Our Partner

Oliver Twist School was founded in 2009 and it is part of the activities of the Cometa Foundation. Cometa have been working for several years in the construction of a City inside the City, a place where young people and their families can grow, study and gain competences. Several hundreds of young people have lived inside the community: thanks to the help of the staff, volunteers and partner enterprises these young guys had the opportunity to live in a stimulating environment, where they have learn to face the working environment. In this City, the role of the Oliver Twist school is extremely relevant: the school proposes professional training not only through frontal lessons, but also with field projects and internships. The main objective of the school is to build excellences in some of the traditional sectors of the Made in Italy: textile, craftsmanship and hospitality.

"Since the very beginning the method used with our students is to do it for real, to learn by doing. This is true also for the 'Workshop of Wood', whose objective is to introduce young people to the real job world"

Erasmo Figini, Founder of Cometa
