Si parte con Marco, che dopo averti consegnato le ruote delle emozioni e dei luoghi, ti inviterà a tracciare un itinerario lungo il tuo Fiume della Vita nel quale, usando prima la ragione e poi il cuore, farai emergere i tuoi paesaggi interiori e li disegnerai a matita a seconda di come ti sei sentita/o, ti senti e ti sentirai con riguardo a eventi del tuo passato, del tuo presente e del tuo futuro.

Biella: the Third Paradise on the River

Each Place has something that deserves to be told, emotions to elicit. Each of us can associate to the spirit of that Place his or her own perspective, story, search, journey.
This is what geo-maieutics is all about: putting together the physical journey with the personal one, overlapping real geographies with inner landscapes.
The innovative methodology The River of Life, created by Marco Bertagni, targets to improving personal development and the knowledge of places that, thanks to their geographical features, allow the emergence of deep emotions.

End of the journey Biella: Presentation of the geo-emotional profiles of travelers, the results of the River Game Overground and sharing of travel experiences.

Marco Bertagni and EMME’s Geographers of Emotions create geo-maieutical paths in order to offer unique experiences to travellers and the opportunity to get closer to themselves, to others and to Earth.
In May 2024 we are realising this travel experience in the Biellese area. Biella, che “all’opra fumanti camini ostenta” according to Carducci’s definition, will certainly surprise the travellers who will get into a changement process and will realise that, as Eraclito said “No man ever steps in the same river twice”: so Travellers will be different than they were at the beginning of the journey. And also the River will….

On May 23, after the introduction to The River of Life Project the travellers will play the first two River Games: Get Ready and Map out your Emotions. They will get familiar with the rules of Overground, a geo-emotional photo hunting.
The following morning, May 24, the group will walk to a mysterious cave on the shore of a River to evoke the primordial feeling of the night of times: the beginning of EARTH.
The magic atmosphere of Sanctuary of Oropa will be the location of ROOTS, the second stage of this 6 geo-emotional stages experience that the Geographers of Emotions of EMME, Marco Bertagni, Ernesto Panza and Lucia Lamonarca are proposing and leading. It’s here that the River Game Geographer of Emotions will be played. Two teams will be created and will dive into the integrated knowledge, through the art and the beauty of sharing emotions and the magic of creating together a path to reach a dream of someone unknown but perceived like everyone’s dream.
On May 25, the EMOTIONS chapter will be filled with the first edition of a very innovative coaching experience and artistic atelier, based on the meeting of geography with the art of…table setting, aiming to evoke the spirit of being together, cultural sharing and conviviality by conceiving and realizing a mise en table, in the stunning gardens of Villa Malpenga.
The stage LIFE will be experienced among the plants of the Burcina: blossoming should not be the reason of our life?
The unique and hilly scenario of the Baraggia di Candelo will host travellers during the PHILOSOPHY stage of this emotional journey on May 26 and the Cervo River will still be there, flowing…
Similarly, the River Cervo and the music of its waters will be background of the magnificent Spazio Terzo Paradiso, in Biella, at Michelangelo Pistoletto’s Cittadellarte, where the travellers will have a talk about FREEDOM.
The journey will end up with a debate during which each traveller will have her/his own geo-emotional profile by harmonizing many elements – material and spiritual – that have been gathered during this experience.

EMME’s Geographers of Emotions actively involved in the Journey: Marco Bertagni, Ernesto Panza, Lucia Lamonarca

Participation fee per person: euro 400
The fee includes all the geo-emotional, educational and coaching activities and experiences, the light lunch at Malpenga on May 25, 2024.

Porta in volo le tue radici

C’è chi ha troppo “i piedi per terra” e chi troppo “la testa in aria”.

Questo percorso di crescita personale vuole integrare i due opposti accompagnando chi ha voglia di cambiamento ma è bloccato dalla paura o è perso nell’illusione.

Incipit: c’è un andare nel mio restare, c’è un restare nel mio andare

Setting: Seminario residenziale ad Anzio

Metodologia: Cartografia Emozionale, Coaching e Yoga.

