Dear sea lovers and beachfront facility managers,
Today, inspired by an article by Alex Giuzio, Chief Editor of Mondo Balneare, we delve into the current situation and shed light on the trends and challenges awaiting the industry.
A Year Lost
The Meloni government promised clarity and stability in beach concessions, but one year after taking office, we are still awaiting a definitive solution. This lack of certainty has sown confusion in the sector, jeopardizing beach businesses and suppliers of industry-specific furniture and equipment.
The debate over the fate of beach concessions has often centered on the dispute between proponents of bidding processes and defenders of the continuity of existing concessions. However, the picture is more complex.
Beaches, though on public land, are essentially private businesses. Therefore, any potential expropriation must take into account their value and ensure fair compensation. At the same time, the frequently mentioned Bolkestein Directive does not aim to “liberate the beaches” but rather to replace current managers with new ones.
Towards a Sustainable Future
Italy’s coastlines, with their 7500 kilometers of beauty, urgently need a modern regulatory overhaul. Legislation that transcends outdated rules and aligns with ecological challenges of the present, including the consequences of climate change on our precious coastline.
