Welcome to Italy—we’re open for business. That’s the message Allison Scola wants to share in this episode of The Italian American Podcast.
With Coronavirus spreading throughout Italy and the world, we sit down with Scola, the founder, owner, and curator of Experience Sicily and the New York Cannoli Crawl (and 2019 New York Times Travel Show Expert) to get her thoughts on traveling to Italy in these uncertain times.
We’ll discuss the Italian government’s handling the outbreak, share tips for travelers who are experiencing trepidation as a result of the virus, and explore how the outbreak is set to affect both Italian and Italian-American tourism and business.
With a Sicily expert at the table, we look at “sustainable tourism,” the art of experiencing a taste of daily life in the host country, a concept that is at the center of the renaissance of southern Italian tourism.
In true Italian American Podcast style, the conversation can’t stay focused the entire time… so we’ll question what it truly means to be “Proud To Be Italian” in a global world, and spend an inordinate amount of time arguing about the many varieties and variances of cannoli… and just who makes the best one out there.
Join us as we experience Sicily with Allison Scola!
