About us

Passion for art and the desire to share it are the humus that fuels ACÀNTO.

ACÀNTO has been set up by professionals in the field of culture and communication and directs its attention to an audience that wants to be an active part in the research and discovery of what human creativity was able to produce in all times and places, to whom who likes to express his individuality by turning the opportunities to meet into a rich and lively cultural exchange.

For this reason ACÀNTO, with the professionalism and expertise that distinguish those who love their work, offers to the CURIOUS TRAVELLERS in search of the unusual, exciting itineraries to discover the works of art and the world from which they originated. Destinations range from famous to little known sites, already seen or revisited with new eyes, to capture not only the cultural and artistic matters, but also their popular tradition, the anecdote, the detail.

Similarly ACÀNTO offers to COMPANIES AND BUSINESS REALITIES that choose to make their events in line with the flair for beauty and art, its experience in the selection of places and themes and the utmost careful organization.

ACÀNTO comes from a dream: traveling in more than one direction, simultaneously… that’s our invitation!

Some say about us

From Facebook

Had the absolute pleasure to meet and work with Emanuela. A joy, visited places in Milan I never even knew existed. Professional and simpatica at the same time.
If you ever need to live the city as a local and not a tourist, you must use her services. 5 stars all the way !!

Well. You certainly made an impression with my clients ! They have been in touch with their Canadian agent to say that out of all the guides they’ve EVER had, you were the most informative and the best !
