Cefla’s oldest established Business Unit is looking towards the future of the local community – Cefla Plant Solutions is in fact making a local contribution with the “Parco Primo Sport 0246” project which will be inaugurated in San Lazzaro di Savena, near Bologna, in September with the Olympic fencing champion Valentina Vezzali, as an outstanding sponsor.
The project, drawn up by the University of Verona and based on an idea of the Laboratorio 0246 association, which is led by the six-times Olympic champion, involves the construction of Italy’s third park of its kind, following those created in Treviso and Rome. The parks have been designed specifically to develop the most important initial skills for young children: mobility, manual skills, balance and symbolic play.
“Cefla is celebrating its 85th anniversary and over these years the company has grown and evolved, investing in the future and in the new generations,” explains Roberto Cocchi, head of Cefla Plant Solutions, who has believed in the “Parco Giochi Primo Sport 0246” project right from the start, “maintaining strong links with the local area and working to assist in the social growth of the community. With this idea we, as a Business Unit, have decided to give our support to this innovative project which will allows families to experience the first years of their children’s lives in a constructive and socialising manner. The park will provide an area designed specifically for young children, in which everyone can move around and play in safety and while learning.”
The playground will be equipped with lighting and video-surveillance and it will be open to school groups, families and individuals without any time restrictions. Birthday parties can be hosted and there will be areas where mothers can feed their children in tranquility.
