Protected natural areas are a strategic resource for health and well-being and for overcoming the fragility of the territory, and they can also be an occasion for the Italy to restart. The conference will discuss with Federparchi and the Italian nature protected areas how the paradigms of nature conservation and sustainable design of the territory are essentials, considering the changes that have occurred with the Covid-19 emergency. Tourism, as an integrated policy for conservation and development and enhancement of the landscape, is an opportunity for the revitalization of natural parks and protected areas and of the territory in various territorial contexts, marginal and urban.
