ITINERA EMILIA APS is a cultural association founded by Daniela Lanfredi and Elisabetta Ivaldi, licensed tourist guides for the Emilia Romagna Region. A reality that collects the work legacy and the many years of experience of Itinera Emilia Cooperative and expands its operational capabilities and multidisciplinary skills at the service of tourism, equipping it with new professionalism and ancillary services.

A transformation intended to guarantee a broad spectrum promotion of the territory which, starting from the organization of guided tours, provides real inclusive experiences in order to spread and preserve the culture and popular traditions of Emilia Romagna in general and of Parma and the Province in particular. Operating both in the design and implementation of personalized itineraries, and in the design and implementation of integrated services related to cultural and tourist offer.

We have also included the naturalistic side as many of our guides are also qualified to accompany excursions (G.A.E.). In our proposals you will find the dedicated section in Outdoor experiences with proposals suitable for everyone.

We are Tourist Guides "by passion" and "with passion", ambassadors of the territory and culture who, with their constant presence, carry out functions of promotion, protection and protection of the common heritage.

Other tourist guides licensed in the Emilia Romagna area are collaborating with the founding members: Cristiana Capelli, Elena Ravazzi Asada and Monica Vanin.

Itinera APS also has in its staff professional figures with different skills in the artistic field related to art, music, theater and able to enrich the range of proposals offered: Giacomo Bertolini, Claudio Javier Pollachini and Ilaria Zani.

The Association has always been particularly sensitive in offering accessible visits also to people with disabilities, as well as visits for children who need specific language and tools.

All this is Itinera Emilia APS. An important mission that is for us the great challenge to be developed starting from 2021.
