Pro.tetto is a project aimed at providing emergency bad weather protection for those homeless people who sleep rough at night, in the streets and in public urban spaces. Supplied at the beginning of the winter season as part of the standard equipment by mobile street assistance units, it is designed to provide immediate relief to those who are most marginalized and who often do not accept bed space provided by Public Authorities and voluntary associations, and who therefore run the risk of freezing to death during the coldest nights of the year. Pro.tetto is not intended to be a dwelling, tent or sleeping bag, but an economic and disposable emergency shelter (with approximately three nights lifespan) that is lightweight, inexpensive and easy to handle. The kit consists of a bag containing an insulated mat and an inflatable high insulation metallized PET emergency shelter, with pump for inflating provided, and able to heat up inside using only body heat. The choice of materials and characteristics of all the elements aims to optimize production, storage and distribution: the whole kit is designed to weigh 270 g, take up the space of a T-shirt when closed and have a production cost of €3.
