Incontro Romano
This website is dedicated to Incontro Romano Philippines.

Unlocking the "feminine genius": an annual Rome gathering to discuss issues related to WOMAN, WORK IN THE HOME, and FAMILY.


A home always presupposes a lot of art, and this is a function not of the number of frames/ paintings adorning the walls or the colors of curtains decorating the living room.  Thus was the understanding of the 2007 theme by the young participants of the Incontro Romano, which took place on April 5, 2007 in the morning, at the Auditorium of ICEF. The oral presentations and projects carried out during the whole year were inspired by the theme: Living the Family: The Art of Making the House a Home.  The goal at which the students and service professionals aimed is a huge challenge: improving society, promoting the dignity of the service professions, and pointing out the distinctive characteristics that the woman contributes in this field. 

  • WOMAN - femininity; elegance; womanhood; homemaking; modesty; child-rearing.
  • WORK IN THE HOME - the nature of house chores and the skills they require; the professional competence that these tasks entail; the important consequences this work has both on the personal and the social level.
  • FAMILY - the primordial harmony of family members; reflecting the beauty of sharing the same profound objectives along with the endeavour and tension to attain them.

v    In Rome, the Institution that organizes the Congress is called SAFI (Scuole e Attività Formative Internazionali) (International School for Formative Activities).  You may visit their website at:  SAFI, in turn, was created by the Association Centro ELIS (Educazione, Lavoro, Istruzione, Sport) which was inaugurated in 1965.  

v    The activities carried out in collaboration with various organizations in developing countries have led Centro ELIS to promote a cultural and educational initiative encouraging the interchange of experiences relating to the promotion of the role of woman in various NGOs in all five continents.  Since 1991, Incontro Romano has seen the participation of thousands of students and professionals in the service sector —medical and nursing professions, hotel & restaurant & tourism sectors, education, domestic work, etc.— from all corners of the world.  The delegates discuss very important topics, take part in conferences and present their various projects with the aim of promoting the growth of the individual, under his/her various aspects, in the various social and professional sectors.  The objective of the participants’ work has always been linked to the need of going deeper into and sharing personal experiences related to the role of the woman in society and the promotion of her “feminine genius”.
