The course is aimed at triennial or magistral graduates who intend to qualify in the field of cultural tourism, to be able to develop strategies for territorial development in support of public bodies or private companies. The Master’s course aims to train “Designers in Cultural Tourism of Territories“, high profile figures that will prepare the organic technical-legal legislation of cultural heritage and tourism, as well as in-depth cultural, economic-managerial and communication-information skills to enhance the resources that constitute the cultural heritage of particular territorial areas.

The “Designers” will be able to identify the strategic growth of tourism in the territory of reference, so as to be fully integrated in the processes of tourism enhancement in both public and private contexts.

The courses will deal with technical-juridical, cultural-communicative and economic-managerial issues, thanks to collaboration between the departments of Law, Political and International Studies, Humanities, Social and Cultural Affairs (DUSIC) and Economic and Business Sciences at University of Parma.
