Following on from the 3 buildings that have already been built – in just 150 days of construction each – ABF has accepted a new challenge, in partnership with the offices of the Special Commissioner for Reconstruction. A rebuilding project for the new “R. FRAU” Vocational High School for Industry and Craftsmanship, in its San Ginesio (MC) location, that will see the construction of a school designed and developed according to the guidelines of the Foundation’s team of experts.
San Ginesio is a medieval town of 3,300 inhabitants, where 95% of the public buildings and 68% of private homes are uninhabitable. Before the earthquake, the “R. FRAU” Vocational High School for Industry and Craftsmanship had over 150 students enrolled, a number that then fell to less than half of this due to the school’s temporary structure, which was first located on the 3rd floor of San Ginesio Middle School and then moved to the former Youth Center in Passo San Ginesio.
Creating aesthetically beautiful educational spaces that are well-kept and welcoming, where students can build and strengthen their identity through a myriad of opportunities to build relationships with others and socialize, talk, discuss and exchange ideas, spaces that are able to welcome, influence and enhance the contribution of every student in a multi- and interdisciplinary perspective by investing in continuous education: these are the foundations of ABF’s work, which celebrated its 10th anniversary of “empowering people and communities” in 2021.
Many projects have been completed in Italy and overseas to benefit thousands of students and their communities and all this is thanks to everyone’s generous, ongoing contribution.
