Tourism as a driver of development in the Inner Areas

Arcangela Andreoli, Francesco Silvestri


This work is aimed at evaluating on one hand tourism development potentiality in territories involved in Italian “National Strategy for Inner Areas” (SNAI); on the other hand, at eliciting the conditions to be secured so that tourism could act as a real engine for growth. Starting from the analysis of available documents produced by Inner Areas so far, we classify the different territories on the basis of their emphasis on the tourism issue. The analysis is followed by an explanatory section, where we interpret the main tourism strategies referring to mainstream and heterodox economics approaches to local development. Finally, we consider the possible actions to be implemented in Inner Areas to get a tourism driven development.
