Since last week, the activities of many of the winning projects of the European project Tonite have officially started with events, co-design meetings and preliminary presentations to the public.

The aim of these actions is to make more livable, especially in the evening hours, the areas of Aurora and Vanchiglia/Cle, as if the two districts were “illuminated” by a new beginning.

During the sixteenth edition of the Festival of Popular Cultures was presented one of the winners of the call Tonite: the Gardens on the Dora, a concierge community in the Aurora district. Project designed to transform aesthetically and functionally a stretch of the long Dora Savona, between Bologna bridge and the bridge of Corso Regio Parco, from a corridor of passage and parking in a place of encounter and human and cultural exchange.

In addition, as part of the Grandangolo project, the boys and girls of the 5C Parini School began to paint the sidewalk in front of the entrance of the school: a transformation rich in colors that has seen the children together with the students of the Course of Territorial Planning and Design of the Polytechnic of Turin.

As for the Vanchiglia-Cle area, the project Bocciofila 2.0 organized at the Bocciofila Vanchiglietta Rami Secchi a yellow-comic dinner of Commissioner Pautasso “The Mystery of the cemetery” for the night of Halloween in the sign of theater and Piedmontese cuisine.

For the project Per.Notte instead, in the area of the “Benches” of Borgo Rossini, was set up a mobile social health center aimed at preventing the abuse of alcohol and substances, designed by Cooperativa Frassati Onlus and Cooperativa Italiana Artisti Soc., aimed at preventing alcohol and substance abuse.

Finally, on November 20, in Via Chivasso 10, from 3 pm to 6 pm it will also be possible to participate in the first Yalla Aurora co-planning event: the new participation center for communities and young people, a multifunctional space of socialization, study, training, cultural animation and youth participation, as well as a reference point for the entire community of the Aurora district, promoted by the Islamic Association of the Alps – Turin and Generation Bridge.
