Our business concept

All our arrangements are tailormade,  based on the customer’s wishes and requirements, and we are with you all the way. We are on the spot before, during and after the event, we hold the threads and stand backstage to make sure everything works as planned.

We can also help with the content of the conference and convey speakers or artists, as well as arrange study visits. For example, we have made several programs with architecture and design themes in collaboration with Swedish architect Erik Ingvert in both Rome, Bologna and Milan. We have also arranged study visits to law firms, schools, dental clinics, hospitals and factories of various kinds.

Amicheitalia only co-operates with professional proven suppliers and has co-workers throughout Italy.

Our history

Amicheitalia was founded in August 2002 by Hilda Ljunghill and Agneta Söderström, two Swedish women with previous experience in the travel industry and Italy at heart. – We had no idea what to expect when we started a company in Italy, says Hilda, but it was a dream that came true. With great commitment and enthusiasm, as well as a well-established network of contacts in both Italy and Scandinavia, the business is growing and Amicheitalia is quickly becoming a primary reference for Scandinavian travel agencies and companies.

After twelve years together in the office in Rome’s Jewish ghetto, Hilda and Agneta went separate ways in 2014. Hilda is now the sole owner and CEO of Amicheitalia, which has a staff of 10. She runs the company in new, modern offices together with well-selected staff, all women of Scandinavian origin and long experience in the industry. Amicheitalia currently has offices in Rome and in Lund and permanent staff in both Gothenburg and Milan.
