Il Cuore Altrove Foundation is the manifestation of hope in a cynical world. Protecting, nuturing and inspiring the world's most vulnerable children.
Our initiatives are focused on 3 main areas, Children, Environment and Research/Education.
We believe that those 3 pillars are the building blocks for a better future, a future worth living into.
“Il Cuore Altrove Foundation” in an italian word and it translates as The Heart Elsewhere Foundation.
Our ideal is to work with companies that can relate to our message and can catalyze the most powerful and efficient way to spread the word.

Alba is an entrepreneur who owns a well-known restaurant where she works with both tourism and the people of this wonderful island of Ibiza.
