The first conference on city suburbs, promoted by Bracco Foundation and the Municipality of Milan in collaboration with Fondazione Cariplo and Sviluppo Chimica, has been held on Wednesday, June 20, 2018 from 9:30 AM to 4 PM at the Centro Congressi Fondazione Cariplo (via Romagnosi 8, Milan).
Baranzate is a peculiar town with distinctive elements in the make up of its social fabric: it is the Italian town with the second highest concentration of resident immigrants (33% of the 11,000 population) representing 72 nationalities, concentrated in the Gorizia quarter. In this stratified social context there are some significant shortcomings in resources and services, which help make it a difficult suburban territory. Baranzate has an urgent need for integrated interventions to guarantee the younger part of the population access to resources useful for growth. Consider that 36% of families with children under six have one or more factors of social vulnerability, 40 families among those using services for infancy are in relative poverty and six are in absolute poverty.
The initiative intends to demonstrate how, thanks to “soft instruments” based on collaboration between local players and communities, you can create genuine integration with the regeneration of the area in mind.
