  •  “We believe in this project because a bridge is something that joins, connects, brings us closer to people more unfortunate than us. For example, the Leonardo Da Vinci’s bridge is famous because it has to be built by at least two persons: one more reason to think to the bridge as cooperation between peoples.”

  • “A feature that particularly struck me was that the Association involves people in the Community’s development. I believe that including local people and making them feeling partakers in their progress is a good strategy on which to rely on. So it is possible to make them more willing to improve their life conditions: it is clear that something realized with a personal contribution make people proud of it and, so, more inclined to go on on the same way.”
