The “Andare Oltre” Foundation onlus was founded by the will of Dr. Piero Petricca, Orthopedic Surgeon who carried out his institutional activity at public facilities in Lazio for over 30 years, mainly dealing with traumatology.

Since 2000 he has also been involved in volunteering, providing his Orthopedic assistence to children with motor disability and needy people, through humanitarian missions lasting 3-4 weeks each one, carried out in various African countries (Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Madagascar).

With the work of the Foundation intends to consolidate a commitment, guaranteeing a continuous and organic presence of specialized operators who, in addition to the purely medical and surgical aspects, also deal with the ongoing training of local medical and paramedical staff, promoting, at the same time, projects of collaboration for the education of children and young people, to help them improve their social status and their future expectations.


The “Andare Oltre” foundation is a non-political, non-religious, non-governmental organization that looks at the cooperation and growth of developing Countries through health, humanitarian, environmental and social intervention aimed at:

  • supporting local hospitals sending health professionals and appropriate means
  • collaborating in the recovery and adaptation of run-down hospitals
  • improving the preparation of local health personnel through training courses
  • ensuring access to healthcare for the most deprived persons 
  • implementing technical cooperation programmes for environmental rehabilitation, in particular for fighting malaria
  • implementing cooperation programmes for youth literacy
  • implementing cooperation programmes for the recovery and development of the agri-food heritage
  • encouraging individual support activities, promoting the Micro-credit in trade, crafts and agro-pastoral activities
