(ANSA) - ROME, FEBRUARY 17 - The decision to postpone the opening of the ski resorts will dramatically weigh on Italian white tourism: 12.4 million fewer tourists will generate lost revenues for the sector equal to over 9.7 billion euros, as emerges from a note from the Demoskopika Institute for the period from December 2020 to March 2021. At least 9,000 seasonal workers are at immediate risk.

From the president of Demoskopika, Raffaele Rio, an appeal to the Minister of Tourism Massimo Garavaglia: "Immediately adequate refreshments for the losses and revision of the Next Generation Italy, otherwise we will witness the season of de profundis of mountain tourism".

There are 5 winter tourist destinations that are most penalized: Trentino-Alto Adige, Piedmont, Valle d'Aosta, Lombardy and Veneto whose loss of tourist spending represents 86.2% of total Italian lost revenues, equal to 8.3 billion euros.

In detail, the white lockdown could generate a scissor cut in receipts equal to 3.2 billion euros for Trentino-Alto Adige, 2 billion for Piedmont, 1.3 billion for Valle d'Aosta, almost 1.1 billion for Lombardy and 886 thousand euros for Veneto.

The ordinance that has established the closure of the ski facilities until next March 5 risks, therefore, to definitively bring winter tourism to its knees, represented by 6,170 kilometers of slopes with about 1,800 ski lifts serving the ski areas that produce work for as many as 14,000 people. in addition to the related industries.

The average cost per capitestimata to support the skiing holiday is equal to 785 euros per person.

"The new Minister of Tourism, Massimo Garavaglia, who has rightly branded as an act of disrespect for workers the sudden decision not to reopen the sciences - specifies Rio - will not escape, in any way, that there are at least 9 thousand seasonal workers employed in the white tourism as well as at least another 5,000 hired for an indefinite period ".
