General Information

Ente Pro Loco Italiane (EPLI) is a Third Sector Association Network present in most Italian regions. It aims to organise cultural, artistic and recreational activities of social interest, including the promotion and dissemination of the volunteering culture and practice. 


The pro loco are associations that promote and enhance Italian tangible and intangible assets and EPLI offers its affiliates the services and incentives to be able to operate in the best possible way. 


Its structure is organised with an autonomous National Committee which includes the EPLI Presidents Regional Committees, together with the General Secretary and an operational coordination for the following Sectors: social, environmental, sports, legislative, planning. EPLI, which is a non-profit organisation and Social Promotion Association, in just two years has managed to involve over 1500 pro loco (end of 2023) and is operational in 13 Regions through Regional Committees. In addition to offering essential services to pro locos, EPLI is the inspiration for very important national projects as well as numerous institutional partners thanks to the Memorandums of Understanding with the Ministry of Tourism and the Ministry of Justice. It collaborates with numerous Regions and recognised bodies such as UNCEM, CNA Tourism and Commerce and above all with the CSVNet network.
