Alarm cry also from San Marino. “Between cancellations, postponements, indecisions, between those who had to leave and those who no longer leave the sector is even more troubled”, he says Luca Ruco, responsible Cto – San Marino Organized Tourism Committee. “The fourth wave is now unbridled, while we are already losing German and Austrian tourists, in addition to all of Eastern Europe and since last week they are also canceling Italian groups, all given more by uncertainty than by fear,” he adds.
Just a month ago, he informs, there were 70 million Christmas reservations of which 35 million Italians alone: ”Today cancellations already amount to 3 million Italians and foreigners have almost disappeared, while 16 million Italians who were ready to book and more than half already booked are” frozen “, waiting for understand what direction the fourth wave will take. Obviously what will be individual will be proximity tourism and above all the market, therefore almost everything disintermediate. It seems to live inside a dead-end tunnel“.
The Cto San Marino, which in October had a climate of confidence and a prosion to leave rather, now corrects the shot – that the government takes urgent relief from the side of the liquid assets, because I see it becoming more and more complicated for traders to resist such huge losses. Operators who, I recall, have over 400 families and have an annual turnover of 162 million in the historic, now reduced to just under 20 million ”.
