Shaping Sentiero Italia

The Italian hubs of the Global Shapers Community are partners of Va’ Sentiero, the project of three young Italians who are re-discovering Sentiero Italia. 


4275 miles, 1.150.000 feet of elevation gain, 20/20 Italian regions crossed, 6 Natural UNESCO Sites, 368 stages… Sentiero Italia is the longest trek in the world, a forgotten hiking trail that crosses all Italian ranges, uniting the Boot from sea to sea and across the mountains.


Yuri, Sara and Giacomo are personally hiking Sentiero Italia in its entirety, on foot of course. Step after step, they are sharing their experience through social media: the wonders, the encounters, the food, the accents…the adventure! They are also collecting all the useful and technical info about the trail in a dedicated web platform, in order to inspire people to discover the Sentiero Italia. 


Global Shapers featuring Va’ Sentiero are organising public events at some stages of the journey, with talks and workshops.


On April 27 the Venice Hub of Global Shapers hosted the debate “Life in plastic: it’s NOT fantastic!” in Muggia, a talk about water pollution with exceptional guests: from Legambiente to Ca’ Foscari University, from Plastic River to Seads, from Apepak to Ecor NaturaSì.
