Born in January 2015 and quickly identified as the online hub for cultural tourism focused on craftsmanship, Italian Stories is now ready to face a new challenge by opening a section dedicated exclusively to international tour operators and travel agencies.
The ever-growing demand for immersive and experiential tourism , the need to offer authentic and innovative activities also in little-known destinations , are the macro trends of the tourism industry on which Italian Stories has developed its products.
A great assortment of very different activities available along the whole Stivale , from Bolzano to Lecce, from Venice to Enna, all of which characterized by the authenticity of the experience. The craftsman , as seasoned local ambassador, will guide travelers during the tours inside the lab and assist them during the hands-on workshops where the visitor himself becomes the main protagonist , creating in first person his unique keepsake.
Three different types of experiences are available on Italian Stories:
• Visit _ guided tour of the lab took by the artisan that will show the space while explaining the manufacturing process. To visit together with the artisan his working space, to be told by his voice and see directly how the creations are handcrafted, is a unique and unforgettable experience.
• Hands-on workshop _ guided experience with the craftsman in his lab, to test the visitor’s creative and manual skills. This kind of activity allows people to learn the traditional skills directly from the talented local artisan, understand the culture and thus enriching the holiday with the testing of the manufacturing secrets.
• Special _ guided tour took by the local artisan in order to discover the territory. A unique and unconventional immersion in the real “well-made” in Italy, where visitors will be guided by the artisan, interpreter and ambassador of the secrets of the traditions, culture and folklore of the selected destination.
