Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The article aims to analyze the significant space that disability and its inclusion have in the history of tourism in twentieth-century Italy. Starting from a review of the Italian legislation concerning the disabled and their inclusion in contemporary Italian society, we subsequently move on to consider the types of tourism that in the last century have enabled people with disabilities to travel in a safety context and relative tranquility. The heart of the article is the proposed case study: the summer colonies for children and young people hosted by the Institute of the Blind in Milan, with particular regard to the period of great changes from the mid-fifties to the mid-seventies. Through unpublished documents, the organization and the recreational aspect of young people in sea and mountain stays are analyzed.
