Again this year, on the occasion of World Day against poverty, There will be numerous initiatives throughout Italy

The Federation has collaborated in the Organization of the event which will take place on the day 10 October in Milan in the Alessi Hall of Palazzo Marino at hours 9.00

The purpose of the Conference is to present some points which the Associations engaged in the field under the serious marginalization, deem to be given priority over measures that should be implemented for the dignity of the people who are in difficulty

The Italy is one of the very few countries that do not have a policy to combat poverty and this obliges each municipality and associations operating in the area to reinvent every time the interventions to be implemented, without having a consolidated base of experiences and practical guidelines from which to carry out actions immediately effective and useful evolving challenges

The themes of the Conference start at a document that the Milanese associations they share with FIO. PSD and that is on three main themes that are not the only ones to be presented to the Congress for animating an opportune debate
