I'm not entirely sure what the problem is here. 
Is it that the fake item label that you create 
starts one space off?  If so, just make the label 

item[\hspace{-1em}] \textbf{Asociación de Padres 
de Sordociegos de España (APASCIDE) Barcelona} 
Šfurther informationŠ

If that's not the problem, then what do you mean by different indentation?
