Chirom e chino about star


The association chirom e… chino has been working in Scampia, in a quarter of Naples for almost a decade. This territory is shared by Italian citizens and Roma communities from ex-Yugoslavia who migrated there as refugees of the war and live in deeply derogative conditions.

About The Project

The association’s mission is to implement actions with the objective of social empowerment and intercultural collaboration for the whole community and create dynamic intercultural processes.

The project aims to foster intercultural understanding by forming a mixed group of Roman and Italian women. Creating a space for opportunities and collaboration in order to share cultural experiences through cooking and by establishing a social enterprise to create a possibility for economical development. Cookery is a common language and a powerful “space” of encounter and provides the chance to improve their lives in multiple aspects.
