13th national edition of IT.A.CÀ, the Responsible Tourism Festival. Migrants and Travelers. The event is an invitation to experience the joy of travel through different forms of sustainable tourism.

There are many events designed to promote places and social, environmental and economic awareness. Among the topics are landscape enhancement, eco mobility, universal accessibility, urban regeneration, cultural promotion, migration, green innovation and slow tourism. While the main focus of this edition is the right to breathe. A current and transversal concept of breath as a right, as well as a need. Breathing can be difficult when sick, but also in polluted cities, chasing frenetic rhythms, working in apnea.
Lucca and the Piana area also participate in the festival. After a year and a half of suffocating and tragic pandemic, the places return to breathe through culture, history, vocation and tourism.
Fundraising for Solidarity Tourism at IT.A.CÀ to donate a contribution for the proposed association initiatives.
