And the testimony of the love of Jesus Crucified in Castiglione not remain confined to works of art handed down from fathers and preserved in churches or shrines of the City Museum, but live and relive outdoors, especially in the streets and squares of the town . Here on the evening of Tuesday and Wednesday of Holy Week (the outputs are provided at around 21) meander through the streets of the country Processions who want to recall respectively the arrest of Jesus and His scourging and the beginning of his passion. The first is organized by the Society of St. Anthony (white mantles), starting from the church of San Francesco, the second by the Compagnia della Misericordia (black capes) leaving the Church of the Good Death. As always, the people called the processions of “Christ taken in the Garden” and “Christ at the Column” and they, for the most spectacular and mysterious coincidence, remember the arrest of Christ, on the night between Tuesday and Wednesday during the which probably took place. On Good Friday, always at around 21, is scheduled to be even more solemn Procession of the Dead Christ and Our Lady of Sorrows. In this case, the procession is organized by the Society of Jesus (blue caps), starting from the famous and beautiful church of Jesus which stands beside the Cathedral.

The scourge of illegal harm both consumers and tour operators.

The scourge of illegal harm both consumers and tour operators.

Calendar

Harms consumers and at the same time affects companies operating within the law. We are talking of unauthorized in the field of tourist accommodation. The past few months have been marked by a severe economic crisis that still threatens to seriously trouble the entire industry. For the future, therefore, necessary to establish common strategies to support the entire sector. Starting out, too, the struggle against the “irregular”. Struggle, which should all contribute. Since the public, sponsors of the laws. Also because the scourge of illegal on the one hand causes damage to the holders of authorized companies that are seen to thin their incomes, and other tricks the tourist. Enough, in fact, go on the internet and start browsing. After writing the magic words like “vacation” and “campaign” pages begin to rattle off names of names. The result? Be faced with a list where there may be dozens of names practically unknown to any list local and regional level. Unfair competition, therefore, that penalizes those who are enrolled in the appropriate regional registers and other risks creating disruptions to tourists and damage the image of the tourist. And this is a luxury that neither Italy nor Castiglion Fiorentino you can afford. “Urge a crackdown – continues the Association – to protect both the consumer and trade associations.” Tourism in Italy, accounting for 9% of GDP. 2.2 million people employed, ie a worker in ten. A base on which to strengthen the sector but also to revive an economy in recession for too many months. We also believe Piero Gnudi, Minister of Tourism of the Government Monti, who in recent days has shown the “Strategic Plan for Tourism Development.” But the seven guidelines laid down by the Minister Gnudi, these include the upgrading of the accommodation sector, they could be in vain if there are still those who eludes the rules. “The tourist who arrives in our facilities – adding members dell’AOTC – Is followed step by step. We put our expertise at your service for ‘confezionargli’ an unforgettable stay. ” This means creating “tourist products” appealing from start to finish with a view to retention. “We need a system – continue – we need the cooperation of all sectors, from food to fashion, culture and territory.” Events such as the BIT in Milan, in the program in the next few days, or other local initiatives, such as the 17th edition of the “Fair Play” program in Castiglion Fiorentino next July, must become an important showcase for the support ‘ tourist offer. We must never forget that “the hospitality industry – said Lidia Castellucci President AOTC – As well as contributing significantly to boost the local economy is an excellent vehicle for the promotion of agro-food production in the region. ”
