Roll sleeves up By Tania Cerquiglini

David, Gianni, Mario, Nati. A professor who cultivates and grows a neighborhood, a kind retired builder who never stopped making something for himself and others, an elderly storyteller with the enthusiasm of a child whose theater runs his vein, a wonderful handyman that turns everything into beautiful artifacts. These constitute only a few of people that we met last week during our class fieldtrip in Borgobello. Common people who decided to do something for the place where they live or work, who decided to roll up their sleeves. Perugia is a town of artisans, of people able to build a dense network of ties. Perugia is a city in which urban and rural areas are blend constantly. Last friday we have not only visited one side of town but we have had the opportunity to learn about humanity and kindness, to learn about willingness to cooperate for a common project. All of this represents the good humus and the starting point to convince people to promote the rebirth of neighborhood.
