abstract

Heritage is more easily communicated, reached and talked about in the digital age, a time in which the spreading of transport opportunities have eased and developed cultural tourism and CH tourism. But has this situation led to a more open dialogue between visitors and local stakeholders, to ensure the destinations’ heritage conservation and, generally speaking, their sustainability? Global English content extracted through a period of six months from three reputed content ‘curation’ platforms and the leading tourism community TripAdvisor about five Italian destinations – Bergamo, Catania, Matera, Siena and Trieste – seem to show that local stakeholders do not necessarily put the Web to good use to ensure their heritage conservation and, in the long run, their destinations’ sustainability.
