Altotevere Senza Frontiere Onlus is an association funded by young volunteers who met each other in 2009 after the terrible earthquake of L’Aquila (Italy) where they went to provide their services to the people in the tent camps. Since that experience, they have decided not to stop dedicating their time to other people’s needs, the closest and the furthest ones. As a support to the local community, they are active on many projects, they guarantee their joyful presence every week in the town’s old people’s home and organize cultural and awareness raising events. They are also taking care of a family house for children in Kosovo, through crowd funding, food collections.
Altotevere senza frontiere organises each year “Festival della solidarietà”, a fundraising event consisting of concerts, conferences, photographic exhibitions and much more. It is aimed at raising the interest of young people towards social commitment and a sustainable and aware way of life.
Every year a growing number of volunteers come to Città di Castello from many regions of Italy. You are more than welcome to join them in this amazing experience dedicated to friendship, solidarity, but also music, culture, reflection.
Every year the Festival takes place in July. Preparation and disassembly works will start beforehand. The Festival takes place in the beautiful park “Alexander Langer”, just outside the walls of the old city centre of Città di Castello (PG).
Volunteers will be housed in tents: if you don’t own one, they will provide you with accommodation in someone else’s tent. The camping area will be set up inside the park, which is a few minutes away from the city centre and it has toilets, bicycles, and a camper parking area.
During the ten days of the event, they will ask you to be present for half a day, in order to leave you some free time to visit the town and its nearby (within 50 km you can reach Assisi, Arezzo, Perugia, Sansepolcro, Anghiari, Citerna, Montone).
For info and attendance, please call: (39) 329 2055680. Or write to: firstname.lastname@example.org specifying name, surname, date of birth, telephone number, email address, your availability
Volunteers can stay for all or part of the 10 days that comprise the set-up, the event, and the break-down.
If you want to stay for 10 days, you will be asked to contribute a fee of 40 euro which includes breakfast, lunch, dinner for the whole 10 days and the official event t-shirt. Otherwise, for those who want to stay less, the contribution is 5 euro per day.
