The volume was presented to the president of the Republic Sergio Mattarella.
"We have this double band - says Prodi - mass tourism and qualified tourism. We must keep this double vocation. But we have a regional fragmentation of competences and lack of a national policy. In the middle Ages there were the camino de Santiago and the via Francigena. Today, Santiago welcomes tourists and travelers from all over the world. The Francigena a lot less because full of many different municipalities, each with its fragmentation and its laws. The mission of Tci is to act at the local level through a national policy". Prodi speaks also of the Mediterranean "No longer exists as a place of dialogue as it was in the past, everything is concentrated in the bathing has lost the great relationship between the civilizations. I think that the core of this elite tourism that knows the culture and the history can be rightfully Sicily. But then, I think that Sicily has a tenth of the tourists of the Balearic islands and it is sad. No one better in the Tci can make this very difficult synthesis."
Giuseppe De Rita, instead, emphasizes: "at Least before there was the warmth of the inn. Now in Italy we have just over 30 thousand hotels, but do you think that in Rome alone there are 30 thousand apartments, Bed and Breakfast... And the tourist is only there with his key to enter and its trolley. In short, a desperate! Understand the pulverization of the relations and tourism the same?".
"The Coliseum has more than 6 million visitors a year and a few hundred metres Palazzo Venezia, which has extraordinary collections only 50 thousand visitors a year. There is something that does not come back. In Italy to talk about tourism means to govern the growth and focus on quality", explained the minister Dario Franceschini, who has revealed himself as the openings of the free museums on Sunday to attract more people in the stadiums. "The Tci - says - she has always done this. Has brought the people even in those who, wrongly, are called the destinations in children, has led them to deepen their journey. The fact that they were "travellers" not "tourists". And this Italy has need of it".
"I found - adds the minister - the meeting today of the vertices of the Tci with the head of State, beautiful and deep. And I am of that generation who as a child was waiting for the parcel of Touring, which came up to my dad with great excitement and with the hope and with the certainty of finding new maps, new ideas, and new wonders". "On the one hand - says Franceschini - the focus should be on sustainable tourism, intelligent, able to bring wealth in Italy and to respect the fragility of our cities, our countryside and, at the same time, to multiply the attractions to international tourist in order to govern the growth of the cash flows that we expect in the next few years and to overcome this effect distorted that some Italian places have now a problem of overcrowding and other wonderful sites do not attract international tourism".
