ITALY says to the World “everything will be all right” and on this page of our web guidezine we’ll keep collecting for you some positive postcards, moments of music and magic, life and beauty, shared from many balconies and windows of the Italian cities during the Coronavirus pandemic, while the whole country is in lockdown. #SeeCity & Love, CCTeam • #OneWorld #AndràTuttoBene

NEW YORK The Statue of Liberty. Times Square. The Empire State Building. The Brooklyn Bridge. The yellow cabs. Today everyone photographs the “classics” and shares with the whole world the photos on social media. So, what happens when every day, all day and from multiple angles, these symbolic places are photographed by everyone? If we put together those images, photos and videos, we could see the whole (hi)story of a place. “Typologies of New York City” is a 57-second video made exactly in this way, using 1.272 photos of the city found on Instagram, selected and combined in a coherent animation by creative Sam Morrison (@SamTheCobra on social media).

SEETIES In 2010, Erich Fisher used open data to create these maps. Tourist destinations, cities and places, change every year and it would be interesting to compare this visual research with an updated version. It would also be interesting to use these data and their visualisation to help mass tourism to spread in the territories with the mission on the one hand to make too touristy cities more liveable for citizens and on the other hand to promote places like suburbs, forgotten neighbourhoods or villages suffering from depopulation. “Tourists VS Locals” is becoming an increasingly important issue worldwide and we should learn to use creativity also to try to create possible solutions to this contemporary urban tension that someone call overtourism or tourismphobia. In this article you can browse through the gallery and discover more about “The Geotaggers’ World Atlas Maps – Locals & Tourists” project by data artist Eric Fisher.

PALERMO in four neighbourhoods that are not featured on many travel guides: Costa Sud, Danisinni, ZEN (Zona Espansione Nord) and Isola delle Femmine. Four places where buildings, villas and tourists disappear in favour of everyday life of Palermitans. Four short stories in the drawings and photos by Antoine Séguin & Iris Akram. #CCTravellers2018
