Communitarian life after the earthquake in the Amatrician Basin
Description: The association Pro Villa Capricchia was born to carry out activities of social utility and of social, civic, recreational, ecological and environmental development, while contributing at a betterment of the quality of life of the residents of Capricchia, a hamlet of Amatrice, in the province of Rieti. It fosters the initiative "SOS Capricchia - adopt a hamlet" dedicated to the management of the emergency, to the support for the residents, and to the reconstruction of the common spaces and facilities of Capricchia, seriously damaged by the earthquake of 24 August 2016. It aims at laying the foundation to the future social and economic rebirth of the community of Capricchia and works in a coordinated and complementary manner with other institutional and benevolent activities.
Type of Work: The association Pro Villa Capricchia, to regenerate in the earthquake-affected areas a sustainable tourism based on the valorisation of the territory, built small wooden houses to host tourists registered at the Pro Loco. SCI volunteers will carry out various activities: support the population of Capricchia and the Pro Loco activists in the meals preparation for guests and for the same activists, in the maintenance of the hosting infrastructures and common facilities (cleaning, laying and clearing the table, little works of maintenance of the place) and in the design and preparation of some artistic performances (theatre, music, jugglery, etc) according to their skills, to be performed in the workcamp evenings for and with the village community and guests.
Study Theme: The study part will focus on a model of an autonomous management of the emergency through community-life, independent from the institutions and completely disconnected from the model of the association Civil Protection.
Accommodation: SCI volunteers will sleep in 4 or 2 places tents. The facilities (toilets and showers) are shared with the rest of the community. The volunteers will eat together with the locals, at the Pro Loco. They will help in the kitchen where and when requested.
Language: English is required. Some knowledge of Italian or the ability to understand it a little would be highly appreciated, to facilitate exchanges with the locals.
Requirements: Artistic skills in the filed of music, teathre and perfomative arts in general would be very welcomed and appreciated! In fact, that could contribute to the evening gatherings and the liveliness of the village. Adaptability to the simple life is required. The volunteers should also be ready to bear an experience emotionally very involving.
