Abstract

The modern life is dominated by fast: from fast food to sms, from speed dating to the high speed train, from zapping to tourism touch and go. In parallel, there is the need to return to manage life with more contact with nature and with others. As a reaction to a world that is fast, various movements have been born to counter this and to enhance the slowness: slow food, slow cities, slowUp, slow shopping, slow work, slow travel, slow medicine, slow marketing, slow sex, down shifting. Slow tourism is a way of life or to organize the tourist experience. This paper summarizes some aspects of the slow tourism developed with the project Slow Tourism, a strategic project funded under the European programme for cross-border cooperation Italy-Slovenia 2007-2013.
