Mama Africa Meeting 2014, dedicated to Maurizio Verrieri
Mama Africa dedicates its 9th edition to Maurizio Verrieri, who recently left us. We spent no more than one year with him but over this short time we learned from his support and dedication to the project Mama Africa. He was a visionary, a dreamer. He wanted the "nest" to become a source of wealth for the inhabitants of Villafranca and the surroundings; to host initiatives and help spreading ideas of acceptance and welcoming. A place where children and teenagers could grow, experience, learn and hope. That’s why he asked Arci and Mama Africa to settle here and to create other programs for children and young people. Little by little, with his sons’ and siblings’ help, and the help of the communal administration, we will try to realize his dreams.
