

La mia città che in ogni parte è viva,
ha il cantuccio a me fatto, alla mia vita
pensosa e schiva.
