The “Comunità Nuova” Consortium was constituted on May 14, 2003 on the initiative of three social cooperatives born as spin-offs of the Cooperative “Solidal Development”. The Consortium is in line with the principles of prevailing mutuality and excludes any profit and speculative purpose. In pursuit of its aims, inspired by the principles of solidarity, it promotes and stimulates the confrontation and collaboration between the participating cooperatives and other social realities, also through the management of global development projects. It also provides technical, administrative, legal, organizational, design, accounting, labor, tax, social and other assistance services, including financial support to associated cooperatives to improve their operational effectiveness against public and private entities.
