The Romualdo Del Bianco Foundation

The Foundation was established simultaneously with the fall of the Berlin Wall by the desire to bring young people of Eastern Europe – Eurasia, no longer with the force of a coercive policy, but with the involvement for cultural reasons, inviting them to participate in International working groups in Florence.
Through this activity, which today has extended to no less than 80 countries in all 5 continents, the Foundation created the orientation Life Beyond Tourism, to provide a virtual platform to the understanding between cultures based on key elements such as: Travel, Youth, Interculturalism, Cultural Heritage, Dialogue, Knowledge and Respect.
