We are a cooperative of professionals who have been working in the field of music, art, entertainment, tourism, culture and creativity for over thirty years. We offer services designed ad hoc to meet the needs of our clients and we ensure that each activity is carried out by experienced professionals: the advantage of joining a cooperative, such as Doc Servizi, is that each professional gets the benefits typical of employment but maintains the autonomy of self-employment: all professionals are protected and interconnected to multiply opportunities and competitiveness and to encourage the meeting between people.
In Bologna, along with Tania Truppo, the branch manager, and myself, Roberto Calari, who is a board member with responsibility for the metropolitan area of Bologna, there are many other figures who give life to the many projects in the Bologna area to which Rete Doc is committed. The most recent ones? The restart of the Future Film Festival, which also involved DumBO, the ARVR Summit, and in a few months the second edition of Booming, Contemporary Art Show, and much more…
We have always stood for legality and safety in the workplace, as well as supporting the rights of every employee. Moreover, passion, sharing, knowledge and transparency are important to work at best in a cooperative: it is important for us to support each other and that there is a continuous exchange of ideas and services that allows us to grow not only professionally.
Doc Servizi was born in the 1990s out of the need to fill the regulatory gap and the difficulties in applying the social security system in the world of music and entertainment. The initial goal was to give artists the opportunity to have access to social rights and to try to stop illegal work in the music and cultural sector.
As it grew, the cooperative expanded its boundaries (Doc Servizi Bologna is just one of the 33 national branches of the Doc Network) and began to guarantee protections and benefits to all professionals working in the creative world: from the world of entertainment to the creative industry, from the world of digital to that of teaching.
Developing synergies is key for us, and DumBO is the perfect place! Working in a co-working space, thanks to the presence of other creative realities, allows us to experience a stimulating context and consequently work at our best. We are open and happy to have an exchange of ideas with other realities and maybe create collaborations with those who share our same values.
But in DumBO we share a vision that looks ahead, working to make this space one of the most important creative districts in Europe and internationally, opening up to new connections and contamination of experiences and languages, creating new spaces for the production and residence of young creatives.
Definitely, The Show Must Go On by Queen! A hymn of the possible and the future in which to believe in such a dramatic moment for the whole of humanity between pandemics and environmental catastrophes. A hymn to believe that culture and creativity will continue to go on despite the difficulties and that education to culture is and will be the beacon of a new renaissance.
“But my smile lingers – the lyrics of the song say- my soul has the colours of butterfly wings. Yesterday’s fairy tales will grow bigger but never die. I can fly, my friends. The show must go on. The show must go on I’ll face it with a smile. I will never give up. On with the show”.
