Joint initiative by Vasco Errani, Renzo Tondo and Luca Zaia, Presidents of Emilia Romagna, Friuli Venezia Giulia and Veneto. After the earthquake that recently struck Northern Italy, the three governors wish to reassure Italian and foreign tourists on the safety of their holidays and the continuing quality of the local tourist hospitality system, which remains a true guarantee of Italian excellence, and invite them to enjoy a quiet and peaceful holiday on the coasts of the Upper Adriatic.

 

Mr Errani, Tondo and Zaia share the preoccupations expressed by all tourist operators of the Upper Adriatic, and draw attention once again to their hospitality offer, which remains at the highest levels of competitiveness, safety and appeal in all resorts of Emilia Romagna, Veneto and Friuli.

 

As Vasco Errani, President of Emilia Romagna, declares: “Most of Italy’s tourist industry is concentrated in the area of the Upper Adriatic. By now the summer season has started, and the resorts of Emilia Romagna, Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia are, as always, ready to welcome guests from all over the world. We have a message for all those visitors who every year choose the beaches of Emilia Romagna, Veneto and Friuli for their holidays. Some parts of Italy have recently been struck by a terrible disaster, but our coasts have not been affected, and as always are fully equipped and ready to welcome all those guests from Italy and abroad wishing to spend their holidays with us. All communication routes, including roads, motorways and airports, are open.”

 

“Our hoteliers and all other operators of the tourist branch,” adds Renzo Tondo, President of Friuli, “are hard at work with their usual skills, tenacity and great professionalism to guarantee the first-class hospitality that has always distinguished us, ensuring that once again our guests will receive the high-quality holidays to which they are accustomed.”

 

Luca Zaia, President of Veneto, continues: “We launch an appeal to our foreign guests to continue to visit us, to avoid us being unjustly penalized, which would add further damage to that already existing. Tourism is one of the main industries of the Upper Adriatic, and has significant effects on our economic indicators. The best way to help those who are suffering today is for our foreign guests to continue to choose our holiday resorts, confident that here they will find a safe and enjoyable welcome. As always.”
