Senigallia decided to join the Intercultural Cities network because in order to promote multiculturalism through diverse interventions. Thanks to institutions, to voluntary organizations and to private, community-centered organizations, the city has been experiencing new ways of inclusion and integration handling the everyday real life problems. But today this is not enough to build a multi-ethnic society and a more mature civic society. Every day it is more necessary to share values, different ways of life, civic rules among all citizens, both natives and citizens of foreign origin. The issue is very complex because it requires a process and a strong will for a real integration on both sides.
