Management

Michele Ridolfo CEO and Co-Founder


Esperienza più bella: Magenta (Milano) - Bicycling with my family between the Navigli and Ticino river, living with local farmers in the old "cascine", as if 1000 km far from the city.

Marco Schiavi Commercial OTA and Operations Director


Esperienza più bella: Oltrepò Pavese (Lombardy) - Leaving the plain behind, climbing the hills of the Upper Oltrepò Pavese. Taking a break in the agritourisms and trattorias until they feel a little like at home, or perhaps better, right at own home.

Karin Venneri Strategy & Sales Director


Esperienza più bella: La Sila (Calabria) - Crossing the Sila park during the broom period, by car with the whole family. Stopping for a long walk among the centuries-old giants of Sila, pristine lakes and plateaus. Not to be missed, a "typical paninazzo", caciocavallo, sausage and macked potatoes and a good red wine. Absolutely Priceless.

Antonio Rainò Head of Marketing


Esperienza più bella: Central Italy - Coast to coast from Ravenna to Livorno on a Vespa Sprint from 1967. Long stops every 50 km to admire the landscapes, to enjoy the local food and, above all, to give the Vespa a break. Traveling slowly on the main roads is the best way to cherish the Appennino and many others Italy’s areas
