Tourism 2020: 9 out of 10 Italians stay in Italy

The Coronavirus pandemic has paralysed various sectors of the world economy; in particular, the tourism industry has seen a sudden collapse and there is no prospect of a quick or easy recovery. This is a real short-circuit in one of the key sectors of the Italian economy, which generates around 13% of the national GDP, 15% of employment and over 40 billion euros in profits (source: World Travel end Tourism Council). Below are the most useful data for understanding the extent of the current crisis in the tourism sector in Italy (2020). Let’s ask ourselves: 1. how much money will Italy lose due to the tourism crisis? 2. where will Italians go on holiday? 3. how will tourism change after the Coronavirus?

Consumer confidence - PXR Italy

Falling consumer confidence: for Italians it’s already a crisis

“In your opinion, will you be better off in a year’s time than you are today?” was the question posed by PXR Italy to Italians in its latest survey on 17 June. The result is that more than 6 out of 10 people (64.3%) do not have confidence that their economic situation will improve in 2021. Moreover, 6 out of 10 Italians think that the Conte government is not able to restart the Italian economy (source: PXR Italy); in general, in Italy there is a climate of distrust towards the future. Let’s ask ourselves: what is the point of knowing consumer sentiment and confidence?

Fake News - PXR Italy

Fake news: 6 out of 10 Italians do not know how to recognise them

“Do you think you know how to recognise fake news on the web?” was the question asked by PXR Italy to Italians in its latest survey on 10 June. The result is that almost 6 out of 10 people (57.4%) believe they do not know how to recognise fake news; this figure reveals a certain awareness on the part of Italians of their ‘weakness’ to fake news. But let’s ask ourselves: 1. why is fake news a serious problem? 2. how many Italians actually know how to recognise fake news?
