CAM (Multicultural Aggregation
Centres) are the result of a fusion of past
experiences that have been developed in order to
offer the residents of Milano a range of activities
that are free and open to all citizens, regardless
of sex, race, language or social class.
The first aggregation centres,
called “ Campi Gioco” (Play Areas) were born in
1953. Then their name changed to “Campi Gioco
Robinson” (Robinson’s Play Areas) and later they
became the first eight “Free time centres”
specialised in recreative activities for
marginalised young people.
In 1983 these recreative centres
changed again into CTS – Centri Territoriali Sociali
(Territorial Social Centres).
Today CTSs have been definitively
transformed into CAMs.
The four CAMs in Zone 1 have a
various program of different and interesting
activities for the residents of all ages, thanks
also to the fact that they are located in different
parts of the city centre.
