It takes a village to raise a child!

The Venice CityLab is being coordinated by Smart Venice. Local activities are hosted mainly at the Laguna Libre cultural centre (which has two main rooms with an overall seating capacity for 90 people), as the historical centre is the main pilot site. Outreach to the mainland will be ensured by the Venice City Council Directorate for Educational Services and the Sumo-LabAltobello communities.

Families_Share is a positive example also for our society, because we have forgotten this aspect of being well together, of creating a mutual-help community, that we do not have to grow just individually, together we grow!
