Civil service

From 2021 it is possible for young people from 18 to 28 years of age to perform civil service at the Abbey of Maguzzano within the project “ValorizziamoCi” (“Let us value ourselves”) of the Opera don Calabria.

The objectives and goals that this project aims to achieve are:


  1. To promote the cultural heritage and the spread of the values of peace, human rights and non-violence through the beauty, comfort and refreshment of the place.
  2. To favour the access and active participation of the indicated recipients at the sites of implementation of the individual project actions;
  3. To encourage the dissemination of culture and socially shared values through actions of socialisation, inclusion and active citizenship in the local communities concerned;
  4. To strengthen the network of public and private territorial services addressed to citizens.For more information about the project and the civil service in the abbey, please visit:
