|Description of the project
|Among different projects, volunteers from the Capitano Ultimo Onlus association have created a leather workshop where genuine handmade leather products are made.
It is a unique product made exclusively by volunteers, juvenile detainees, boys from group homes and people with psycho-social distress, because craftsmanship is the ultimate rebellion against globalization to cultural and moral alienation.
Bags, belts, wallets, suitcases are made together with master craftsmen.More widely, it takes place in house where 10 persons have built a micro-economy fed by the families who come by every weekend. “We have restored 8 rooms where we host homeless people free of charge who make an effort with us to survive.” (website) Religious ceremonies are also an important part of the association.