Cartografia emozionale utilizzata inizialmente con funzione diagnostica, per fare un’auto-analisi del rapporto emozionale con proprio corpo e con la propria mente.

Yoga usato come aggancio al corpo per stare nei sensi e focalizzare l’attenzione tramite il respiro, Coaching come mezzo di esplorazione delle proprie potenzialità ed espressione della propria unicità. Obiettivo: conoscersi, amarsi e soddisfare i bisogni auto-realizzativi.

Durata: 8 ore

1. Cartografiamo emozionalmente il nostro corpo e la nostra mente
2. Rallentiamo
3. Sentiamo le Radici
4. Apriamo le Ali
5. Raccogliamo le Stelle
6. Ritorniamo a casa

Obiettivo: favorire l’integrazione tra le radici – intese come espressione di chi si è e da dove si arriva, sia come ancoraggio alla realtà – e il cielo – inteso come spazio in cui andare a prendere la propria stella (identificando i propri desideri) -.

Il “viaggio” parte dal rallentare per ridurre gli automatismi e aumentare la consapevolezza, per poi lavorare sul radicamento e successivamente sull’apertura alla vita, per esprimere il desiderio e mettersi in movimento per realizzarlo.

Si usano: la parola, in particolare le domande gestaltiche, domande di apertura, strumenti di Coaching come la Ruota della vita, carta, matite e colori, il respiro e il corpo.

In una parola: integrazione. Del movimento fisico con quello interiore, della terra con il cielo, della parte inferiore del corpo con quella superiore, del corpo con la mente.

Firm Roots and Taking Flight

There are those who have their feet too firmly planted on the ground and those who have their head too far in the clouds. This journey of personal growth aims to integrate these two opposites, guiding those who are eager for change but are hindered by fear or lost in illusion.

There is a going within my staying, there is a staying within my going.

Setting: Residential seminar in Anzio.

Methodology: Emotional Cartography, Coaching, and Yoga. Emotional cartography is initially used diagnostically, to conduct a self-analysis of one’s emotional relationship with their body and mind. Yoga serves as a connection to the body to engage the senses and focus attention through breath, while coaching is utilized for exploring one’s potential and expressing their uniqueness.

Objective: to know oneself, love oneself, and fulfill self-actualizing needs.

Duration: 8 hours

Emotional mapping of our body and mind

  1. Slowing down
  2. Feeling the roots
  3. Opening the wings
  4. Gathering the stars
  5. Returning home

Objective: to facilitate integration between the roots – understood as expressions of who one is and where they come from, both as grounding in reality – and the sky – seen as the space where one reaches for their star (identifying their desires).

The “journey” begins with slowing down to reduce automatism and increase awareness, then works on rooting, followed by opening up to life to express desire and take action to achieve it.

Tools used include words, particularly gestalt questions, open-ended questions, coaching tools such as the Wheel of Life, paper, pencils and colors, breath, and the body.

In one word: integration.

Of physical movement with inner movement, of earth with sky, of the lower part of the body with the upper, of body with mind.

For information and reservations, please email 

This course will be delivered in Italian

Garfagnana: where the Dreams meet Reality

Each place holds narratives waiting to be shared and emotions waiting to be stirred. Each individual can imbue the essence of a place with their own unique perspective, story, quest, and journey. This is the essence of geo-maieutics: intertwining physical expeditions with personal odysseys, blending tangible landscapes with inner realms.

The groundbreaking methodology, The River of Life, conceived by Marco Bertagni, aims to enhance personal growth and deepen the understanding of locations where geographical characteristics evoke profound emotions. Marco Bertagni and EMME’s Geographers of Emotions are crafting geo-maieutical routes to offer travelers unparalleled experiences, fostering self-discovery, connection with others, and a deeper bond with the Earth.

The geo-maieutical journey to Garfagnana stands out as “the” journey, as the Serchio River symbolizes the River of life and the enchanted Garfagnana Valley, nestled between the Apuane Alps and the Apennines, epitomizes the Realm of existence teeming with emotional hills, peaks and a myriad of unparalleled experiences.
It serves as a nexus where people from all corners of the globe converge, forging connections amidst the breathtaking natural landscape.
