Study on the potentialities of tourism sector, based on the accommodation needs resulting from the presence of the Lyon-Turin new railway link

Implementing partner: Province of Turin

Geographical area: Susa Valley (Italy)

 

Aim of the Pilot Action
The main aim of the pilot action is to propose, identify and implement, through a field work, a set of actions and tools to meet the residential needs of the workers employed in construction sites of the Lyon-Turin new railway link. At the same time, the action tends to favor the recovery and enhancement of the local building heritage to be used for long-term tourism.
The pilot action specifically aims at the definition of residential needs and welfare services of workers, while defining the potentials of the local accommodation system.
The pilot action supports local authorities and policy makers, providing indications and methods to define a plan of territorial offer. The information gathered allow to define the objectives, priorities and actions that can be planned and implemented in the short, medium and long term. For the short and medium term the information gathered relate to the interventions of adaptation and enhancement needed to make the system of territorial offer (accommodation, catering and welfare services) usable by enterprises and workers engaged in construction sites.
In the long term the indications relate to the strategies to adapt the so defined territorial offer to the future tourism demand. The intervention focus on the redevelopment and enhancement of the public and private buildings and to a better utilization of services and resources in the territory of the Susa Valley (tourism, mobility and transport, natural heritage, culture, leisure, etc.).

Achievements/Results
This pilot action achieved a forecast of staff employed in the construction sites of the international section of the Lyon-Turin new railway link and the related needs for accommodation solutions, as well as an esteem of the current accommodation system of the territory of the Susa Valley and, in particular, in municipalities near the construction sites. This analysis includes a census on existing buildings, leading to the identification of the ones that can be subject to requalification and renovation to meet the needs expressed in terms of number of beds and meals.
The activities have identified a group of seven municipalities considered “area of primary interest” in relation to the location of the construction sites. The accommodation facilities of this area have been grouped and ranked according to their distance from the working site. This made it possible to identify accommodation solutions within a distance of 20 minutes from each site, which is the time considered acceptable for workers to reach the working site form their residence (according to the national legislation).
Finally the Pilot Action deepens the studies on the possibility of re-use of currently unused buildings. A case study is the recovery of the former military building “Caserma Cascino” in Susa, aimed at converting it into a hosting facility for workers of the construction site. The project includes also its future conversion in residential housing when the construction sites will no longer be active.

Outputs 
This Pilot Action achieves the following outputs:
Study on the potentials of the tourism sector, the accommodation and the tourist hospitality system in the Susa Valley. The output is mainly addressed to regional and local decision-makers (Municipalities, Province, Region), small and medium enterprises (hotels, bars, restaurants, self-services), trade unions, contractors and enterprises, public and private organizations, potential investors of the project, the military property administration, the Territorial House Agency of the Province of Turin and, in general, to agencies and entities associated with these target groups. The output takes into account, among others, the two studies already carried out by the Piedmont Region and the Province of Turin:

  • analysis of the potential accommodation of the workers in the towns of Bussoleno, Chiomonte, Giaglione, Mattie, Monpantero, Susa and Venaus;
  • proposal for the conversion of the Caserma Cascino di Susa.
