The pathology of urbanization without criteria or measures, connected to unspecified reasons tourism, which retain only the meaning of terminology has led the Italian news in some respects and the case for others to deal with those now commonly and sadly are known as ecomostri (eye-sores) . An effective tourism policy can be a powerful lever for sustainable development, or even a tool for sustainable tourism landscape transformed into a landscape of decay.
