WHAT WE DO
The Social Cooperative is involved with the work placement of people under criminal judgment, promoting their training and involvement in work activity characterized by handicraft and services.
The work activities started based on the spacial characteristics of the locations where they were placed, paying special attention to the surrounding territory: the city of Venice.
Currently the Cooperative manages three labs (a silkscreen lab, a lab for recycled-PVC accessories, and a cosmetics lab), an organic produce garden and three workplaces outside of the prisons (cleaning streets and public areas, the production of bags and accessories, and salespoints for artisanal products).
The products from this handicraft work are sold through retail outlets as well as public and private commissions.

The cooperative uses PVC materials to make its models while respecting the environment and guaranteeing an object that is coherent with ethical and eco-sustainability chains.
Our brand “Rio Terà dei Pensieri” offers a line of traditional products such as soaps and smelling salts, a natural line and a certified-organic line.
We print on fabric for personalized clothing items, and courtesy accessories and gadgets, with services that are adaptable to any specific demands the customer may have.
ORGANIC PRODUCE GARDEN
We work six thousand square meters of terrain, using organic agricultural methods, where we obtain seasonal vegetables and many of the essences used in our cosmetics lab.
