“The world needs people who would fight for peace with the same intensity as others fight for war”

M.K. Gandhi

“We believe it is important to have a place in Milan open to everyone, which would be a permanent and visible point of reference in the fields of non-violence, anti-militarism, and interculturality. Such place for us is Casa per la Pace”.[ from “Carta della Casa per la Pace”]

Since 2001 Casa per la Pace has been working on non-violence, disarmament, human rights, intercultural, positive management of conflicts and social justice. This would not be possible without the commitment of volunteers who, day by day, carry out concrete projects so that the dream of a different world could be realized.
