Evolution of the ecclesiastical, religious and non-profit worlds: opportunities, problems and prospects
The Cattolica Assicurazioni workshop to promote and study the entities to which the Group is historically and culturally linked
The aim of the workshop organised by the Religious and Non-Profit Business Unit of Cattolica, which took place on February 12 in the CEI Auditorium in Rome, was to promote an ever greater knowledge of the world of religious bodies, of Catholic associations and the non-profit sector (voluntary organisations, social cooperatives, social promotion associations, etc.). This for the purpose of developing an increasingly accurate and competent relational approach with the entities to which our Group is historically and culturally linked.
In his opening address, the President of Cattolica, Paolo Bedoni, said that "a path was started that in the coming months will lead us to providing a new, strong development for our presence in the world of religious bodies, Catholic associations and voluntary organisations".
The Managing Director, Giovan Battista Mazzucchelli, then spoke, stressing that, "with this workshop we are beginning a journey that is above all challenging for us because the choice to create a business unit dedicated to religious and non-profit organisations is the fruit of the awareness that we must take a qualitative leap in working out our insurance proposal".
The works continued with the participation of Monsignor Giuseppe Baturi, undersecretary of CEI, who, in speaking about the Dioceses and Parishes, addressed the crucial issue of the structure and function of the Church in Italy. A more juridical and administrative profile characterised the report of the Director of the Legal Office of the Vicariate of Rome, Monsignor Andrea Celli. Roberto Museo, Director of the National Coordination of Service Centres for Volunteering, adjourned the morning session.
In the afternoon session, Professor Vincenzo Buonomo, Professor of International Law at the Pontifical Lateran University, spoke about the international dimensions and the effects on the Italian Church on the role of the Holy See and the Vatican.
At the end of the day, Paolo Ristori from the Religious and Non-Profit Business Unit presented the new product Cattolica & Secular-Parish Clergy.
