A9 Short description of the GP
This "multiple type (A and B)" cooperative intends to pursue the general interest of the community for the human promotion and the social integration of the citizens through the management of the health, social-care, educational, training services, and the collaboration with the main economic-productive realities in the territory.
In particular, the attention is aimed at improving the quality of life of people with disabilities, starting from the identification of their needs, their abilities and their expectations.
The Cooperative is also appreciated for its goldsmith workshop that has been active since 2011 within the Center for Work Training of disadvantaged people. It actively involves young people with different disabilities in the production of jewelry whose esthetic value is highly appreciated.
The decision to self-commit in this sector was born from the will to exploit the territory taking back the traditional prestige of Vicenza - an historic city with historical goldsmith traditions - and at the same time re-qualifying the concept of disability, which has often a negative connotation, by linking it to beauty.
The workshop's products are made with semiprecious stones and pearls whose charm is undeniable. By the widespread use of the motto "Imperfection is our Added Value", the support of the local community and the strategic use of the local network, the jewels of Primavera '85 have reached the jewelers of the area of Vicenza and not only there, but also throughout the whole North-Eastern Italy and Riviera Adriatica to Rimini, and are presented regularly during shows organized by the local Public Institutions.
