Unique and original products with the ironic name “Malefatte” in a perfect green style. They may be purchased at the ex newsstand in Campo S. Stefano just 3 days a week from 10 am to 15 pm.
Rio Terà dei Pensieri has an EcoOpinion of 1.0
Macramè is a social cooperative that works from 1998 for the human promotion and the social integration of citizens with the planning and the management of social-training services and job placement of disadvantaged people. Officna GB is between its projects. It is a creative tailoring where textile waste, old clothes and sheets of broken umbrellas are turned into new original things made by the job of refugee foreign women and women in semi-liberty. For this reason Officina GB represents the ideal place where ecosustainability joins with other equally important cultural and social aspects.
Macramè reaches an EcoOpinion of 1.0
