The Network of Family-Friendly Municipalities: A concrete experience supporting families

29 March, 2023 | 14:30 - 18:30 UTC+1

The event is promoted by the land where it all began, the Autonomous Province of Trento, which was a pioneer in Italy in the construction of the first family policies. In just a few years, the Trentino “model” has crossed the provincial borders and has contaminated other territories, starting in particular from the municipal administrations, the first to ask for support and the know-how useful for introducing family welfare policies and of support for the birth rate. An operational tool in support of the Trentino action was the “National Network of Municipalities Friends of the Family” founded on 6 October 2017 by the Autonomous Province of Trento with the Municipality of Alghero and the National Association of Large Families. Among the authorities present were the president of the Autonomous Province of Trento Maurizio Fugatti and the minister of the family, birth rate and equal opportunities Eugenia Maria Roccella. The congress is promoted with the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross (PUSC) in Rome.

The conference event will be held  on Wednesday 29 March, from 14.30 to 18.30, at the headquarters of the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross (Aula Álvaro del Portillo, Piazza di Sant’Apollinare, 49 Rome). It will be held in presence, after registering at the link at the bottom of the text, and live on the Facebook page of the Autonomous Province of Trento.

The conference works will open with speeches from various institutions, including the president of the Autonomous Province of Trento, Maurizio Fugatti, the minister of the family, birth rate and equal opportunities Eugenia Maria Roccella, His Excellency Lauro Tisi, Bishop of the Archdiocese of Trento, and His Eminence Matteo Maria Zuppi President of the Italian Episcopal Conference. Numerous sector representatives will participate in the congress, including Luis Navarro, rector of the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross – PUSC, Alfredo Caltabiano, president of the National Association of Large Families, Regina Maroncelli, president of the European Confederation of Large Families.
