HOW ACQUAVIVA BIBLIOLAB WAS BORN
RIQUALIFICATION: FIRST PHASE
AcquaViva BiblioLab was born to give back to the people by turning the old municipal aqueduct, out of service for nearly 10 years, into a space for everyone.
The building was then made acccessible and open to people thanks to funds coming from the public and from the project “grandi passeggiate”.
Why ACQUAVIVA (“alive water”)?
Because this place contained water.
Water, one of the four fundamental elements of the universe.
Water, that has its own story and memory.
Water, which helped the developing of Monte di Procida.
Alive, because this place is alive and ready for the future.
AcquaViva (“Alive Water”) is located in the highest point of the island because in the lowest point there is the famous beach of AcquaMorta (“Dead Water”).
“BENESSERE GIOVANI - H2O- HUB 2.0” PROJECT: SECOND PHASE
In 2018 the second phase started, promoted by the city of Monte di Procida with the main partners Archè, Rearch, Bytemotion, Iocisto and Trefoglie and financed by the Region of Campania with the funds coming from the project “Benessere Giovani”.
The idea was to create a space for everyone, with the help of associations and the participation of trainees, organizing many projects for unemployed and non studying youngsters, and also students from the high school “L.A. Seneca” in Bacoli and Monte di Procida. The main activities concerned acting, robotics, introduction to work life and creative recycling.
A survey was conducted on the people in the phlegrean area asking how socially alive the community. The result consisted in a demand of socially active spaces and areas to work and study.
The AcquaViva Lab officially opens on the 19th of December 2019 and is presented by the Mayor and many rappresentatives of the local administration.
Many tutors and trainees have then been selected to take care and organize the AcquaViva Lab. An initiative created by young people for young people, to share experiences, discuss the future and grow as people and as citizens. The project’s aim is to help young people in their growth by collecting experiences and skills which favor personal growth, active citizenship and exalt their artistic and creative personality. The old structure is now becoming a space dedicated to young people for sharing and creating new ideas.
