Lizori is a restored medieval villages, which constitute the first project for a new model for environmental education, aiming to harmonize urbanization and innovation together with civilized human development. This kind of education brings the possibility of mutual help between human beings and the environment, which, in turn, will lead a sustainable future of better life conditions. This model can be used in abandoned areas in developing countries or neglected sites to build educations centres. The main outputs of this project are as follows: 1.To make contact with local people. It is not an external intervention. Rather, the locals develop the resources themselves through their self-sustainable perspective. They will also learn innovative solutions that allow an urbanization project to not only preserve nature, but save it as well. All local people are encouraged to start or complete their studies according to UN SDGs. 2.Provide environmental education (ecobiology).

These centres also serve as cultural and scientific centres for the area. Furthermore, they facilitate the advancement of SDGs and the knowledge of them, organizing seminars, conference, projects to promoting sustainability through education.




Loving Lizori... (Amare Lizori)

The hamlet’s redevelopment was carried-out strictly with private funding. Dozens of private
individuals – united by their enthusiasm and passion – invested their money not only in order
to purchase and refurbish derelict properties for personal use, but also in order to restore all the
public areas so that they could, once again, become available for the community. All this was
achieved without subsidies or sponsors, without any public or third party funding whatsoever.
With absolutely no speculative intent.
“An A for Lizori” is a project fostered by the Scientific and Humanistic Research Foundation
Antonio Meneghetti (a Swiss non-profit foundation) in order to continue the support and care
for the Lizori hamlet.
You’ll be able to get an A with a minimal donation which will help further development of
the Lizori hamlet. All project’s revenues will be used by the Foundation in order to maintain
streets, squares, terracings, facilities and in order to support culture events as well as leisure,
scientific and art activities organized in respect of those humanistic values that gave birth to the
renaissance of this hamlet.
