The local Italian Alpine Club volunteers are renovating a local mountain hut that has been closed for many years in “S. M. Staffora” e “Brallo di Pregola”. These facilities will be offered free of charge to cyclists, pilgrims, artists and travellers who will be able to experience the territory not only as a place of passage, but also as a moment of encounter with its community.
The mountain community Oltrepò Lombardo, in collaboration with the Cooperativa Sos – Beeasy – Consulting Call Center, launched the Smart Oltrepò co-working space. The aim is to attract workers and families to spend time in the mountains of the Alto Oltrepò Pavese for working and discovering the territory. The Smart Oltrepò provides professionals and smart workers with a multi-functional space open 7 days per week with 4 workstations, a call room, high-speed connection, HDMI displays for computers, and convention with local swimming pool.
The ancient roman furnace of Massinigo was restored and turned into an educational hub for schools and families and a tourist centre. Domestic and international visitors can go learn about the history of the Oltrepò Pavese region, while visiting the surrounding mountains.
The social project “Crescere insieme in Alto Oltrepò” (Growing together in Alto Oltrepò) was launched to help working parents look after their children in the Municipality of Bagnaria, as well as for families in Varzi and the entire Mountain Community. Thanks to this programme, children attend educational workshops and play with their friends before and after the school hours, while their parents are working.
