Stefano Cucca – the Sardinian man who left his home to bicycle around the world

On June 8th, 2013, 34-year-old Stefano Cucca left his home in Sorso, Sardinia to bicycle around the world to promote sustainable, eco-friendly lifestyles. Thus far, Stefano has ridden 30,000 kilometers and he hasn’t left Sardinia, yet.

The idea for this project came to him on one of his many voyages across the globe. He was in Australia in 2010 when the idea came forth and it took him three years to finally hop on his bicycle to make his Green Dream come true.

The name of this adventurous project is called – Rumundu.

What exactly does rumundu mean? Here’s a little snippet from Stefano’s website

The name Rumundu was coined by my grandmother. One day when I got back from one of my many trips she asked me, with her infinite wisdom, “ma tu sei sempri in giro pà ru mundu?”. In Sardinian dialect this means “are you always traveling around the world?” And so Rumundu was born!
The word Rumundu evokes concepts deeply tied to the earth, calling forth ancestral voices and leading to imagery that only nature can give us.”

Stefano is in search of stories from diverse people all over the world that choose to live eco-friendly, to large corporate companies and their responsibilities on planet earth. He will share his stories with the world with the hope of making a better future for generations to come.

Would you like to collaborate with Stefano or put him up for a night?

  1. Sounds exciting, what a trip he has to look forward to, and all of the adventures to come! Stefano safe travels! Amazing! I love what his Grandmother told him!

  2. Talk about an unsettled lifestyle! I hope security has improved a lot by the time he reaches South Africa – or he mounts a cannon on the handlebars!
