Abstract

This paper outlines the evolution of automobile tourism in Italy in the 1920s and 1930s, that is, before the so-called mass tourism. The small number of vehicles per inhabitant seems to indicate that this phenomenon had limited importance; however, the situation changes relevantly when considering international tourist flows. During this period, in fact, the number of foreigners travelling to Italy by car grew progressively, leading to an improvement of roads and facilities for motor tourists. Furthermore, to sustain this trend, during the 1930s the government adopted new measures to encourage foreigners to visit Italy by car, also seeking to raise the country’s competitiveness in the international tourist market.
