Cooperativa Torquato Tasso

Born in about 1970 by the will of some Sorrento taxi drivers, The Cooperative Tasso has become what it is today thanks the audacity, the skill and the determination of the defunct founder and coordinator Ronca Mario, better known as Mario l’Amalfitano. One of the goals for which the cooperative is born was to avoid to transform our wonderful town into a bustling metropolitan center, since, due to its geographical formation, full of small streets that still witness the Roman period, it does not fit to big tourist busses, and that’s how year after year Sorrento gained the actual structure, that we helped to model toghether with local authorities, to match public utilities.
