Milan, with CAP Group events open to citizens at the La Spezia park
Starting again after a year of pandemic in the name of inclusion, social cohesion and attention to the environment. Saturday 12 June the participation project conceived by CAP group, manager of the integrated water service of the Metropolitan City of Milan, to involve citizens who live in the area near via Rimini in urban and cultural regeneration activities, where the new headquarters of the public utility is being built, a building with high standards of sustainability that intends to become a meeting place and reference point for the neighborhood, thanks to the large spaces that will be open to the Milanese.
The event was born under the aegis of Collaboration Agreement signed about a month ago by the public company, by the Department of Participation, Active Citizenship and Open Data of the Municipality of Milan and from Municipality 6 with the intention of supporting and promoting the path of activities aimed at redeveloping the neighborhood.
The appointment is at 15.30 al La Spezia Park with a program of events and initiatives dedicated to citizens of all ages, adults and children, young and old. Let’s start with an art installation participated in collaboration with Serpica Naro. The idea is to give life to a work that gives a new face to the park, simply by using small everyday objects (fabrics and fabrics, buttons, bottle caps, etc.).
The challenge to urban and cultural regeneration continues with a laboratory theatrical taken from the show “We can save the world before Dinner, because we are the climate”, curated by Menotti Teatro Filippo Perego. For lovers of greenery, there are the balcony horticulture workshops in collaboration with the Cooperative Library association and, for and bimbi, will not fail edutainment activities on the theme of water and the environment in collaboration with the La Lumaca Cooperative.
No fear in case of maximum temperatures: the Water truck of the CAP Group will be present throughout the day, a water house on four wheels, which will dispense still and sparkling water throughout the day to raise awareness of the use of water of the tap at km 0, good and of quality, in the name of plastic free.
The CAP event was organized in synergy with Super, the festival of the suburbs, and with the association of social promotion NoiCoop, promoted by the Consorzio Cooperative Lavoratori, which started from September 2020 a real path of participation and involvement of the neighborhood through targeted meetings and then with the worsening of the pandemic, through online interviews and questionnaires. The activities are part of the Baronabilia project, which includes many other activities to involve citizens: throughout the afternoon, in fact, the La Spezia Park will be animated by artistic, playful and sporting initiatives, to encourage the construction of an increasingly inclusive and participatory.
Participation in all activities is free. The event will take place in full compliance with the rules and provisions. To receive more information, you can write to the e-mail address: (communication.newsite @
