Our History

Since 1975 we believe that travelling is a vehicle of new experiences that profoundly change the individuals who experience it. This is precisely the reason why:

  • since 1991, with the initiatives “Be Part of History” and “Art in our Heart”, we have been supporting the local Cultural Heritage and restored more than 20 works;
  • we have established the Romualdo Del Bianco Foundation® as a centre of studies and research on the themes of intercultural dialogue and travel;
  • we have developed the Life Beyond Tourism® orientation, turning our congress centre, “Centro Congressi al Duomo”, into the first venue of its practical application, certified since 2008;
  • we have implemented the Certification for Intercultural Dialogue – Life Beyond Tourism® (DTC-LBT: 2018).

Our mission is to provide all travellers the tools to write an important chapter of the story of their own life. 
To turn a simple stay into a unique and unforgettable adventure through projects that we have designed exclusively for you, routes, events, and initiatives, every time will be like the first.

Our motto is: “Not tourists but travellers!”
