Specifically, the course addressed the issues related to the history of travel, its motives and especially its importance as a motor of intercultural dialogue - the concepts that have led to the development of the  philosophy and of the Model of practical application Life Beyond Tourism (result of over 25 years of practical and research activities conducted by the Romualdo del Bianco Foundation at the behest of Centro Congressi al Duomo), Learning Communities for Intercultural Dialogue and finally the Certification Life Beyond Tourism conceived to distinguish the actors of the territory active in practical application of principles of the Model LBT within their own activity.

The program of the course also included visits to the historic city center of Florence, a World Heritage Site. In the framework of the course, an exclusive initiative was also launched by the Centro Congressi al Duomo, “VO PER BOTTEGHE”: unique itineraries in Florentine artisan workshops and historic shops in collaboration with the Association of Historic, Traditional and Typical Shops in Florence. The course participants had a unique opportunity to discover Florentine realities that are hidden to the eyes of ordinary tourists and even to those of many Florentines - all those artisans and shops that today risk to disappear flattened by unsustainable rhythms of globalization in the world today.
