Inspired by his 90-year-old grandmother’s question – Why are you always around “pà ru mundu”? – (which translates into “why are you always travelling around the world?”), Stefano called his new challenge, Rumundu.
In between, 32 thousand kilometres of paved roads, dirt tracks and paths that Stefano has travelled to make one of his dreams come true: to cycle around the world in search of sustainable stories and lifestyles.
An “off-route” journey, alone and at a slow pace, with the aim of understanding if another world, far from the consumerist economic model, was possible.
Three hundred and sixty-five days cycling between Europe, America, Asia, Oceania and Africa, to get in touch with sustainable stories and lifestyles; three hundred stages to document how social innovation and conscious entrepreneurship can transform society.
Stefano has spent most of his private and professional life on the move. A graduate in Economics and Commerce from the University of Sassari, he completed his training at the Business School in San Francisco.
Today Rumundu is a network based in Sardinia and South Africa, a Social Innovation School and an Academy, the first permanent school in the Mediterranean for the innovators of the future, which develops and supports sustainable economic and environmental projects that have a positive impact on the Sardinian territory and the world.
