Giulia Motta Zanin


Graduated in Planning and policies for the environment at Università Iuav di Venezia and currently Ph.D student in Risk and environmental development at Politecnico of Bari. I feel Wanderlust! It’s a german word, made from “wander” (walking) and “Lust” (desire), meaning a strong desire to travel and to discover new places. I started walking along Via Francigena in 2010 and FuoriVia is allowing me to feel Wanderlust every day!


Auro Michelon


Graduated in landscape architecture at the Università Iuav di Venezia with a thesis on the Via Francigena in Europe. In 2012 I participate in the European project ESLAND at Cambridge University and later that year I was awarded Go Slow first prize in Milan. Now I work as an Architect and also like to happily walk through the woods.


Radouan Andrea Mounecif


I’m an historian and an archivist specialized in Economic and Social History and Euro-Mediterranean relations. Walker since 2011, I actively participate in FuoriVia initiatives as I strongly believe that slow travel and historical routes are helpful tool to promote intercultural dialogue and cooperation across the Mediterranean.



Francesco Bruzzone


I’m a master student in urban planning in Venice and have always been focusing my interests on people and goods transport networks, even though I have a special relationship with the
agricultural world too. Walking is simply the best way to explore and understand whatever environment – as simple as it sounds.


Alice Merenda Somma


at primary school I established “The Artist’s Club”, later: a fanzine, a theater crew, a curatorial project, an international observatory and a peripatos. In order to legitimize my restlessness, I graduated in Philosophy. My thesis goes more or less like this: “to better understand the world, you need some hustle and bustle”.



Chiara Costantini

Visual designer

Who is Constantin? I’m working about! I am a visual designer who met Fuorivia (at the time LabFrancigena) at the Università Iuav di Venezia, where almost of us studied. In love with the project, I followed them, in every way, walking and giving my visual contribute.



Riccardo Bermani


Graduated in Planning and policies for the city and landscape (Università Iuav di Venezia) and co-founder of the About association (, a venetian independent group of research, actions and arts.



Dario Bertocchi


I’m a research fellow at the university of Venice (Italy) with a curriculum in new technologies and tourism economy. I’m working on new technologies and tourism regarding the use of different data analytics methods to extract new information and value from the data to improve the management of a tourism destination and the creation of a tourist experience.



Carla Bonani


I’m an urbanist. Some decades ago walking I developed a passion for “the green”, before attending the School of Monza, then the Historical Garden of Padua, and not least the Benetton Foundation, combining landscape and knowledge.




Giulia D’Antonio


As urban and landscape planner I’m interested in new, alternative, cooperative and involving practices to discover and explore the space. Walking for almost 30 km per day makes you feel stronger the territory in which you’re walking. Seeing landscape and people change enrich the trip. Travel in your territory begins a travel around the world.



Leonardo Marotta


Environmental Scientist and Sustainability designer and facilitator at Entropia (Recanati, Italy), Coho (Civitanova Marche, Italy) and Unisky (Venice, Italy). I was responsible for sustainability assessment and developing short- and long-term plans and projects. At Entropia I help companies increasing sustainability performances, public administration to improve urban, natural and coastal environments.


Cecilia Nardi


I’m an expat in France who’s gone through urban planning studies, but I have later decided I prefer human relationships. I study early childhood education and all I ask for is to be paid to play all day long.
