The association “Progetto Villa Lorenzi” deals, since 1988, with the support to the recovery of young people and the families in difficulties. Born thanks to the determination of Mrs. Zaira Conti and the fundamental contribution of a group of volunteers and consultants, everyone at Villa Lorenzi gets listening and help. A place born to offer a contribution to the recovery of social marginalities; over one thousand of young people were welcomed and comforted during these years, cooperating with local institutions, health authorities and associations.
The manor, located in the northern suburbs of Florence, is property of the Florentin Diocese, an authentic reference point for the social engagement in Florence. Villa Lorenzi succeeded, particularly, in the activation of 2 new projects: a new telephone line as parent support for families with teenagers and a collaboration project with high schools, involving over 1000 students.
In the evening of the 16th December the usual Christmas celebration with the most important civil and religious authorities took place.
