THE NEW SOCIAL
StraVagante Hostel is a social project by L'Officina dell'AIAS cooperative society.
Its goal is to establish a new balance between the needs of Verona's most fragile citizens and a turbulent labour market. That's why this hostel is a place with no barriers between abled and disabled people, both physically and metaphorically. Well supported by social operators, educators and volunteers, the Hostel is managed by disabled people, involved in different activities: the reception service, the cleaning service, the bar service and the organization of cultural and local promotion events. Each and every hostel area, both inside and outside, is easily accessible by anyone and healthcare services are provided for guests with special needs.
Coming to StraVagante Hostel is not just discovering a nice place.
It's the coolest way of doing good.
