EoC - Economy of Communion

Welcome to the official EOC website!

Donatella Baldi’s story goes against the flow. She is keen on bees and the EoC. Her company called “Sapori Mediterranei” (“Mediterranean Flavours”) produces the best organic honey in the Province of Pisa.


Sapori Mediterranei 02 prodotti ridHardworking, constant, living united and linked to one another: for Donatella the bees are her true passion. In 1991, when she heard about the revolutionary economic project of the EoC, she started a small enterprise. It was not easy to start the production. Financial difficulties did not allow her to have a stable income, until the right moment came, and Donatella Paolini Baldi was able to go ahead:  ‘The number of families of bees and the amount of honey produced increased,’ she shares, ’so much so that I was able to ask for the VAT, to do various registrations, to constitute a real and true enterprise, to leave my other job and to have a small income as an apiculturist’.

As highlighted by the editorial of Alberto Ferrucci, this issue intends to focus on the "EoC making a public appearance," 23 years after its birth. The Cover story tells the story of sharing talent between two Brazilian entrepreneurs brasilian from the North East and the South of Brazil, which led to the birth of the company Movelite because "Together It Works" and "Communion" are the most important talents of all.

Without EoC businesses there is no future for an economy of communion. It is indeed the companies that have the ability and the tools to help others experience the relationships of reciprocity and fraternity in their environment that are making life better for many. The EoC's peculiarity is that it is working in the field, inside the company itself, but it is also thinking about people who seem distant geographically. It works locally but thinks globally. The EoC companies create a universal communion, each starting from their own business, community and from their own country.


Catholics in Business Wrestle With Pope Francis' Attacks on Capitalism  - 'If the Pope's Message Is Going to Be Effective, It Has to Be Realistic'

By Gregory J. Millman

published in The Wall Street Journal on July 10, 2014 2:26 p.m. ET

Logo WSJVATICAN CITY—Since his election last year, Pope Francis frequently has turned his attention to global business. "The economy can no longer turn to remedies that are a new poison, such as attempting to increase profits by reducing the workforce," he wrote In November.

Such comments, typical of this pope's statements, writings and even tweets, have Catholic executives struggling to remain faithful to their religion and loyal to their stockholders.


Logo AMEC rid modIn the summer of 2014 there are many opportunities to study the topics of the EoC and Civil Economy: two international schools - in Puebla and Paris -, the 3rd EoC Workshop School in Loppiano and the two Schools of Civil Economy in Puglia and Sicily.

23 to 27 July: the 5th Summer School of Civil Economy at the Casa San Paolo in Martina Franca (Taranto), in Italian, entitled: Re-creating the Institutions, the Common Goods and Work.
Objective: to help young people aged 20 to 30 years of diverse backgrounds to become "civil" entrepreneurs, executives or professionals by offering them the vision of togetherness by Civil Economy.
