∙ INTRODUCTION PURPOSES OUR HISTORY OPENING HOURS AND ADMISSION WHERE WE ARE HEADQUARTERS
 

facciataThe Italian Documentation centre on Cooperatives and Social Economy discloses and collects valuable archive documents, bibliographic references, audio-visual materials, as well as oral source materials concerning the origins and the development of the Italian cooperatives movement, in order to promote a larger knowledge and deeper rooting of the principles and values purported by cooperatives throughout their long history.

We feel it necessary to define and reassert the historical identity of cooperatives to be prepared and face the future appropriately, since the connection between the past and the present of cooperatives is the bond between generations.

Present generations pass down to future ones tangible and intangible assets. The latter embrace also cooperation principles and values, a tradition consisting of historical knowledge and awareness. Indeed, as the Legacoop "Charter of Values" recites, "those who have no memory, do not exist". This is why places where history and memory are preserved and made accessible are necessary.
