The German Health Minister and Italy: "Tourism without a future".  The halt of Santanche

«I thank the German Minister of Health for choosing Italy as a tourist destination, which has always been the favorite destination for his compatriots for holidays and, of course, we look forward to welcoming him again in the future. We are aware of the climate change underway and which, I remind you, does not concern only southern Europe but the whole planet, so much so that the strategic plan for tourism places sustainability as one of the central assets and an essential tool for the development and growth of the sector. A strategy that will allow us to make the Italian tourist offer welcoming and sustainable 365 days a year. However, we are certain that the Germans will continue to appreciate Italian holidays more and more».

Thus the Minister of Tourism Daniela Santanchè responds to the statements of the German Minister of Health Karl Lauterbach on a visit to Emilia-Romagna and Tuscany. Lauterbach a few days ago, posting a photo of the basilica of San Francesco in Siena on social media, wrote: «A beautiful medieval building but also a cold room. Churches should be open during heat waves as cold rooms during the day to offer protection." In another tweet, the German minister had also taken a position in favor of the siesta, which is being discussed a lot in these hours in Germany, explaining: «A siesta in the heat is certainly not a bad suggestion. Employers and employees should negotiate this themselves. It would be medically useful for many professions." And before that, referring to a visit to the Bologna area: «If things continue like this, these holiday destinations will have no long-term future».
