Gran Tour Sud is Planning, Infrastructures, Environment, Energy, Landscape Architecture, Urban Redevelopment, Enhancement of Cultural Heritage, Public Buildings and Spaces, Tourism Equipment. The multimedia exhibition and the website, conceived as part of FareTurismo 2006, document over 200 plans and projects under development and implementation in Basilicata, Calabria, Campania, Apulia, Sardinia and Sicily. The concept of the exhibition recalls the “Grand Tour”, a term that was used for the first time in 1636 to indicate the cultural journey that had as its destination the main cities and the historical-artistic masterpieces of our country. The idea of ​​this Italy of great centers of art, archeology and history is still found in the imagination of many foreigners and that modern tour operators tend to re-propose.
If the intellectual journey of a few hundred young gentlemen of the European aristocracy was once limited above all by the difficulties of movement, today, thanks to the modern system of infrastructures and services, tourism in all its meanings has become more democratic and at the same time a fundamental voice for the economy of our country. The Plans and projects of the Exhibition therefore represent innovative solutions that can help to enhance and qualify the tourist offer and at the same time extend the historic “Grand Tour” to all of Italy.
