The TM Project was born some years ago and since then it has been the pillar of education in Tourism Studies. It allows young people to grow up and dozens of students have been having exciting experiences during their school years.
It develops a number high-level skills for future Tour Operators, tour guides, travel reporters, leading to a path to incentive an entrepreneurial mindset into the field of tourism, to the point that students may create a personal business idea (start-up) ready to be financed as soon as they get their diploma.
Loved and hated, further and contrasted, in these last years the TM project has kept on growing and has contributed to make young people grow, leading students to face unique experiences in the Italian school, preparing them to cope with the world of business or of university studies after the diploma with the skills competences required in today’s world.
This website aims to be a blog meant to tell the story of the project and let you know future initiatives. We hope soon it will also become a useful tool for tourism students to help them in their studies and growth.
On the 26th March, in the middle of the COVID storm, our principal Mr Garlati gave us the go-ahead to work on an application for an Erasmus + KA2 project amounting to the gigantic sum of 450.00 euros!
What a challenge was standing in front of us!! Everything had to be thought, organised and written within a month, only ONE month!! What’s more, when most European schools and offices were not operating because of the lock-down. Never surrender!!! We were strong-willed to pursue our objective, which originated from a light-bulb moment and a“simple” idea: …
The newborn Erasmus project "RARE R.O.U.T.E.S", needs a logo!
The students of the 5th year of the Amedeo Modigliani Liceo Artistico worked hard and came up with a series of impressive logos among which it has been difficult to choose!
Among the different ideas, 4 were selected as finalists. Between Monday February 15th and Wednesday 17th we will do a series of polls on the Instagram profile @travel_mamager_project to pick the winner.
Find out what inspired the artists and join in too!
Let's find …
After the students of the Modigliani Institute produced several possible and beautiful logos, among them the project team narrowed the choice to 4 (and this first selection was very difficult!).
Soon after on the Instagram account @Travel_Manager_Project two polls were carried out to choose among the 4 the 2 finalists. The final choice took place on 17th February 2021
And the winner is.... Matteo Beraldo!
Congratulations to the winner and to all the other students of the Modigliani Institute who have worked hard!
A great start for the Erasmus+ RARE ROUTES project with the kick-off meeting which was held on Google Meet on the 1st and 2nd of February. All the partners of the project were present at the meeting. For Mosè Bianchi in addition to the executive Guido Garlati and the administrative director Anna Labruna, the team who built RARE ROUTES: Norberto Giamberduca, Filena Spadavecchia and Loredana Chiasera attended the meeting.
Also an excellent participation by the ICEI teams with Simone Pettoruso and Francesca Menozzi and Betania with Monica and Fabrizio Pozzoli along with Annalisa Renzi.
The first training session for teachers and other trainers will start on March 24th on Google Meet, it will continue for a few meetings until the end of April.
The aim will be to provide specific and crucial knowledge for the development of responsible and sustainable tourism in local communities.
It will cover topics ranging from the definition of responsible and sustainable tourism to travel reports including the planning of responsible trips applying the "Travel Manager" method.
The course will be mainly held by …
Operating on a global level and with fair and solidary criteria, they are our perfect training company! We are happy that ICEI is helping and guiding us in the development of the Italian school program “Impresa Formativa Simulata” (IFS), which allows students to set up their own business supported by an experienced training company. Thanks to this program we intend to create the “Travel Manager” IFS, which will embrace the many skills and experiences that ICEI has to share with teachers and students participating in the project.
Along with ICEI, the Italian Association of Responsible Tourism could not be left out! We are honored that the TM project is supported by AITR. AITR has been working for several years to promote, qualify, disseminate, research, update and protect the cultural content and the resulting practical actions related to "responsible tourism". It promotes the culture and practice of Responsible Tourism travel and encourages knowledge, coordination and synergies among its many members.
To train future travel reporters and high-quality tourism advertisers, we needed a partner of excellence in graphics and design. Hence the collaboration with the IED of Milan, that will be responsible for proposing and managing courses in video making and web design. IED is a training system in evolution; a laboratory capable of thinking and rethinking with a clear and shared mission: to offer young with a creative mind a complete preparation, a "Culture of Design" that will go along with them throughout their lives. IED is much more than a School: it is a center where new generation professionals take shape. A hothouse of ideas that develops creativity through the offer of Post diploma, Master and Specialization courses.
