8 - 10 May Matera, 17 - 19 May Mantua
This year again, Thun’s members left for a trip to visit the Capitals of Culture and discover landscapes identified as World Heritage of Humanity.
The first stop was Matera, the City of stones, where architecture and nature meet ever since the Palaeolithic era. Here, there’s evidence of the very first human settlements and this is one of the reasons why Matera is named “European Capital of Culture 2019”.
The participants visited the Cripta of the Original Sin, had a tasting of local wines at the Dragone Cantina and took an excursion to Alberobello.
The second stop was Mantua, named European Capital of Culture in 2016. The programme included a visit to the historical buildings, such as the Ducale palace famous for the beautiful room of the spouses and the Te Palace with the Giants Hall.
The trip included a visit to small and beautiful villages around Mantua, such as San Benedetto Po and its Abbey and Sabbioneta historical buildings.
The journey gave Thun’s members the opportunity to establish relationships as well as to generate a stronger bound to the brand.
