Fondazione Social Venture Giordano Dell’Amore


Archeologistics is a company that has been operating for over ten years in the cultural field through research, education and planning activities aimed at the recovery and opening of “minor” places of culture. The company, through the “Valori Verdi” entrepreneurial project, led by the Pineta Park of Appiano Gentile and Tradate, intends to contribute to the valorisation of the Olona Valley – located in the province of Varese – through: tourist experiences on foot and by e-bike, also rentable; opening of small cultural attractions thanks to the “Chiese a porte aperte” project; management of a tourist info point, which will have the function of connecting the sustainable tourism sector with residents, travellers, cultural operators and local authorities.

In 2022 Archeologistics participated in the Get it! Call for «Progetto ECO: Economia di Comunità»: a call promoted by Fondazione Cariplo, with the support of FSVGDA and Cariplo Factory, with the aim of relaunching within 3 territories (relating to the Municipality of Mantua, the Municipality of Lecco and at the Pineta Park in Appiano Gentile and Tradate) green employment and increase the ability to attract investments linked to sustainability. After completing an incubation, acceleration and mentorship journey, it was awarded as “Best Start-up For Impact” at the Investor Day of Get it! for Progetto ECO with an investment of €100,000 to support its growth by the Fondazione Social Venture Giordano Dell’Amore, the strategic and operational arm of Fondazione Cariplo in the field of impact investing and promoter of the program, in partnership with Cariplo Factory.


The objective of the initiative is to reach and accompany people to little-known places in a sustainable way, promoting slow tourism with reduced environmental impact through the construction of bridges capable of establishing relationships between the territory and its cultural heritage. In this regard, Archeologistics promotes projects aimed at involving the public in the knowledge and care of historical-artistic assets, natural parks and archaeological areas, through the organization of temporary exhibitions or events that highlight the values ​​shared by local communities and their identity. Archeologisitcs also creates visit itineraries in the area for school groups – from nursery school to high school – respecting the educational needs of each age group and in coherence with the individual study paths, with the aim of offering each student a stimulating and personal growth experience. Furthermore, the company determines a regenerative impact in the territory of the province of Varese through archaeological excavation activities within construction sites and preventive archaeology. The excavation methodologies and choices are the result of discussion with the archaeological Superintendencies responsible for the territory and type of work, which hold the scientific direction and ownership of the data resulting from each archaeological investigation.
