Cultural Itineraries in Tuscany

  • Edited by:
  • Laura Cassi,
  • Margherita Azzari,
  • Monica Meini,

In the conviction that cultural itineraries must assume a growing importance in a tourism based on the criteria of sustainability, three examples of the promotion of local culture have been elaborated. This is in fact an important component of sustainable development, of which one of the fundamental aspects is the historic memory of the territory. The growth of the tourist and free-time market provides an effective stimulus for the development of proposals aimed at prospecting new itineraries and alleviating the more consolidated tourist flows, inserting a vast heritage of landscape and cultural resources within significant territorial fabrics. This is true also from the point of view of growing synergies between economy and culture. The three proposed itineraries unwind through areas of great interest in terms of historical traditions and specific territorial resources which deserve to be promoted on a cultural level, especially in view of the fact that Tuscany offers an enormous wealth distributed in a capillary manner, much of which is still virtually unknown.
