Città dei Motori, five webinars dedicated to the tourism promotion of the territories

A series of five webinars dedicated to the tourism promotion of the territories and designed for the 26 municipalities of the national network began on Wednesday, the 12th of July. This is what the city of Maranello proposes in the coming weeks as part of the Rete Nazionale Città dei Motori project, in collaboration with the Cerform training institute and the network of professionals of Gruppo LEN.

These are five webinars (interactive online seminars) addressed to operators of the twenty-six Italian municipalities that are part of the Città dei Motori network and who are interested in the tourism promotion of the territory. The participation is also open to people who have attended the Benvenuto Turista courses organized for the operators of Maranello, Fiorano, Formigine and Sassuolo in the last few months. In essence, during the webinars people will be able to connect to a virtual classroom to follow the live seminars, with the possibility to interact with the speaker and ask questions. Each meeting will also be recorded and will be available for online consultation after about a week.

The first one was held on Wednesday, the 12th of July, while the others will take place by the end of the month. The seminars will focus on actions to enhance the thematic tourism itineraries. Among the topics addressed there are: territorial marketing, design and creation of a tour itinerary, the involvement of travel bloggers, widespread digital museums, holiday farms, territorial storytelling.

The project "Rete Nazionale Città dei Motori", co-funded by the Decree of 31/12/2010 of the Minister of Tourism, brings together highly representative institutions from the national motoring world: 26 municipalities, 2 provinces, 2 associations and 3 museums. It is a new opportunity, in line with the latest trends in tourism, in order to offer a complete and rewarding experience for a wide audience of motor culture enthusiasts in our country. The project aims, indeed, at enhancing Italy as a cradle of absolute excellence in this sector, well-known around the world in terms of technology, design and people who have contributed to the technical and aesthetic development of one of the twentieth century revolutions such as car, motorcycle and, more generally, powered vehicles production.

Some of the ongoing or under development actions of the project are the Motor Web Museum (the innovative portal dedicated to Italian motor excellence), an app that will provide information on the municipalities in the network and an augmented reality project that will allow visitors to use smartphones and tablets, to enter a true story - made of images - of the tradition and of the motorcycle attractions.

News from the Network Città dei Motori

 

In Varano de 'Melegari (PR) Formula Sae Italy & Formula Electric Italy

Eighty-one teams representing over 70 universities for a total of 2,600 students from all over the world. They will be the protagonists of the Italian stop-over of the Formula Sae Italy & Formula Electric Italy, that reached its thirteenth edition, which will take place on the circuit of Varano de 'Melegari (Parma) from Wednesday the 19th to Sunday the 23rd of July.

Formula Ata is open to the participation of engineering students who are involved in the design and construction of a single-seater prototype racing car designed for hypothetical production, following specific technical and economic restrictions, as if it were actually commissioned by a company of the automotive sector for a final user.

The event, supported by Dallara and Gruppo FCA (present with the Abarth brand), is a challenge with eight trials to be overcome. The jury will first evaluate the theoretical part: presentation of the dedicated business plan, cost analysis and explanation of the design used. Subsequently, the cars will face the challenge on the track by testing acceleration, autocross, skid pad, fuel consumption and durability. It is not just a competition between tomorrow's engineers but above all an opportunity to connect the world of work and some young talents, eager to make themselves known.
