Palermo project

In some territories, where our main warehouses are located, we are organizing projects aimed at helping the local land to solve out some social issues.


In the land of Palermo, where there are a large number of immigrants arrived in the variosu sicilian ports and where youth unemployment is very high, we have started  a reception project and the start of regular agricultural work for immigrants and young people to be reintegrated.
