Pathway with local admnistrators


With this pathway, we propose a place for local administrators and those who are personally engaged in the political arena to discuss and listen to each other.

We want to build together opportunities for deepening, discerning the present in the light of faith, and caring for spirituality.

It is also, a chance to get to know each other, open new mutual collaborations and be in deeper relationship with the local area.

Target audience

Administrators and politicians in the Varese area. Those engaged in political activities or former administrators are also invited.
