The Italian Embassy at the Holy See hosted the presentation of “Wonders. Scopri l’Italia delle meraviglie” (Wonders. Discover marvellous Italy), a new initiative by the Autostrade per l’Italia motorway network that will help motorway travellers rediscover the cultural, naturalistic and food and wine heritage of our country. This multi-channel platform gathers contributions from partners like the Italian National Commission for UNESCO, Touring Club Italiano, WWF and Slow Food Italia.
Ambassador Francesco Di Nitto conveyed the official greetings at the presentation of the initiative. Attendees included Minister for Culture Dario Franceschini and Chief Executive Officer of Autostrade per l’Italia Roberto Tomasi.
“Wonders” also aims to create a community where tales and traveller experiences can be shared. Users can use the large database (cultural, naturalistic and food and wine websites) containing hundreds of experiences connected by the motorway system to personalise the information according to the trips they intend to take and what they want to do.
