Together for Genova
COSTA CROCIERE FOUNDATION AND MUNICIPALITY OF GENOA PRESENT A PROJECT FOR A NEW COMMUNITY CENTER FOR THE CITY'S CERTOSA DISTRICT
Trofie with pesto is a traditional Ligurian dish, dear to the hearts of the Genoese and of everyone who has known the city. Hearts that have been broken since 14 August, just as Genova is now split in half, by the tragic collapse of the Morandi Bridge. Therefore, we got into action through a fundraising campaign on board on our Costa fleet and for each Trofie with pesto served, Costa donated 1 euro to the affected community. During the dinner the Guests has also contributed with a voluntary donation.
Giving is contagious and also 1 euro has been given for each Guest booking from September 1 to November 30. Moreover, Costa suppliers and colleagues from all Europe joined the initiative and started giving.
Together with Municipality and Liguria Region we found out the projects supported with the 100% of the donations received. In 26 march 2019 during the event to celebrate the returning of Costa in Genova after 15 years of absence, Costa Crociere Foundation has presented the project to funnel all the donations resulted by the generosity of all the people who helped and supported us: a multi-functional building dedicated to several and different activities like dance classes, art and botanic laboratories, cooking courses, spaces for psychological assistance, game room and co-working. A place where people of different ages can meet each other and stay together. All of this in Certosa Neighborhood few steps away from the place where the 14th august tragedy took place.
An important phase has just ended in the project: local associations took part with enthusiasm, together with representatives of the Municipality of Genoa and District nr. 5, in a cycle of workshops of the participatory process to accompany the construction of a new multi-purpose aggregation center in Certosa.
We collected proposals for the aggregation activities to be held and for the center’s naming, which will be communicated very soon, at the kick-off of the refurbishment.
