Located in Como, Cometa is an organization founded in 2000 as a network of foster families and has now developed into a broad organisation offering support and a wide range of social, health, and education services to children, their natural families, and foster families. Under the umbrella of Cometa Fondazione, two main entities are actively involved in the project and activities with young students. One is "Il Manto Cooperativa Sociale", which was created in 2005 to respond to the needs of minors in hardship and at risk of marginalization and school dropout through creating a place of welcome and education for children and their families. The other is Cometa Formazione SCS, which was founded in 2003 to give a concrete opportunity to children who dropped out of school without any job prospects. Cometa's educational offer is conceived as a path that focuses on the enhancement of work and direct experience ("from doing to knowing) and is developed from the perspective of personal and professional orientation and re-motivation.​
