Project number: 2003-49
Beneficiary: Istituto S.Giuseppe della Montagna
The Nando Peretti Foundation financed the renovation of The Istituto San Giuseppe della Montagna in Rome. It is a house run by Catalan nuns and gives a home and a family to 14 children ranging from 1 to 15 years of age. These are mostly children of immigrant working parents, that wouldn't otherwise be able to support them. The premises of the Istituto San Giuseppe della Montagna needed serious renovation with an eye to the needs of children: non slippery pavements, washable walls, new bathrooms, new aluminium window casings, heating system. The Institute is financed only through private donations and nothing is charged to the children's families.
