Vento d’Italia is the digital platform designed for welcoming Chinese tourists in Italy, using their language and their favorite communication channel: the WeChat ecosystem. The project, promoted by Italian Lifestyle and supported by the Master of Tourism (Roma Tre University) and OmnitechIT, aims to highlight the Italian landscape and cultural heritage, both tangible and intangible, making it accessible to Chinese visitors through their mobile devices.
To make it possible, breaking down technological and interchange barriers, Vento d’Italia elaborates a culturally and linguistically localized communication, and develops technological architectures and software within the Chinese digital ecosystem. Moreover, considering Enogastronomy and Made in Italy as legitimate heirs of Italian historical-artistic traditions, Vento d’Italia offers visibility in the Chinese tourist market to the Italian excellences thanks to its own commercial sections. Furthermore, Vento d’Italia developed a MiniProgram, visible in Italy and in China, to allow visitors to book and directly purchase tickets and tourist services through a sophisticated geolocation service. The creative contents of Vento d’Italia, therefore, have the twofold objective of divulging the Italian artistic heritage, and recommending Italian excellences in a vibrant and unique way. The result is a full, engaging and authentic tourist experience.
In 2018 Vento d’Italia was awarded the recognition, during the national competition organised by MiBACT and Invitalia, to be among the 10 most innovative start-ups in the tourism sector, and gained the support of the Municipality of Rome, Milan, Florence and Turin.
