Cooperativa Sociale Il Faro

The Italian association Il Faro has been active in Brindisi and Latiano since 2014 by providing welfare and housing as well as various socio-cultural activities. Their work aims to bridge the gap regarding state aid measurements, targeting pregnant refugee women and mothers who have experienced violence or are in similar distress and creating a place for cultural events and workshops in rural areas that encourage personal growth.The old factory building La Fabbrica del Farò Il Faro is the association’s centerpiece that carries out numerous forms of art in the social field. Surrounded by four hectares of land for permaculture and a year-round operating circus on site, the building contains two huge apartments and 800 square meters of seminar space suitable for experimental cultural activities, where currently a social theater and dance studio are created.
