The “I Banchetti della Solidarietà” (solidarity stalls) initiative was created to involve and motivate staff who are members of and volunteers with non-profit organisations and associations, hosting charity stalls inside company premises.

People Caring has made an institutional space inside Group company premises available to members of staff where they can promote charity sales of products to raise funds for the organisation's projects. This initiative has also been opened to "external" associations of national importance or recognised social impact.

Moreover, the Telecom Italia Group staff members have a page, which can be found in the People Caring "Bacheca" (noticeboard), where they can describe their initiatives, enter details of charity events and rallies, update requests for support, exchange comments and publish photos, announcements and stories.

The first edition of the Banchetti della Solidarietà was organised at Christmas 2008 as a Christmas initiative, and involved 40 organisations, 22 Telecom Italia sites in eight cities for a total of 82 stalls.  From 2009 the initiative spread to cover the whole year, with growing numbers of participating associations and staff member approval, During 2015 we were organized over 200 stalls of NGO presentation.
