The Albergo Diffuso concept
Many small towns and villages are reviving their heritage through various forms of innovative tourism, such as Italy’s successful model of the Albergo Diffuso
The Albergo Diffuso, an innovative concept of hospitality, was launched in Italy in the early 1980s as a means of reviving small, historic Italian villages and town centres off the usual tourist track. Translated into English as ‘scattered hotel’, it consists of a hotel that is not in a single block, but is converted out of various historic buildings in a small community.
