As in previous editions, experts and representatives from international institutions, the European Commission, and UNWTO will meet regions and local actors to share ideas on the future and challenges of European tourism, as well as their most interesting and innovative experiences.

In order to illustrate the excellence offered by Italian culture, Art&Tourism will create six wide-ranging thematic areas, focusing on themes and products from the country, such as industrial museums, contemporary art galleries, Italian villages, Italian festivals, and Italian UNESCO Heritage sites.

An important space will be dedicated to “Smart Cities” technology applied to the promotion of an area and art as an engine of change and urban transformation.
