Valentina has packed a lot into her young life already – top Economics student, singer/musician, linguist (German, English, Italian Romagnolo), dance teacher, traveler and driver – and although she was born in Germany – she is really a Romagnolo girl from the Valsellustra, just like her Mum.
And now she’s doing the Romagnolo thing with passion – showing off her beautiful land and its wonderful cornucopia of food and wine and, history and beauty. Plus taking even better photographs of her beloved Valsellustra.
The older bit of the partnership – Valere, however, has been consulting and writing reports about sustainable tourism for the last 25 years (since the Earth Summit) with organizations like the UN World Tourism Organisation, the European Union, the World Bank and the UN Environment Programme and writing about it for global media like TravelMole.com. For the 25 years before that, he was a mass tour operator.
And now he’s fallen in Love with Romagna and is putting all his knowledge and resources behind the Best of Romagna project in the knowledge that it has so much to offer both "Temporary Citizens" and local people alike - including a great deal of fun, happiness and life-changing experiences (see above!)
