Two young graduates rethought the way of traveling and tourism in the days of Covid-19. For an Italy to rediscover
Covid-19 has profoundly changed many habits, the way we relate to people, the way we conceive going out with friends, how to rethink holidays and travel.
We have not stopped dreaming or even imagining the well-deserved summer holidays, but, perhaps, for the next few months the management of travel will be more local, with destinations more affordable for everyone, often a few kilometers from home. Because you can also travel very close to your residence: it is not said that travel should be understood only over long distances.
The Italian Trotter
Here is the story of two young, very enterprising young people, Elena Pasero and Valerio Dogliotti, both graduated from the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Pollenzo. In recent years they have visited and lived in various countries around the world, worked in hospitality and catering. Now they have decided to return to Italy and create a project to promote the Italian and Piedmontese territory: to provide guests with a tailor-made experience, sustainable travel solutions, bringing them to know the local indigenous realities.
With a few clicks food and wine tourism and sustainability enter into symbiosis, giving life to the dream trip. A holiday linked to the culture of good food and agri-food products, the flavors of local cuisine, wines and local delicacies. Stays in breathtaking structures and exclusive castles, direct contact with sought after local producers, author chefs and rediscovery of regional identity traditions. Taste experiences in starred restaurants, family restaurants and gourmet picnics; educational workshops and farmers markets, village festivals and gastronomic fairs.
The Italian Trotter – your foodie dream tour it is all this, and not only. A trip organized with The Italian Trotter is not seen only more as a holiday, but as a memorable event, which allows you to learn new skills having fun and giving value to the territory visited.
The itineraries are aimed at the foreign market, especially the US market, but this year, due to the pandemic, they had to look for a way to reinvent themselves and rethink their business.
It was not easy, they rolled up their sleeves and created several ad hoc travel packages aimed at Italian tourists to rediscover all the beauties that Piedmont has to offer. The promotion of exclusive itineraries in the Langa and Monferrato, territories often unknown even by the Piedmontese themselves.
The packages can be viewed on the Italian Trotter website.
