The 2023 edition consists of two volumes:
I. The present work is the first volume, illustrating medium-term trends and scenarios. It is the result of careful analysis and synthesis of the findings from research conducted in recent years. This comprehensive overview is enriched by contributions from international and national experts in the field, offering a thorough perspective on the evolution of Gastronomy tourism from different perspectives.
II. The second volume provides a detailed overview of the Italian demand situation. It includes an in-depth description of the profile of the Italian tourist (both generalist and food and wine-oriented), accompanied by statistical data that illustrate travel behaviour, choices made, and desired experiences.
Both volumes are available digitally, with the first distributed free of charge and the second available for purchase. By acquiring and/or organizing presentation events in the territory, it will be possible to support research activities for the coming years.
I extend my thanks to all those who have contributed to this work, the authors, and the collaborators who have made the publication of this research possible.
I wish everyone an enjoyable read.
