FER-MENTI Leontine: a community cooperative for the socio-economic regeneration of mountainous areas

Founded in 2019, FER-MENTI Leontine community cooperative is a social innovation in the Romagna Apennines (Italy) that seeks to foster a socio-economic regeneration in the municipality of San Leo. Activities for the revitalisation of the territory are defined and developed by citizens, and they pursue the long-term interest of the local mountain community.

Sourced from a series of local participatory meetings – to reflect on territorial hurdles – organised by the “Confcooperative Ravenna-Rimini”, the association “Figli del Mondo” and the start-up accelerator “Primo Miglio”, the FER-MENTI Leontine community cooperative was born in 2019 with the objective to regenerate the social and economic life in the mountainous village of San Leo.

Community cooperatives, a bottom-up and multi-stakeholder network, are particularly present in vulnerable and fragile areas. Their innovative aspect stands in the capacity to empower citizens in identifying their long-term needs and actively work for the amelioration of their own mountain community, developing a sense of social cohesion and innovative entrepreneurship.

Discover in our good practice how the cooperative was born, how it works and how it addressed the challenges faced by the village of San Leo.
