The project The Thin Cities, promoted by Municipality of Pisa, started in 2002 and finished  in 2007. It concerns various sectors (housing, employment, school integration, health) and aims at improving the independence of the target groups through accompanying activities. Thanks to this project, 47 Roma found an accommodation in low rent public housing, 25 bought their own apartments through bank mortgages, about 240 live on rent thanks to contracts guaranteed by social cooperatives. A village for 70 people is going to be built.
