Towns, cities, territories: Italy’s wealth is in its infinite tiny treasures. We promote the local development of these territories, starting from the stories written by our followers, to transform every emotion into tangible growth.
Discoverplaces was founded by Claudia Bettiol, with a Ph.D in sustainability.
The Team is all made up by women with Roberta Gabrielli, Chiara Rossi, Alessia Di Donna, Emanuela Moroni e Maria Vittori.
The Discover group was born from Claudia Bettiol’s intuition, and from her years long experience in the socio economic sustainability field of small community. Discoverplaces.travel was founded in 2016 as a publishing company and website, it’s a Start Up with a “smart and innovative” character, renowned on a ministerial level.
As a publishing company, we publish the Tourist Guides to towns Italy collection. As a website, we can count on a bilingual database with more than 20.000 articles and 30.000 pictures. Outside of Italy, we are read by many users in the US, Canada, China and Australia. Every Thursday we publish a Newsletter that has gained a cult following of affectionate readers, that has the best stories from our territories, written by the people that live in and through them.
For schools we have developed the “Turismo Tra i Banchi” program, while for small businesses we organize micro-training courses through the Friend of Tourist / Amico del Turista program.
The future in our roots, embodies the entire philosophy contained in the mission of our Discover Places. We were born with the aim of supporting the development of those territories where the roots, traditions and knowledge of the most beautiful and hidden Italy are preserved. We do this through the stories of our thousands of readers and through the advice that we are able to offer to entrepreneurs and tour operators who want to enhance towns, cities and territories with enormous hospitality potential.
