-the availability of some buildings not inhabited, in particular places related to historical memory, suitable for a renovation for tourism

-the need of professional management is not standard, but flexible and dynamic able to customize services and times depending on the various needs.

-the possibility to locate the central structure for the reception in a central position to the rooms and still nearby and easily accessible, while also providing other rooms in stable neighbors who do not fall more than 200 meters from the main.
