Promoting return tourism

Benevento’s mayors were brought together by the President of the Destinazione Sud Network, Michelangelo Lurgi, in the municipality of San Lorenzello to sign memoranda of understanding. They also discussed initiatives aimed at promoting return tourism for Italians abroad who intend searching for their roots.

“Relaunching the image of Italy” 

Also present were the President of the Province of Benevento, Nino Lombardi, the Mayor of Benevento, Clemente Mastella, and the Senator of the Italian Republic, Sandra Lonardo, who has always been active in the development of the area.  “We are relaunching the image of Italy and promoting investments, - said Michelangelo Lurgi. - The municipalities are invited to promote their cultural, productive and enogastronomic excellence, thus enhancing their potential.”

Bringing small towns together with positive results

The mayor of Benevento, Clemente Mastella, said the project is a concrete example of how it is possible to bring small towns to work together with positive results. “From the point of view of tourism, we have to improve connections with the Sannio and Benevento area. We must use the Pnrr (The Italian National Recovery and Resilience Plan Ed) for mobility, making the area more accessible by road and rail connections.”
