A concrete help to small enterprises of Arquata del Tronto, Accumoli and Amatrice, the municipalities of Central Italy that had to count dead in the earthquake of three years ago, was deliverded last september in front of all the local authorities.

The La Stampa-Specchio dei tempi Foundation, thanks to the economic contribution of Reale Mutua and Reale Immobili, was able to select eleven small local companies, in the sectors of agriculture, commerce and craftmanships.

The ceremony took place in the school complex of Arquata del Tronto, rebuilt by the Foundation after the earthquake. Among the "winners" there are farmers, beekeepers, geese and pig farmers, butchers, artisans, tourism operators. Small activities that represent the soul of a territory that tries to recover from the disaster of the earthquake.

 

There are over 100,000 euros available for these small businesses. These funds represent the solidarity of some building companies that have carried out interventions for Reale Immobili which, in turn, has then doubled the sum collected.

 

Specchio dei tempi continues to support Arquata del Tronto and it's still possible to continue funding our project: there is still a lot of work to do!

The selection among the contestants of the Reale Immobili -  Specchio dei tempi foundation call for tenders to support small businesses in the earthquake-stricken areas of Central Italy ended on June 27th. The requests for funding were 89, all from Arquata del Tronto, Amatrice and Accumoli, that is from the municipalities that had to count deaths in the earthquake of almost 3 years ago. The requests have touched the most varied sectors: from traditional interventions on agriculture or on the reconstruction of activities related to tourism, to particular requests such as those for alpaca farms, for bee hives, for the cultivation of truffles.

We could not reward all the deserving, but we tried to support the 11 winning projects with adequate resources so that they can be quickly implemented. From the data we have gathered, it is clear that the desire to share these territories has been rewarded by Reale Immobili and Specchio dei tempi awarding an overall injection of resources of over 100,000 euros.

Specchio dei tempi continues his effort in order to help and provide safety to the population hardly affected by the 2016 earthquake.

The gym in Arquata del Tronto inaugurated on 19th Spetember 2018 in addition to being used by the students of the school (also built by Specchio dei tempi), has become a center of aggregation for the local associations that use the gym area to promote their activities.

This year Specchio dei tempi in order to continue his support to the earthquake-stricken territory has decided, together with the Reale Group, to provide subsidies to promote the abilities of deserving subjects, support the start-up of professional activities, realize a free and profitable entrepreneurial activity.

The subsidies will consist of donations for the start-up, relaunch and development of expertises, arts or professions and for the launch of business and commercial initiatives in the municipalities of Accumoli, Amatrice and Arquata del Tronto or by the residents of these.

Two years after the earthquake, one year after the school was handed over, the gym in Arquata del Tronto was inaugurated on 19th Spetember 2018, a gift from the 16500 readers of the newspaper "La Stampa" which completed the fully equipped gym in a record time of 110 days: an area of 500 square
meters with a basketball court, a soccer field, volleyball nets and all the tools for physical education classes. "A safe place to play and grow together, thanks to the support from all over the world" explained the president of Specchio dei tempi foundation during the ceremony. The sports facility is located next to the area which hosts the maternal, primary and secondary schools since last September. The two structures, projected by "Buildings" studio from Turin, and built by Wolf Haus, a South Tyrolean company leader in earthquake-proof construction, are compatible and tested to withstand any shock. The total amount of the two interventions cost more than 3.7 million euros.

Another great goal accomplished to help the population hardly affected by the 2016 earthquake. Specchio dei tempi continues to support Arquata del Tronto and it's still possible to continue funding our project: there is still a lot of work to do!

We can proudly announce that the gym in Arquata del Tronto is almost over.

Thanks to your help, in less than a year, it has been rebuilt!

Specchio dei tempi, after the earthquake of August 2016, rebuilt the school. The Foundation, achieved this first goal thanks to the numerous donors, decided to also build the gym inside the school complex.

The building wants to be a place of aggregation and sociality for the entire population of the territory: associations and groups of people can use the structure to organize extra-school activities and sports events. It will also be a large and safe space that can host many people in the case of new disasters.

The gym will be inaugurated on Wednesday 19 September. Authorities, students, teachers and the population of the village will be present for this moment of celebration; it will also be an opportunity to spread a message of rebirth, future and hope in a territory still in difficulty. 

Continue to support Arquata del Tronto and its population!

Grazie mille dall'Italia
