On Saturday, November 18 and Sunday, November 19, at the Aula Magna of the University of Milan, Rotary International District 2041 celebrated the centenary of the founding of the first Rotary in Italy in 1923. During the day, the three Manifestos that the Metropolitan District of the City of Milan created to take a closer look at some major issues on which Italy will have to confront in the future were presented: Youth, Work, Environment and Sustainability. 


To talk about youth, talent and opportunities, Rotary International District 2041 invited Alberto Cavalli, general director of the Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d'Arte, to the stage: he presented the results of the project "A School, a Job. Training to Excellence" - exemplary stories of young artisans who, supported and encouraged by the Foundation, have shaped their destiny. Rotary International District 2041 will support the 2023-24 edition of the project, contributing to the apprenticeship of young Milanese tailor Gabriele Fabris: a promising talent who will collaborate with Master artisan Carlo Andreacchio, of the famous atelier A. Caraceni in Milan (named MAM by the Cologni Foundation in 2016). Speeches by the President of the Lombardy Region, Attilio Fontana, and the Mayor of Milan, Beppe Sala, closed the intense first day of discussion and exchange of proposals to improve the quality of life in the areas of Youth, Work, Environment and Sustainability.
