The "Polveriera" is an urban regeneration project conceived by the "Consorzio Oscar Romero" and social cooperatives:
together with other companies, associations and local bodies.
The initiative aims to redevelop an existing neighborhood ("Mirabello") at risk of degradation, through the regeneration of a part of a structure used as a weapons warehouse during the Second World War, acquired on free loan.
The regeneration allowed to start a series of initiatives on the concerned area:
- disability and for asylum seekers services
- employment agency
- cultural and socio-occupational space
- civic hall
- multipurpose hall
- trade activities of organic products and short production chain.
Main activity field:
