Abstract

In recent decades, tourism has undergone profound transformations that have disconnected it from the meaning of mere use of natural, artistic and cultural resources. In a broader sense, it assumes the connotation of authentic experience, increasingly oriented to the rediscovery of culture, history, local traditions, but also and above all of values and the search for health and well-being. In this context, development policies aim, increasingly, to various forms of tourism including the so-called Social and Sustainable Tourism.The term social tourism usually means a tourism inclined not only to the economic and functional needs of its users, but also to the deepening of human relationships and the need of sociality. Under the label of Sustainable Tourism there are different qualifications (eco-compatible, integrated, solidarity), which express a single concept by which we generally mean the protection of the environment, but also tourism attentive to the plurality of interests and to the development and enhancement of local history, cultures and traditions. From this perspective, the concepts of social and sustainable tourism tend to intertwine. The overlap between the two concepts identifies in the slow city a model of convergence of these principles and a basis for the development of forms of tourism that meet these needs and so for the development of social and sustainable tourism. In this framework, the paper looks at the slow city model and particularly at the activities implemented in it, above all in relation to this forms of tourism.In recent decades, tourism has undergone profound transformations that have disconnected it from the meaning of mere use of natural, artistic and cultural resources.
