In addition, the shortage of medical-rehabilitative devices and supports keep more difficulties for the re-introduction in the society, amplifying the gap which separe them from a three-square and a respectable condition.

The association and onlus "Terre Solidali" (website) has launched in 2011 this project of Theatrical Physiotherapy (the project), mixing physical-rehabilitative aspects with contents of incentive to social and human opening in order to push these 100 children involved to continue believing in themselves to occupy a live and creative position in the society.
