The Foundation was born with the fall of the Berlin Wall with the desire to bring closer young people from the Countries of Eastern Europe – Eurasia, no longer with the force of a coercive policy, but with their involvement for cultural reasons, inviting them to Florence as part of international working groups.
With this activity, extended today to 83 countries on 5 continents, the Foundation conceived the ethos Life Beyond Tourism, in order to offer a virtual platform for the mutual knowledge among cultures based on the fundamental elements such as: Travel, Youth, Interculturality, Cultural Heritage, Dialogue, Knowledge, Respect.
