Visit to the cultural park of San Giovanni ex mental Health Hospital (by the social Cooperative La Collina)
You can take part at a guided walk, lasting about an hour and a half, through what is now a beautiful flower garden, on the edge of the city of Trieste, crossed and experienced by many people for leisure, curiosity, relaxation, university studies, work in the health and social field, etc. But, until the mid-70s of the last century, it was a Provincial Psychiatric Hospital, an Asylum where people were segregated because of their mental (real or presumed) illness. San Giovanni, above all thanks to the commitment of dr. Franco Rotelli and his collaborators, is one of the few examples in Italy and in Europe of virtuous recovery and reuse of such a tragic place, in favor of the community.

Places of social cooperation in the city
AUSONIA – Trip to the sea, in the urban context of Trieste, to visit a historic bathing establishment, important for the tradition of summertime in the city. A place that, after a past of great popularity between the 50s and the 90s, was in a state of complete abandonment at the beginning of the new century. It was in fact, social cooperation that in 2005 restored the establishment to the citizens, through the constitution of the AUSONIA Consortium, which counts today 9 local social cooperatives.
TRIESTE LABORA – Showroom and shop in the historic center of Trieste, collects and sells objects, works, projects and ideas of different artisan laboratories in favor of disadvantaged people, by the Social Services of the Municipality of Trieste and the associations and cooperatives that work and collaborate to the project.
