VIA GAGGIO (Lecco, Italy)

For Peace and Justice: an intense and shared experience of hospitality and promotion of peace

  b2ap3_thumbnail_Picture1.jpg  Inserted and in direct contact with the people, the Via Gaggio Community spends much time appreciating the synergies of committed young people and others to raise a voice against violence, the arms race, armed conflicts, etc.

      But not only this: for Via Gaggio peace is also health, happiness, a full life, for those who come by means of affection and participation. There have been many such initiatives during the existence of the community which is a model for many.

The main idea: to combine peace and justice so as to arrive at the co-existence of the differences.

       The Gospel, specifically the Beatitudes, define the framework for this meeting between differences.b2ap3_thumbnail_Picture2.jpg
