The first Impact Hub on our route was recently founded in Reggio Emilia, a small town in the Emilia Romania region, between Parma and Modena, a region well known for its delicious cheese and expensive sports cars. Here we met one of the founders of the Hub, Stefano Guerrieri, who installed himself in the there with his innovative furniture company Playwood (www.playwood.it).
Stefano also took us on a stroll through the ancient city center of Reggio Emilia, where we found a refreshing fountain in front of the famous Theatre and had an amazing Focaccia with Ice Cream. Towards the evening, he took us to our destination for the night, the Bioagriturismo Ca’ del Ciuco just outside of the town, which is run by friends of his. After parking Sandy in between the old stone walls, we had Aperitivo with Stefano and his wife Carlotta and got to know the owners of the beautifully renovated place and took a much needed dip in their lovely pool (www.cadelciuco.it).
