On Wednesday 28 November at 16:30 Minister for Foreign Affairs Giulio Terzi will join President of Unioncamere Sicilia Giuseppe Pace at the foreign ministry in Rome to launch the new web portal “Sicilia 360°” an innovative instrument for the enhancement of the Sicilian tourist economy.
The portal responds to a need for new means for presenting what the region has to offer, since it is estimated that approximately 40% of Italian and 50% of foreign tourists make their travel plans and purchases by internet.
“Sicily 360°” has an international slant, offering economic and productive data linked with tourism and technological solutions allowing for maximum end user interactivity.
Journalists and camera operators interested in covering the event are asked to apply for accreditation by completing the interactive form available at the link http://mae.accreditationsystem.info/ITA/Indice.asp to which all required documentation can be attached in digital format.
If in exceptional cases it is not possible to complete the online accreditation procedure, applications in writing on company letterhead and signed by the director of the organisation concerned—indicating name, surname, date and place of birth, number of a valid ID document and qualification—should be sent by fax to the Press Office of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (tel. 063691.3432 fax 06.3691.2122).
Accredited members of the press will be admitted at the main entrance to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, left side, beginning at 16:00.
