Not only cooperation and immigration, but also integration for the most vulnerable groups!


The Association of Parents of the Guests of the Stella Maris Foundation - AGOSM, in partnership with DICA ONLUS, is carrying out the activities of the “FREE TO EXPRESS YOURSELF: ART AND MOVEMENT” project. The project supported with the Otto per Mille funds of the Waldensian Church aims to enhance the therapeutic and rehabilitation activities that take place at the Neuropsychic Rehabilitation Centers of the Stella Maris Foundation, in the Green House of San Miniato and in the Rehabilitation Institute of Montalto di Fauglia.


The project focuses on a group of activities selected on the basis of three parameters:

- they are therapeutic activities;

- these are all activities already tested with successful pilot interventions in rehabilitation centers in the last three years;

- these are activities that, if properly financed, lend themselves to further enhancement, i.e. they can be extended to a greater number of users than the current one.


The activities foreseen by the project are all therapeutic. The selected therapeutic activities are 5, and are divided into two groups: expressive activities and rehabilitative activities:


1. Expressive therapies

1.1 Music
1.2 Theater
1.3 Art


2. Rehabilitation
2.1 Hippotherapy
2.2 Pet-Therapy


The beneficiaries will be 102 boys and girls, both in residential and day care centers, with neuro-psychic disabilities, broad spectrum autism disorders, cognitive, behavioral and relational disorders.


The project has a duration of 12 months.
