How tourists will travel in the next future? Where will they sleep? Which kind of experiences will they look for? Tourism is a strong field of economy around the world and it became nowadays the most advanced trial sector of the experimental economy, of the technological innovation used for public transportation and for entertainment, of the sharing economy and of architecture.

The book called “Futurismi” written by Martha Friel, programme manager of the scientific area dedicated to “Tourism and Territory” of the Research Centre Silvia Santagata (CSS-EBLA) and by Armando Peres, President of the Tourism Committee (OCSE), tells what tourism has been and which are the huge economic, social and technological changes that are transforming it: from new theme parks, cases with wheels, cruise ships, gaming in the museums, airbnb to the using of datas to manage tourism flows that direct their choices.

These transformations, that regardig also tourists consumption, come to light some challences in terms of innovation for countries and territories in order to help them to arise in a market always more full of new ideas that push us to wonder how tourists will travel in the next future.
