OVERVIEW

Tourism is one of the cornerstones of the development and revitalization of many Italian regions, particularly in Liguria, which in recent years, according to the REGIONAL TOURIST OBSERVATION, has a positive trend and continuous growth. 

In particular, the teaching of TERRITORI DEL MADE IN ITALY AND SUSTAINABLE TOURIST SYSTEMS aims at providing some tools for the analysis of the link between territory and tourism. 

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course provides a general knowledge of the approach of social geography to the phenomena of local development with particular attention to the tourism sector and to new styles of life related to leisure. Students at the end of the course acquire knowledge of the dynamics of the processes of territorial and local development on the basis of spatial models of the local systems in tourism and case studies.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course is divided into two parts:

b) the organizational-territorial models that create a brand. The brand is a communication tool of territorial value. Tourist brands and case studies.

The student will be able to analyze the image of the territory both to recognize the specificity of its cultural heritage and to identify strategies for the development of integrated and sustainable tourism. 

It will also develop skills in the design, documentation and presentation of tourism services or products.

The course includes frontal lessons, in which slides and videos will be used.

Group discussions on the main concepts and issues will also take place.

Privileged witnesses and/or experts will be present during some lessons.
