Independent living path for young people with Down syndrome

(ANSA) – CAMPOBASSO, JAN 24 – The dream has come true and 10 months after the announcement it has been realised.

Children with Down syndrome will live in the ‘House for Tomorrow’, an apartment set up in Campobasso by the Italian Down Syndrome Association (Aipd) thanks to the support of Intesa San Paolo and the Cesvi Foundation.

The inauguration, tomorrow 25 January at 11 in via Roma 52.

With the opening of the door, another phase of the journey of young women and men who have been active for years to gain independence will begin. To turn the key will be Luca Trapanese, city councilor of Naples who travels through Italy telling his story of a single father who in 2018 adopted Alba, a girl with Down syndrome. With him the president of Aipd Molise, Giovanna Grignoli, who for over 20 years has been fighting to improve the quality of life of ‘her’s’ boys. The day will continue with a meeting entitled ‘Our imperfections’, scheduled in the Constitution hall of the Province starting at 15.30. We will talk about the process that leads to becoming adults. Luca Trapanese will tell his story as a father from Alba and the volunteer work he has been doing for years. A commitment that led him to found the association ‘A free wheel’ and to carry out numerous projects related to disability including the family home for children ‘La Casa di Matteo’, unique in southern Italy.
