Donata has been the first to apply as GRT Member, and she well deserves a "gender tourism delegate status". Next to an old farmhouse, she have created "Valcrosa": four villas amongst olive groves, with barbeque facilities, a wood oven, reading room with wifi, swimming pool, whirlpool tub, sauna, toys for children, wine tasting courses, and a path from where the guests can go trekking, cycling and making the most of the outdoors.
With five neighbours she founded Mete di Liguria, in the western part of Liguria.
