The Small Cooperative Society “Cuccureddus”
if it was born very recently, the cooperative is composed
of very experienced members in the Arts field. Not only the
members have a humanistic cultural background, but they are
also specialised in this sector: cultural tour operators,
exhibition rooms staff, network operators, teachers. Besides,
the cooperative makes use of the help of experts: historians,
archaeologists, documentalists, graphic designers, experts
The cooperative also makes use of an external scientific
manager, very experienced in the Arts field. The President
of the cooperative is Mr Giuseppe di Caro.
For two years before the setting up of the cooperative, the
members worked for the Commune of Villasimius in the culture
sector: they ran the Public Library, the Municipal Archives,
the Tourist Office, the temporary exhibitions, the season
of shows. The experience and professionalism of those years
has given to the cooperative the ability to run the above
activities and structures starting from January 1, 2001.
Moreover the cooperative carries out side initiatives such
as, for example, professional training courses, cultural
itineraries, archaeological journeys, educational projects,
production of promotional material and web sites. At the
moment the cooperative runs the cultural services in Villasimius.
As it is important to update ones own training, the members
of the cooperative are attending a second-level course of
English and one of German. They also make a periodical training
in museums, archaeological settlements, exhibitions, cultural
structures. Apart from the members and the science manager,
the cooperative also employs about four or five groups of
people: guardians, maintenance men, tourist collaborators,
exhibition room staff, computer scientists.
