Athos Faccincani was born in Peschiera del Garda on January 29, 1951.
In 1963-64, when Athos was 13, he attended the studio of Maestro Pio Semighini; and then soon after, attended technical schools, where his interest continued to grow. Between 1967-69, he attended the Venetian studios of Novati, Gamba and Seibezzi. In Brescia, in that same period, he met Ottorino Garosio and Angelo Fiessi.
In 1970, after completing his studies, the young Athos, filled with enthusiasm, dedicated himself to horseback riding and painting, with help from his friend Nantas Salvalaggio.
In those years, his power of observation, disenchanted, placed him face to face with his first painful impact with social reality and its problems. He learned that life is also made up of alienation, pain, prisons and corruption. He felt a strong urge to personally live up to his civil commitment and became a champion for the disabled, the poor and the assisted.
His paintings, which are artistically addressed to the enigma of human feelings, its dramas and contradictions, take on colors that symbolize melancholy and sufferance in his representation of human figures.
HelPeople was formed in 1991 to provide material assistance to children and teenagers in difficulty, to alleviate discomfort, and to become a strong point of reference in a degraded structural reality.
The core values that make up the mission and the cultural heritage of the foundation are the promotion of the person, the quality of life, and the general interest of the community in human promotion and the social integration of citizens.
We promote and strengthen the social change routes in the countries in which we operate, with particular attention to sustainable development, social inclusion and combating poverty.
We support the efforts of communities, organizations and local institutions aimed at identifying and implementing intervention programs. We are engaged in research and report the causes of injustice and marginalization to develop appropriate intervention proposals. We value and consider essential the contribution of different cultures in the development of intervention programs in the settlement of disputes and in building just and peaceful societies. We carry out our programs in collaboration with the Italian company, involving public and private figures, local and national in supporting their implementation.
We do not pursue profit, and we are independent from political parties, local, national and international, churches or religious entities, foundations or private companies.
We act in full transparency, sharing with donors, partners and beneficiaries all phases, from planning to evaluation, and sharing our annual reports and budgets.
