Also this year, and it was the fourth consecutive time, has had a full success the inclusive tourism project called a summer at the sea and intended for people with disabilities or with fragility by the social cooperative Il Piccolo Principe di Casarsa della Delizia (Pordenone), in partnership with social cooperatives and Social Services of its territory. All this, this time, with an undoubted added value, in particular that of reversing the trend of isolation and the great emotional fatigue caused by the restrictions and the persistence of the pandemic.
A moment of true regeneration, then, became a reality for eleven people, divided into two distinct groups (one with people with disabilities, middle, serious, the other with the fragility of the media, together with educators and volunteers), who in the first decade of September to have stayed at the Bella Italia Village of Lignano Sabbiadoro (Udine), thanks to the financial support of the Foundation BCC Pordenonese.

“This type of experience – highlights Stefania Pavan, head of the Centre for Socio-Occupational The Little Prince of Casarsa della Delizia – represents an important opportunity to local knowledge, social inclusion and personal growth, but also and above all an opportunity to be part of a group, and experiment in the natural setting of the marine environment is the perfect backdrop for the interpersonal relationships that are relevant and long-lasting”.

In detail, the stay in Lignano Sabbiadoro has provided moments of relaxation by the sea, walks on the beach, a trip to the Zoo Park of Lignano and, for the second group, also rides on the bike until you reach the lighthouse of Bibione (Venice), using the step boat and a lot of sports (canoeing, pedal boating, soccer games and volleyball).
“A very important experience – adds Pavan-that is to live together around the clock, also because for someone it was the first time away from home ever and the first time at the sea. In this regard it was nice to see how bonds were created and how the sea on someone had a relaxing power”. (S. B.)
