Initiatives for our students

EXCURSION TO BIENNALE ARTE (Venice)

On Friday, May 24, 2024 some students had the opportunity to visit the Venice Art Biennale. The fieldtrip is offered within the teaching of Arts and Museum Resources, held by prof. Raffaella Pulejo, which aims to stimulate in students an awareness of the cultural background of managing tourism projects involving the arts 

The theme of the Biennale Arte is "Foreigners everywhere", which is not only topical but also interprets in the various world pavilions the current geopolitics read through the keys of the lesser known artists from the countries of the global south or the indigenous communities of the various continents.

Crossing Venice to get to the Biennale was equally meaningful for our students to read the complexity of tourism in this very special city.

EXCURSION TO CRESPI D'ADDA

Within the course Heritage Studies and ICT held by prof. Rossana Bonadei and our visiting professor Sanja Iguman, on March 8th 2023, students could participate to a very interesting excursion to the village of Crespi d'Adda. The initiave has been replicated during a.y. 2023/2024.

The Villlage of Crespi d'Adda (Crespi Workers' Village) is an entire town, built by the owner Cristoforo Benigno Crespi, for his workers and their families.

The UNESCO Committee for the World Heritage entered Crespi d'Adda in the World Heritage List in 1995, as an "extraordinary example of the phenomenon of the worker's villages, the most complete and best preserved of south Europe."

A BOOK DEDICATED TO OUR STUDENTS - TOURISM FACING A PANDEMIC. FROM CRISIS TO RECOVERY
copertina

This collection of papers has been written by the international team of scholars teaching at the Master Course in Planning and Management of Tourism Systems of the University of Bergamo, while the Covid-19 emergency was spreading in all parts of the World and especially in the territory of Bergamo.
The main aim of the work is to face the topic of Tourism in the case of exogenous shocks, like the Covid-19 pandemic, reflecting on their impacts on territories, communities and heritage both during and after the crisis. The papers adopt different disciplinary approaches and methods, trying to give a multi-focused gaze to the complexity of a global phenomenon and to possible forms of recovery.
This collection is addressed to students and researchers studying in the tourism sector, who are in search of answers in this time of change and crisis. We believe that after reading this volume they won’t have all the answers to their dilemmas, but they will reflect about them, they will receive proposals for specific approaches, methodologies, sources, references, examples, useful for the future of their own research.
