Turismo Responsabile

Ferrino is the first outdoor sports equipment manufacturer in Italy to have put into practice the values of Responsible Tourism.
It did this in 2006 with the T.RES project, designed to promote ethical travel that respects the environment and the customs of its inhabitants. A kind of tourism that represents the universal principles of fairness, sustainability, and tolerance.
Below are the ten golden rules that make every trip more complete, more civil, and more natural.

Arno Peters: a world map that perfectly represents T.RES’s values.

Published in 1973, the world map produced by German cartographer Arno Peters faithfully represents the real size of different places in the world, overcoming the Europe-centric focus of Mercator’s map (1569) and its successive versions. It is a scientifically correct example of a fair relationship between north and south in the world, that should be followed far beyond the limits of geography.
