San Patrignano

San Patrignano is a recovery community for individuals struggling with drug use disorders and social exclusion.
It’s a home and family that welcomes, free-of-charge, young people who have lost their way and need to reconnect with their self-esteem, dignity, responsibility and enthusiasm for life.
It’s a desire for individual growth that enables anyone who so desires to go back into education and continue to degree level, to obtain a professional qualification, to reclaim a trade working in the arts or get vocational training in the crafts industry, to gain a skill that taps into personal abilities.
It’s a community at peace with the natural world, a place in which to build a new sustainable environmental culture, to safeguard green spaces, a community dedicated to sustainable agriculture and devoted to animal welfare.
