The Gentlecare training course addressing socio-health operators involved in the CrossCare project will start on the 11th and 18th of April at Odu Koper; a second appointment is foreseen on the 24th and 29th of May. The goal is providing operators with innovative tools to deal with fragile elderly and people suffering from dementia or Alzheimer. For the first time, thanks to the Interreg V-A Italy-Slovenia programme, the Gentlecare methodology – already applied at the nursing homes managed by Itaca – will go beyond boundaries and reach elderly care services in Slovenia.
MODENA. 6 – 8 April 2018. – The X Edition of PLAY Modena, the biggest fair on Italian games, took place in Modena Fiere from the 6th to the 8th of April. Organized in collaboration with Club TreEmme, La Tana dei Goblin and Gilda del Grifone, with the patronage of the Municipality of Modena and University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (UNIMORE), PLAY Modena gave life to the largest playroom ever made in Italy by occupying a space that exceeded 22 thousand square meters (the equivalent of twenty tennis courts!). An extension that was justified by the incredible number of board games, miniatures, live games, video games, traditional games, street games, costumes and cosplayers.

PORTO. 8-9 MARCH 2018. The third transnational meeting of the project Free to Choose took place in Porto on March 8th and 9th.
