We mainly operate in the tourism sector in the Apennines near Parma. Our Cooperative counts eleven members, but more will be added soon. We have a main office in Torrechiara, near Parma, the village with one of the most beautiful medieval Italian castles.
Our Cooperative coordinates a network of tourist facilities and all together we work to create and promote cultural and recreational events in order to attract more visitors.
On 8th December 2012, for example, we organised a feast in our village Corniglio, to promote our traditional Christmas cake: spongata. It was a big success with a lot of visitors (about 1000) from all neighbour villages.
In 2014 we expanded our business to the entire Eastern Apennine near Parma and now we have a full calendar of events in cooperation with other parties.
How we promote cooperatives’ values and culture
