Agape International Ecumenical Center
Be a meeting place; be and live together in an inclusive and sustainable way.
Agape was built after the Second World War in 1951 as a sign of hope and of reconciliation between people, thanks to the voluntary labour of many young men and women. Agape is an ambitious project that was born halfway through the last century from the ideasof a Waldensian pastor, Tullio Vinay. A resident group still lives at Agape throughout the year and the dimensions of community and voluntary service remain central. The name Agape indicates the love of God for humankind that "never fails" (1 Corinthians, 13). Agape expresses a strong lay spirituality, where believers and non-believers feel equally at home.
