Casa del Quartiere of San Salvario
A laboratory of ideas for a neighborhood in transformation
The Casa del Quartiere of San Salvario is a project which was promoted and realized by the Agency for the local development of San Salvario (Agenzia per lo sviluppo locale di San Salvario Onlus) in partnership with the City of Turin, Vodafone Foundation, San Paolo Company, Circoscrizione 8 and an array of non-profit-organizations.
The Casa del Quartiere is a laboratory for the development and realization of social and cultural activities which include associations, citizens, artists and people who are engaged in the cultural sector. It is an open and multicultural space; a forum for encounter and the exchange of activities between people.
The project was launched thanks to financing from the Vodafone Foundation and the copartnership of the City of Turin for covering the cost of renovation of the building which had housed the former public baths¹ in via Morgari 14.
At the Casa Del Quartiere you will find a cafeteria, a bicycle workshop, a co/working office, a time bank, a garden, meeting facilities, information desks and a consulting room. You can attend artistic workshops and a variety of classes including: dance, oriental disciplines, music, singing, languages and informatics; you can organize birthday parties, conferences and performances; you can also propose activities that you would like to develop and carry out either as a personal project or with collaboration of the other people here.
