GLOCAL FACTORY is a non–profit association, legally established in Italy, that joins volunteers and professionals working in the social and educational fields.
It is inspired to the values of democracy and social solidarity that are the basis of the Constitution of the Italian Republic and of the European Union Treaties.
It co-operates with schools, universities, vocational training centers, local institutions and other associations.
Glocal Factory’s activity is developed along three strands:
Lay–out and implementation of projects in the social and educational fields, granted by the European Union or by other public and private institutions; for the years 2017 and 2018, our priorities are on the one side the social inclusion of migrants, refugees and asylum – seekers; on the other side the prevention and fight against the violence that affects women;
- Design and realization of learning paths, modules and resources, including the international courses for teachers granted by the EU Programme “Erasmus Plus – Key Action 1”;
- Local events to promote citizens’ participation and debate on European society actuality and future.
The birth and first two years of Glocal Factory’s life have been determined in great part by the commitment and creativity of Roberta Morosillo. Graduated in political sciences, with the first experience in cooperation in Morocco, she has become one of the best project manager in the field of development education.
Unfortunately, on February 8th 2017 Roberta suffered from a serious brain injury due to an aneurysm. Nowadays, our colleague and co-founder is undergoing a rehabilitation period in a specialised Austria centre. Every day our thoughts and best wishes accompany her recovery.
Who would like to contribute in supporting the heavy financial burden of the rehabilitating care services can transfer any sum to the crowdfunding campaign.
Members of the Association Board:
I have a University degree in Political Sciences, International Studies. When I was younger, I worked as a trade union officer, then as a president of the socio-cultural association “ARCI” in Verona and as a journalist. From twenty years I write European projects in the field of school, vocational training, social inclusion, education to human rights and sustainable development. Many times I am in charge of the coordination of such projects, or anyway I must give a contribution to their implementation. For this I co-operate with schools, universities, local institutions, associations, NGOs. I am a trainer too, and in particular I am professor of Techniques of Euro-projecting at the Venice International University.
Three words that inspire me: analysis, path, community
Over 20 years of international experience in training adults and young people, in facilitating groups, in consulting working teams, supporting entrepreneurship. With a relevant social work background (on an academic and professional level) and, recently with tourism expertise (via business action), he’s a free-lancer active in European project consulting, design, management, and evaluation. Born in Germany, raised in his home country Italy, living in Greece, he speaks all the correlated languages, plus English of course!
Three words that inspire me: networking, trustworthiness, social innovation
The experiences I have had as a young person in the world of association and volunteering led me to the studies in Education Sciences. I had the opportunity to spend and improve my skills mainly in non-formal education, working with people in a high risk of social exclusion and marginality, disability and school. I believe that getting in contact with the Other, especially if so different from me, is an indispensable opportunity of growth, enrichment and understanding of reality.
Three words that inspire me: empathy , sharing, inclusion
Alessandranna Nocella – secretary
Graduated in foreign-language study oriented for business management, I have developed other skills especially in institutional communication and in drafting parliamentary acts. Thanks to my commitment to civic activism, I have had the chance to experience institutional mechanisms and thus understand the dynamics of social and cultural problems in both the local and national spheres. Equally important was gaining experience in editing and drafting for online content and press releases. I also managed a project of cultural enhancement of teachers certified by MIUR, organizing two editions of a training course on little known local cultural assets held in my native land, Agro Pontino, plain south of Lazio. I also deal with social media, SEO and new technologies. In leisure time, I enjoy cooking to experience a cuisine that marries tradition and healthy eating.

Anna Schena (Verona)
Recent Philosophy graduate at University of Verona, I live now in this beautiful city but I’m still exploring the roads of the world. I made many different jobs and activities: video maker, waitress, teacher, worker, boy scout and sportswoman. The common theme is my love for cultural activities engaging in local and global communities and the commitment for real inclusion of minorities. These took me to Glocal Factory with which I share ideas and projects and start this new travel!
Three words that inspire me: amazement, involvement, beauty
