IT.A.CÀ migrants and travellers, the first and only festival of responsible tourism, stops off in Bologna from May 23rd to  29th,  2016 with events focused on the relation between social innovation and tourism: conferences, workshops, meetings with book authors, movies, shows and, of course, walking and bike tours in Bologna and surroundings.

I.TA.CA Bologna - cover pieghevole 2016Among the various places that host the festival this year two have been recently renovated and have become places where people gather, innovate and  produce culture:  Le Serre dei Giardini (The Greenhouses of the Margherita Gardens), reopened last year by the Kilowatt Association, and Dynamo – La Velostazione di Bologna (Bologna Bike Station) run by the Salvaiciclisti Association. Other places where events will take place are the result of innovative projects such as the We_Bologna Hostel or Kinodromo; both promote local culture through their creatively designed spaces.

These places host the most interesting events of the festival, such as the movies at Kinodromo @ Europa Cinema (on Monday 23rd  ); movie and forum on Migrants, migration policies and  media: are we the ones who trace the borders? at Dynamo (on Tuesday 24th ); the international conference Cities for people: place making and place branding on the relation between city branding strategies and the participation of local commuties , which will be held in Cappella Farnese inside the City Hall – Palazzo d'Accursio (on Friday 27th ).

Contest “Adopt a tourist”
The contest, thought up and organized by Ecobnb  (ecobnb.it) in collaboration with IT.A.CÀ, is based on quite an easy idea: everybody can offer their own idea of hospitality, for instance a dinner with local products at their home, a walking or bike tour in the city or in the countryside, a visit to their farm. The only rule to follow is eco sustainability, in other words the offers have to respect the environment.
You have time until May 26th, the day of the prize-giving, to publish your offer on  www.adottaunturista.org  and to vote for the most original and interesting idea by giving it a like. The prize for the three with the most votes will be a weekend for two persons in wonderful eco sustainable accommodation.

IT.A.CÀ is a travelling festival that this year stops off in  Rimini (18 - 22 May), Bologna (23-29 May), Ferrara (30 e 31 May), Parma (30 May- 5 June), Reggio Emilia (10-11 June),  Trento (3 - 9 October).
IT.A.CÀ is organized and promoted by the Yoda Association, COSPE Onlus, NEXUS E–R in collaboration with AITR (Associazione Italiana Turismo Responsabile) and a network of more than 200 tourist facilities.
