Sustainable tourism - THE NOMINEES

Antagonisti di Melle

Company: Antagonisti di Melle

Two people started out to counteract depopulation in the small village of Melle (Cuneo, approx. 200 inhabitants). Now they are a group of 15-18 young people who have created opportunities for work, future and tourism: they opened a pub (Officina Antagonisti), a hostel (in 2019 with two rooms, in July 2020, an entire building) and an ice cream parlour, and planted a vegetable garden. They have done all this because they wanted to face the challenge to do business in a small mountain village. Contrary to the common tendency, they refused to leave their village in search of a job. The only way to stay was to create employment opportunities, and that's how their story began.
