What We Do
The Italian Down’s syndrome Association was founded in Pisa in 1988. The association is a point of reference for families and social, health and educational operators for issues regarding Down’s syndrome.
Its aim is to protect the rights of people with Down’s syndrome, to promote their full physical and mental development, to contribute to their scholastic and social integration, to raise awareness about their real abilities, and to spread knowledge about the syndrome.
The Fondazione Toscana “Gabriele Monasterio” (Monasterio), is a public body set up by the Italian National Research Council and the Tuscan regional administration and which works alongside the health system in Tuscany in terms of specialized clinical activities, innovation and research and training.
SoleTerre is a non-profit foundation that works for the recognition and application of the right to health in its broadest sense.
In addition to providing medical care and assistance, SoleTerre is committed to safeguarding and promoting psycho-physical well-being for all and everyone, both individually and collectively, at any age and in every part of the world.
The prevention, the denunciation and the contrast of inequalities and violence, whatever the cause that generates it, are an integral part of Soleterre’s activity: because health is social justice.
The Department of Diagnostic and Experimental Specialized Medicine of the University of Bologna (DIMES), born from the merger of numerous departments in the biomedical and clinical area, carries out research, training and assistance in both hospital and university areas.
DIMES favors the integration and cooperation between the different research groups coming from the Departments, helping to identify and develop common themes of particular scientific relevance.
The Ada Manes Foundation for Children was set up Pescara in 2015. The aim is to reduce suffering in children and adolescents, particularly those from low and medium income countries, through social-health interventions, with a focus on congenital and acquired pediatric diseases for which the only therapy is surgery.
Once activated, these new partnerships and related activities will be published on this site.
This will be done clearly and transparently, following the principle “first do it, then talk about it”.
A few steps at a time, but always trying to do them in the best way possible.
