Editorial of April

There is no “sustainability” without freedom. There is no “sustainability” without identity, resilience and creativity. There is no “sustainability” without ethics and affectivity, knowledge and reflection, local economy and citizenship. If we cannot form a truly sustainable system, we want to move in that direction. We want to, and we can.

In the era of Big Data, less is definitely more. Rota Vicentina is not just a network of trails or even a destination, an Association or a community and sustainable tourism project. Rota Vicentina is a whole system of integrated communication between locals and visitors, governors and other stakeholders, which seeks to provoke small tensions, which in turn stimulate the concerted search for paths that best meet the various challenges. A difficult task, but possible with everyone’s contribution.

That’s why this blog is born. First of all, we want to “dry up the sea of information” about Rota Vicentina that we find on the web.

On the one hand, we recognize the importance of gathering independent information and opinions, and we want to bring this content to the “official” limelight, allowing us to reinforce, disagree, add, correct or simply update.

On the other hand, we want to cement a space for – as a living, multifaceted system – creating relevant content for information, reflection, dialogue and inspiration.

We do it for this region, for its community, for the tourists and operators, but also for the Rota Vicentina’s team. We are professionals and attentive and interested citizens, and we want to open this window to the world.

Articles, chronicles and opinions, interviews, podcasts, clipping, videos.. .everything fits in this blog, which complements a website as big as Rota Vicentina, that we have arranged in this new platform also to present you relevant information, clean, practical, reliable and easy to access.

Welcome to the new Rota Vicentina's Blog! We hope to count on you on this journey!
