In September, representatives from the University of Information Technology and Management in Rzeszow (PL) and the University for Sustainable Development in Eberswalde (DE) came to Lugano for the training Academy, while participants from the University of Novi Sad (SRB) attended the Academy online.
Chair holder, Prof. Lorenzo Cantoni, is part of HTHIC’s “Heritage & Slow Tourism LAB”, which is a spin-off of the Heritage, Tourism and Hospitality, International Conference (HTHIC). The virtual LAB explores the meanings and practices of 'Slow' to preserve heritage with regards to tourism.
The Chair and the open-edition journal, Via Tourism Review, have become partners. Via Tourism Review is an international, plurilingual and multidisciplinary, tourism journal. It publishes in different languages.
A new semester has started for the Master in International Tourism, combining both online and offline classes! A new international class of 17 students, coming from six different countries and motivated to learn, is ready to shape the sustainable future of travel and tourism.
Our newest addition to the team is Camilla Borghi. She is a Master's student in Cultural Heritage Management at Johns Hopkins University and is doing an internship at the Chair collaborating on the Machu Picchu project, in particular to the digital storytelling aspect.
