Italiacamp is an impact organisation that combines profit and non-profit to promote social impact projects and develop impact assessments with numerous private and public partners.
The organisation was founded in 2010 as an association of young university students, which in 2012 has been sided by Italiacamp srl a company whose share capital since 2018 includes Poste Italiane, Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane, Invitalia, Rcs Mediagroup, Unipol Gruppo and, as majority shareholder, the Associazione Italiacamp. In 2020, TIM also joined the organisation.
Since its creation, Italiacamp has aimed at generating new social value and scouting for innovation for citizens, territories and communities, working in partnership with companies, institutions, universities and the third sector.
Identification of emerging needs, sustainability, inclusion, and the emergence of innovation are just some of the themes developed during this first decade of activity.
Italiacamp therefore promotes the paradigm at the basis of the impact economy, in order to foster a new approach that considers value both in terms of what emerges from traditional economic and financial reporting and in terms of the intangible — yet real — change that each organisation generates for communities, territories and stakeholders.
“We believe in putting people and their social relations at the centre, in order to generate new value in terms of social and economic impact for communities and territories. Our work pivots on the word together.
We want to connect the most advanced social avant-garde with the most solid managerial and institutional experiences in the country.
Social transformation is our field of play.”
From friendship to civic engagement
In 2009, a group of friends got together with the ‘simple’ idea of reversing the trend in the country. To be, in the words of President Mattarella, “A catalyst for different subjects and experiences.”
Profit and non-profit. Together
An unprecedented governance model, where 49.47% of the shares of Italiacamp s.r.l. are held by Associazione Italiacamp and the remaining part by leading companies on the national industrial scene.
We are always looking for talented people and experts to join our team, to create projects and best practices that can create concrete social innovation in Italy.
Name and logo were born in 2009, both almost by chance. Since then, Italiacamp has never stopped growing, experimenting and evolving. The new visual identity serves to tell this story.
