“Creating, developing and enhancing the culture of accessibility. At the bottom is a virtuous circle that when it starts self-feeding”

Valentina has always been involved in computer science, first only for others and now also for herself and for her project: Guidabile – free time accessible to all – with which she wins Startup Weekend in Catania in 2014. To spread and enhance the culture of accessibility through a web and mobile platform, a game of missions and an active community on the territory, this is Guiding. Together with Paolo, her life companion and partner, she is mapping Sicilian cities to create an accessibility database. Guidable wants to set in motion a virtuous circle that rewards accessible places and places, also connecting people sensitive to the subject and people with specific needs. Overall this creates value for everyone. She is member of Sicilia Turismo per Tutti and AISM (Italian Multiple Sclerosis Association). She is a new mother who in her free time turns into a black belt in judo 1′ dan!
