The Aisla of Bergamo celebrates culture with Sla volunteers and families

Today guided tours of the city. Di Landro: “The objective is to promote the participation of people with illness”

Aisla, the Italian Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Associationon the occasion ofYear of Culture 2023he organized today a guided tour together with the Sla families. The initiative – we read in a note – organized and promoted by Anna of Landro, an active volunteer for over 20 years, saw the participation of numerous families with ALS from Bergamo and Brescia. The guided tour was an opportunity to involve families in spending a special day together, in the name of the common good, accessible culture and inclusion.

The presence of the families arriving from Brescia, in particular, was very significant, as it allowed us to highlight the strength and determination of those who, despite the difficulties, continue to bravely face the fight against ALS. Thanks to Aisla’s commitment – continues the note – the city of Bergamo was the protagonist of a visit that was not only cultural, but also human and emotional, which made it possible to strengthen the bonds between people affected by the disease and their families. She also spoke at the event Marcella Sociali of Messina, Councilor for Politics Bergamowho underlined the importance of involving families and promoting an accessible culture, to ensure greater well-being and social inclusion.

“I am very proud to be part of Aisla – she comments Aisla Bergamo’s contact Anna di Landro – an organization that is committed to raising awareness and research on ALS, a disease that compromises the entire family and for which there is still no cure. Today’s initiative demonstrates our commitment to inclusion and truly access to culture for all.” The aim of the visit is to provide families with the opportunity to spend time together to discover the beauty of the city together and to help create a sense of community among the participants arriving from Bergamo and Brescia. Promoting the inclusion and active participation of people with ALS in culture is not an easy undertaking, but it is a fundamental element for building a more equitable and inclusive society.

The meeting began in Piazza Mercato del Fieno, from where a suggestive walk along Via Corsarola then began. Until the visit of the splendid Piazza Vecchia, with its monuments such as the Duomo, Santa Maria Maggiore and the Baptistery. Here, for those who could, we climbed the Campanone to enjoy a spectacular panorama from above. After a traditional Bergamo lunch in a trattoria, the day ended with a walk on the Sentierone and a coffee break at the bar, where the families greeted each other with the enthusiasm of the day spent together. The initiative was particularly appreciated by the families involved, who had the opportunity to enjoy a carefree day. In this, Anna di Landro is a point of reference for Aisla and the over 100 families forced to live with ALS in the Bergamo area. Today’s is only the first of a long series of initiatives that Aisla Bergamo will organize to promote accessible culture and the inclusion of people with ALS in society.
