An extraordinary project wants to provide access to gondolas also to people who use a wheelchair to get around.
“We have not yet collected all the necessary money for the project, but we have made an important first stretch of path, thanks to which we are able to ensure the start of the project in the first execution phase” declare Alessandro Dalla Pietà and Enrico Greifenberg, the creators of the Onlus Gondolas4All’s project.
In recent months we have received testimonials of support and estimation, and economic contributions that allowed us to be today “at the kick off” of the project. And we want to thank all the people who were close to us in many different ways.
In primis, the Councillor for Tourism of the Veneto Region Marino Finozzi, and all his Staff (with whom we had frequent contacts), who first believed in this project, and guaranteeing a funding of 50.000 Euros: This first testimony gave us the strength to continue to make it happen!
A further contribution of 40.000 Euros was offered by Ermitage Bel Air Medical Hotel (Abano Terme) thanks to Maggia’s Family, that work for the quality of its Guests for many years.
