TFL Tours supports


Trillargento – Music as a Human Right

Trillargento is a not for profit organization that works through musical education for the inclusion and skills development of children and teenagers who live in a situation of socio-economic, cultural, psychological, emotional and educational hardship and/or disability. Our mission is to create a permanent social change in some of the most deprived communities in Genoa – a town in Northern Italy; we’re inspired by the music-pedagogical experience of El Sistema, conceived in Venezuela by J.A.Abreu in 1975 and then spread throughout many countries of the world.

We use participation in our orchestra and choir programmes, involving also disabled children, to change lives by fostering confidence, discipline, teamwork, pride and aspiration in the children and young people taking part. This enables them to reach their full potential, leading successful and fulfilled lives. This approach has a knock on effect for their families and the wider community in general seeing as we also have adult musical programmes.

In the last five years, we involved more than 2,000 children and teenagers. Today we’ve got 5 orchestras of 151 children, a rock band of 11 teens and some musical experiences for adults involving 55 people.

In addition to these experiences, which constitute the ordinary activity of Trillargento, every year we develop special projects involving refugees and asylum seekers and people with sensory and cognitive disabilities.

This is the feedback from our client Anna:
“My husband and I want to thank you and your excellent team for all you did to help make our holiday in Italy so special. We absolutely loved our accommodation. The cottage was very beautiful, and the location perfect for touring through Chianti. We were also very pleased with the hotel in Rome. We felt that your tour guides were incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, and would highly recommend them.
I would also like to thank Simona for sending me the Siena tour guide information, and to you for resending it after I misplaced it (my internet server was very poor). TFL tours was very professional and we are very happy that Forbes travel in Vancouver connected us to you.”

I wanted to let you know I am working on a honeymoon for my clients who got engaged in Florence last February (Julia and Lee). They mentioned that they have such wonderful memories of their time in Italy and told me all of the guides were “salt of the earth people”. I thought that was such a wonderful compliment and testimony to you all! Thought you should know!

This is the email I received from our clients Pat and Michael:
“Well, although we have been back in the States for two weeks, we are still floating on air after our trip. I can't thank you enough for arranging this near perfect experience for us. We had zero problems from the beginning to the end and everything in-between was smooth and stress-free. The ``handlers`` and drivers and tour guides and hotels and tours were all top-notch. The people from TFL were very wonderful.
So, I hope we will be back in touch sometime for you to arrange another fantastic trip in the future. In the meantime, I'm recommending your services to everyone I talk to!”
