The project

In the last decades of the twentieth century, it was a common belief that the Alps were meant for a mass tourism based on urban values and facilities (blocks of flats, holiday homes, pizzerias, cableways and ski-lifts, roads and car parks), soon to realize that the mountain is a fragile territory, unable to bear too much concrete in any form. Tourists coming from the plain do not seek the city they have just left, but silence, nature, experiences, relationships and exchanges.

They mostly look for difference.

In the Alps it is more evident than elsewhere that a mass tourism is anything but wise and responsible. A “sweet” tourism highlights the differences and peculiarities of each “Luogo”, our places, from dialect to cuisine, from colours to scents, from landscapes to tastes. Il exchanges internal and external culture, it gradually integrates the visitor in the community, respecting its times, customs, rituals, and even imperfections.

“Sweet” means all this, and much more.

The “Sweet Mountains” network was created in 2014 in Turin, by the “Dislivelli” (differences in height) association, to promote places (our “Luoghi”) in the Alps that still believe and suggest mountain dressed as a mountain, tourists as guests, but not owners, mountain dwellers as hosts, guides, and friends.

Our “Sweet” places are committed to welcome tourists-travellers into the context of each valley.

Our “Sweet” places are peculiar planets watching the overall quality of the tourist trade.

Our “Sweet” places network with their satellites to offer the Alps to anyone who loves beauty and does not destroy it.

 

OUR MANIFESTO 

  1. no one visits the mountain to find the city again
  2. no one is entitled to bring the city to the mountains
  3. the traveller is not a commodity, but a person
  4. the mountain dweller is not a servant, but a host
  5. if the host and the guest do not talk to each other, they both lose
  6. sustainable tourism does not “eat” the mountain, it feeds it
  7. slowness is not a sacrifice, but a conquest
  8. the conscious traveller is curious, respectful, attentive
  9. mountains are neither a museum, nor a fun fair
  10. a “sweet” mountain is the only possible one.

 

OUR SUGGESTION

“Sweet Mountains” is primarily the idea of a mountain capable of having a future

“Sweet Mountains” is a network meant to unite and promote structures that believe in a sweet, light, and sustainable tourism in Italy and abroad

“Sweet”, because it cares about the respect of natural and human Alpine environment

“light” in the choice of activities and means of transportation, renouncing big infrastructure and noisy, polluting kinds of entertainment

“sustainable” for the territory, for mountain dwellers and for visitors, under the environmental, economical, and social point of view.
