Reception and Mediation in the Russian Tourism and Hospitality Sector – Executive Course

Russian tourism has been playing an important role in the Italian tourism industry for many years, thus contributing significantly to its economy. However, the Covid-19 pandemic and the conflict in Ukraine have hit this sector hard, generating a significant impact on the national economy and the coming of Russian-speaking tourists to Italy.
