Onlus Franza-Matacena

You are here

No man is an island
entire of itself;
every man is a piece of the continent,
a part of the main.
if a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less,
as well as if a promontory were,
as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were;
any man's death diminishes me,
because I am involved in mankind;
and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
it tolls for thee.

John Donne


The Onlus Franza-Matacena ( is a non-profit organisation born from the initiative of the two families who found and own the Group, with the aim of promoting projects and interventions that support the territory, on which the company has been working with great passion and dedication for over 50 years.

Each day, the activities of the Onlus revamp the vision and commitment of our society, always attentive to the societal repercussions on the territory and the needs of those who live and work in this area.

The focus of the operations chosen for the year 2016/2017 is occupation, understood as creating job opportunities, with highly valued projects being overseen by a high-profile, technical-scientific committee.

Concrete designs and operations combined with passion and consistency: these are the words that best represent us and that have always guided our commitment. With great attention to the many criticalities of our territory, we strive to stimulate and promote determined actions able to have a positive impact at a community level.

Our non-profit organisation proceeds in the conviction that we can all do something to make a contribution to the development and growth of society.
