Il Cammino di Dante (Dante’s Walk)

11 segnaletica cammino di danteThe Italian Cultural Institute in Sydney, together with The Italian National Tourist Board (ENIT) Australia & New Zealand, and with the collaboration of the Toscana Promozione Turistica agency and Il cammino di Dante® association, are pleased to present an event dedicated to Italian walking routes, and in particular to Dante’s Walk.

Il Cammino di Dante (Dante's Walk) is a loop of approximately 400km in 20 stages retracing the route that Dante Alighieri is thought to have taken when he was exiled from Florence in the early 14th century. It runs between the regions of Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna along the ancient paths walked by the Romans and Etruscans, immersing itself into the wilderness of the Apennines, through medieval castles, magical landscapes and peaceful hermitages.

The walk begins at Dante’s tomb in Ravenna and finishes at the Dante’s House Museum in Florence, going through many of the placeswhere the poet spent time in exile and which he described in many passages of the Divine Comedy.

The event will be moderated by the Italian National Tourist Board’s Manager Emanuele Attanasio, and will feature live participation via videoconference from Toscana Promozione Turistica agency and Il cammino di Dante association.

The Italian National Tourist Board was founded in 1919 as ENIT (Ente Nazionale Italiano per l’Incremento delle Industriepianta cammino dante Turistiche), and it has been promoting Italy and its beauty abroad for over 100 years, striving to increase the quality and quantity of tourists visiting the country. It accomplishes its mission by developing promotional strategies to motivate leisure and business travel to Italy and market its varied regional and local offer through its network of offices worldwide.

Emanuele Attanasio is the Italian National Tourist Board Manager for Australia and New Zealand. He was born in Milan and grew up in the Tuscan town of Lucca. Emanuele has been living in Australia for over 30 years. During his 17-years’ experience at the National Tourist Board he had the opportunity to promote Italy through the organisation of several initiatives in Australia, New Zealand and many prestigious international events such as the Vietnam Travel Expo in 2017 together with the Italian Undersecretary of State, and the Virtuoso Italian Luxury event in New York in 2019 with his American colleagues.
