OUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS
1. Use of organic cultivation techniques and renewable energies
2. Provision of a day hospitality for 15/20 disabled young people

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The Order of Padri Somaschi donated to the Sermig Foundation the property Torre dell’Eremo, constituted by 34.700 square metres of agricultural land and woods and a 3.340-square-metre building. The works for the Tower’s refurbishment and restoration also extended to the adjacent building of historical importance and, in addition to this, new edifices and a storage shed were erected.
Torre dell'Eremo houses a day hospitality for 15/20 disabled young people, coming especially from the surrounding area, and offers them the possibility to learn a job related to agriculture. It is the right place also for whoever wishes to learn more about social and environmental subjects, experience silence, have a debate and pray.
A small Brotherhood from Sermig runs the whole complex and permanently lives there. The place provides laboratories for food transformation, in addition to guest rooms with 25 beds in total, a kitchen and a canteen, meeting rooms and a 150-seat conference hall. A chapel was also rebuilt within the Tower to serve everyone who wants to reflect, pray or just enjoy a moment of silence.
