    Strong political and administrative commitment

    Which I decided to adopt as a result of the increasing demands for study places from young students, especially university students, in our city, also due to the restrictive conditions and the share of places imposed by the Covid-19 epidemic at the time. The measure received unanimously in the City Council – continues – and which today, after months of work and site inspections carried out with the distinguished staff of Portoliana and with representatives of the University, makes it possible to expand the services and spaces provided to the Vicenza fabric of students, demonstrating that attention to the needs of Youth is possible and should be.

Moreau liked to say that politics is above all “listening and patience”: I am convinced of this that, after building a good course of listening and discussion, we were able to formulate a clear response to the needs of the students and lay more solid foundations for the university. development of our city.

    La Pertoliana has been questioning herself for several years

    Towards which idea and which model of the library should we evolve – stated the head of the Bertoliana Library -. Among the responses that are implemented on the basis of it is the promotion of open services for citizens, and keeping pace with the cultural and generational shifts of the city. Helping this is the redevelopment that we carry out of its dimensions as a real physical place, spaces available to people, and thus also the promotion of new community relations. We do this in decentralized offices but above all in the offices of the historic center, where we have focused on offering new realities, including children and adolescents, those spaces and those opportunities that their generation requires: places of gathering, interaction with training and leisure to meet their multifunctional and multimedia needs.

    He finally got involved Rearrangement of the children’s and adolescent rooms of the Public Library on the first floor of the Palazzo.

    Friends of Bertoliana –

    The President of the Society announces – They enthusiastically accepted the invitation to raise funds to build rooms for the very young users of the Library.

    We immediately believed in this project because we saw for ourselves that the old rooms for children were unattractive and not quite in keeping with the times. The young users of these new rooms will be the users of tomorrow and it’s good if they immediately start visiting Bertoliana’s buildings in a fun but constructive way. Moreover – he continues – we have heard the voices of many mothers who have complained that the historic center of the city offers few spaces for children and demanded that something be set aside for the age group under 14 years.

    The Amici della Bertoliana is therefore on the side of managing the library not only for the restoration of ancient books and manuscripts, but also for those initiatives that go beyond its strict planning, but are very useful to the citizens and users of the buildings in exchange for the “Riale”.

    On this occasion, the Bertoliana Library has made an additional investment, also providing for Rearrangement of some children’s areas in all five provincial offices: Anconetta, Laghetto, Riviera Berica, Villaggio del Sole and Villa Tacchi.

    For central offices and branches, the total cost of furnishing interventions amounted to 102 thousand euros.
