Some words about Molfetta

Associazione InCo has a local office in Molfetta, a community of Apulia. Molfetta has 60.000 inhabitants and its economy is historically based on fishing and agriculture. In the last 20 years an industrial area, still enlarging, has been settled. The climate is generally quite and poor of rain, although the temperature changes are fast and short, due to the wind from the Balkan area. In spite of the fact that our area has good road, railways, air and maritime facilities, and that it has strategic links with the East-Mediterranean and Balkan countries, it is quite distant from the so-called heart of Europe. Molfetta is known in the last years for an important growth in terms of commercial activities and attractions, thanks to the recent creation of a huge commercial area (outlet and shopping mall), provided of shops, national chains, outlet, luna park, hard discount, cinemas and so on. At the same time in the old city town many restaurants, clubs, bars, and youth centres are very crowed during the weekend and in the evening.

During the national/local holidays an important role play the traditions and religious events in the city such as the easter processions, the trade fair in September and the live nativity scenes in Christmass time.

Associazione InCo - Molfetta

It is a no-profit association, born at unformal level in 2013, thanks to a group of members moving to Apulia region after many mobility experiences. The aim of the association is to promote and support mobility abroad, contacts, exchanges and meetings at international level; to promote mutual tolerance and intercultural sensitivity among young people; to support the unformal process of European integration in our community.

Food and accommodation

The volunteers will live either inside:

  • a flat together with 2 volunteers, in the city of Molfetta (double room)
  • or in a flat with other InCo staff in the city of Giovinazzo (single room)

The lodging choice will be always decided by InCo. For both lodging options, volunteers will have to respect the rules of the structure and the environment where they live.

There are possibilities for the volunteers to have their meal at home, which is fully furnished with kitchen. So in this case an additional amount of money will be provided corresponding to 150 euros.
