    OVERVIEW

     

    Tourism is one of the keystones of the development and revitalization of many Italian regions, in particular Liguria, which in recent years, according to the REGIONAL TOURIST OBSERVATORY, presents a positive trend and continuous growth, that the crisis of 2020 due to the global pandemic has only slowed down.

    In particular, the teaching of TERRITORI DEL MADE IN ITALY E GEOGRAFIA DEL MARE: I SISTEMI TURISTICI aims to provide some tools for the analysis of the link between territory and tourism and to focus on the geography of the sea, focusing in particular on the potential inherent in the tourist uses of the sea.
