Adds Paolo Del Bianco, president emeritus of the Romualdo Del Bianco Foundation : "I can only retrace, with satisfaction and gratitude, the participatory contribution that since its inception the Romualdo Del Bianco Foundation has received from university professors and students, public administrators locals, women and men of culture from numerous cities and institutions in the Czech Republic. All of them were an active and creative part of building the first solid foundation on which the Life Beyond Tourism - Travel to Dialogue Movement aimed at promoting 'meeting, mutual knowledge, respect and therefore the creation of cultural bridges for education in dialogue and friendship. Our heartfelt appreciation goes to them for this creative and fertile collaboration strongly oriented towards bringing human beings ever closer to each other, for peace in the world ”.
Carlotta Del Bianco, president of the Life Beyond Tourism-Travel to Dialogue Movement concludes: “We are particularly pleased that the Czech Republic, which has always been an important partner of our movement, is the first foreign country of the Speaking Places® project . The 14 territories will in fact be enhanced thanks to an innovative method, linked to NFC technology . The pandemic has prompted us to rethink the ways and objectives of the journey. In this difficult period made up of uncertainties, fears and deprivation of one's freedoms, travel can really become a strong reaction aimed at rediscovering the sense of one's individuality, an intimate way to savor what we lived before the pandemic. Traveling consciously, in fact, is the most beautiful image of the sense of freedom in contrast to all that is routine and conformity. Our true individual values are rediscovered and then come into contact with those of others, also expressions of different places, cultures and traditions, not only national but also international ".
