The goal of the initiative is to use and publicize the valuable audio-visual materials gathered in the process and digitalized through the Osservatorio Reggio Emilia - Cinema di Famiglia (Reggio Emilia Observation Post - Family Cinema) project (University of Modena and Reggio Emilia).

Images of Italy captured by tourists and travellers in the twentieth century: a preview of a new project for the production of a major exhibit on the theme of tourism, history and national identity. People choose to travel for different reasons and every one of these reasons confers a different vision and perspective to the films documenting their journeys. Today's viewers will be guided by the perspective of tourists and travellers of the past.

In collaboration with Home Movies as part of the 'I Reggiani, per esempio' (The citizens of Reggio Emilia, as an example) initiative.

A project by Home Movies Emilia Romagna / Archivio Nazionale del Film di Famiglia (National archive of the family film) and Relabtv – University of Modena and Reggio Emilia.
