MAIN PROJECTS 

2011: the Appasseggio APP has been developed, freely downloadable from AppStore and GooglePlay, Through this APP, the user can enjoy cultural itineraries (in Italian) with geolocalized points of interest, accompanied by multimedia resources (video, audio, images, texts). This application was presented in several international conferences (Canada, Berlin, Prato). Currently the APP contains more than 100 itineraries. The Association works in collaboration with several libraries and museums with which it has cooperation agreements, in particular the National Central Library of Rome, the Library of Modern and Contemporary History, the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, the Museum of the Risorgimento, the Archaeological Superintendence for Southern Etruria ecc.

2012: the Association launches the project "Appasseggio: the culture of the promenade, the promenade of culture" to actively promote the culture of walking and slow walking, knowledge of the territory, interaction with local communities and exercise for the well-being of mind, spirit and health. Involving a network of storytellers and experts, starts a series of micro-projects, aimed at developing thematic itineraries: historical, literary, artistic, naturalistic, paying great attention to less known territories and suburbs.

2013: the Association has also begun to collaborate with schools, in particular in the context of the project "Appasseggio in the history", proposing seminars in class and walks in the area that have the aim of bringing the students closer to the territory around them, making them aware of the memory of the places and teaching them to "read the landscape" in all its forms.

2014: In October 2014, in collaboration with the Thamus Cultural Association. GoTellGo, started the project CityTelling – Stories from the town ", which gathered the patronage of the 5th Municipality of Rome. The aim of the project is to collect different types of documentary materials on the history and memory of the territory during the twentieth century, in order to start a process of digitization and storage of sources of various nature, for the creation of multimedia paths, accessible through web and mobile devices, for the use of the contemporary historical heritage in a perspective of transformation of the territory into an open-air museum.

2014: Exhibition and catalog: 19 July 1943 - 4 June 1944. Rome towards freedom
On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Rome, the Association was entrusted with the care of the exhibition "19 July 1943 - 4 June 1944. Rome towards freedom", promoted by the Municipality of Rome and in collaboration with the Istituto Luce. The exhibition was set up in the Zanardelli Hall of the Vittoriano Complex. The Association has thus curated the thematic set-up of the rooms, creating a path aimed at getting to know the places and events related to the Nazi-fascist occupation of Rome and the liberation struggle of the city, highlighting new aspects emerging from new research projects. GoTellGo also edited the exhibition catalogue, published by the Gangemi publishing house.

2014-2015: Appasseggio in the literature

2017: Word-Crossing
Coordinated by the GoTellGo Cultural Association, is a project completed in October 2017, funded under the Io Leggo Call of the Lazio Region - Department for Culture and Youth Policies (Executive Determination No. G.14448 of 5/12/2016 ). Promoting and educating for reading aloud is the general objective of the Word Crossing project, which aims to capitalize and develop what was achieved in the previous project Appasseggio in the literature (appasseggionellaletteratura.it), consolidating its activities and networks. The specific objectives are: to define a methodology for teaching the rudiments of reading aloud and for organizing spontaneous reading aloud events (Bookmobs); to train aloud readers that can in turn become promoters of reading; "Infecting" reading throughout Lazio and especially in areas with greater social criticality involving the public of non-readers who can approach the book through reading aloud. The planned activities are: definition of a model of microworkshop for reading aloud and of guidelines for the organization of spontaneous reading events to which the trainers will have to refer. 80 microlaboratories of reading aloud; stimulation of at least 15 BookMob (people who spontaneously - like in flashmob - meet in a place to read together aloud or to illustrate a book). Development of a network of stakeholders willing to collaborate and keep the project alive. For details on the project: http://www.appasseggio.it/index.php?it/438/wordcrossing

The main aim is to build community maps.

2018-2019: EUWalkTogether
Advocacy project who got the label for the European Year of Cultural Heritage which aims to encourage "urban and suburban walking", not only as a recreational activity in the open air, for leisure, exercise, in company or alone, but also as an opportunity to increase their knowledge of the past and recent history of European places and territories in their broader declination, promoting awareness of their European identity based on common values, history and culture and contributing to intercultural dialogue. The walk therefore, as an opportunity to meet the citizens of Europe: walking to learn but also to "remember", an active contribution to the discovery and integration of different places and cultures.
