Preventing depopulation

The concept was developed by the Italian scholar Giancarlo Dall’Ara,

who defined AD as both an original model of hospitality and an approach

toward sustainability (Table 5.2).41 Scattered hotels, argues Dall’Ara, are healthy for the host villages, because they act as social, cultural

and economic stimuli. He calls them ‘drivers of development’ because

everything is sourced in the region, involving the residents and local

producers, thus preventing depopulation.
