Presentazione del volume

This work is composed of three papers in which the author seeks to highlight the different aspects of tourism that have appeared in a unique and impactful way at the beginning of the twentieth-first century: the sustainability of the development of tourism; a new typology of tourism, eco-tourism; a new way to govern tourism summed up by the words: "Think global. Act local".
