SEETIES Now we let ourselves be inspired by the birthday gift received from Barcelona, the city where CCT – 10 years ago – began its journey. A map of the world (in cork) on which to mark one’s steps, those already made but especially those still to accomplish. It says “LET’S TRAVEL THE WORLD” and today that’s our birthday seems like the perfect day to start dreaming of and planning new explorations, in search of many other stories to share… The perfect day to restart from here. #SeeCity #OneWorld – Love, CCTeam

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, a city that cultivates coexistence. “An infinite imagined garden, a place of beauty and multiculture in its human flowering, in its traces of epochs that overlap and stratify, all visible in a single building, all legitimised to exist beyond the imposed rules.” It’s how Stefania Rinaldi tells about, accompanying the photographs by Simone Ridi in this (true) story signed by the two co-founders of CUT – Circuito Urbano Temporano. #CCTravellers2018

PISTOIA is a city that more than others had fun over the centuries giving original, bizarre and extravagant names to its streets and alleys. For example: who knows the history of the white dog?! and who has ever noticed the bas-relief in stone that portrays, at the beginning of Via del Can Bianco, this curious local hero?! 🙂

LECCE Coppula Tisa è un’associazione di turismo responsabile, con sede a Tricase, che si occupa di tutelare il bene comune e la Bellezza del territorio. Siamo stati al Celacanto per conoscere la loro attività che, coinvolgendo i cittadini, fa scoprire ai viaggiatori il Salento che piace a noi, quello più autentico. Qui vi raccontiamo la loro storia!

ITALIA nel MONDO. Raíz italiana è un’Associazione che permette ai discendenti di emigrati italiani di rinsaldare un legame con le proprie radici. Abbiamo intervistato Marina Gabrieli, la Presidente, per capire meglio di cosa si tratta e scoprire le opportunità del cosiddetto “turismo delle radici” o “turismo genealogico”, un settore ancora emergente ma con grandi potenzialità!
