The open-air sector (campsites, holiday residences, holiday villages, green spaces) is in constant development throughout Italy. Over the last ten years, open-air accommodation facilities have undergone a radical transformation.
The campsite has become a miniature "city" where we find grocery stores, shops selling toys and games, sports and leisure equipment, sanitary equipment, etc., and we are sure to find bars, restaurants, pizzerias, discotheques, swimming pools, sports and recreation facilities. The better equipped facilities, which are becoming more and more frequent, now also provide swimming pools, beauty centres and sauna, Turkish bath and hydromassage, in addition to retail terraces and a wide range of food and beverage outlets.
FAITA, which has been actively serving the industry for over 50 years, is the most important reference organisation for open-air accommodation facilities and tourism, bringing together almost one-half of all facilities.
The Association, which publishes CAMPING MANAGEMENT, the sector's only professional trade journal with a distribution exceeding 3 000 copies, operates with all the means deemed useful to promote and propagate the open-air holiday lifestyle.
