multi-purpose centre girocastro (al)
in the nomad camp
At the end of the 80’s, together with Carlo Pozzi, I designed a literacy school for Romani children on the edge of the city of Argirocastro, in Albania, for the humanitarian organization Tolbà. Two inspection trips were necessary to investigate and understand the issues connected with that area, which was affected by the civil war of 1990. In Girocastro alone, 46 children were reported becoming disabled due to severe firearm wounds; the project had a precise objective: not only Albanian children, but also those of Romanian or Greek origin with a social or economic disadvantaged background were to be given the opportunity to have access to education for the future of an entire country.
