Who We Are

We are a team of passionate professionals striving to transform the impact of the tourism industry.

We have pioneered an innovative model leveraging marketing & communication, digitization, and social innovation to make tourism more enjoyable for tourists and more beneficial for the local community, economy and heritage.

Our pilot in Venice has led to an increase in retention of tourism revenue locally, and a change in visitors’ experience, mindsets, and behaviors. It helps residents benefit more from tourism and contribute to preserving and regenerating the local cultural and natural heritage.
Our model has been underlined by prestigious social innovation competitions and we have the honor to have shared our experience with government and industry representatives, media, and accademia.

Our commitment to transforming the tourism industry into a driver of sustainable development started in 2015. when Valeria Duflot and Sebastian Fagarazzi identified a need for a tourism that truly benefits visitors and residents.

We share our methodology, tools, and experience to leverage what we learnt making an impact locally in Venice, Italy and contribute to the global transformation of tourism

Our start

While living in Venice, Italy, the city that might be the poster child of the negative impact of tourism, Valeria Duflot, and Sebastian Fagarazzi were observing how the city was emptying itself of residents and how tourism was damaging the local way of life, culture and more.

In early 2015, while they were increasingly aware of the displacement created by mass tourism, they realized that if it would be easier for visitors to support the local population in Venice directly, then it would make a world of difference. This is what they set out to do with Venezia Autentica, a social enterprise that empowers visitors to have a better experience and helps local businesses benefit more from tourism while contributing to the preservation or regeneration of cultural and natural assets.

Since its inception, Venezia Autentica has helped over 150 artisans, and small businesses earn an estimate of over 3 million euros, as well as influenced the behavior and mindset of over 40 million people around the world.

This impact is something that the co-founders of Venezia Autentica are seeking to deepen and broaden through collaboration with entities all around the world. Hence Overtourism Solution, their effort to bring their learnings, tools, and methodologies to more destinations, communities and visitors, globally.

Who we are today

Overtourism Solution is the new initiative with which the co-founders of Venezia Autentica are looking to transfer their unique, on the ground experience, of creating a more beneficial tourism in Venice to destinations around the world.

By working with governments, institutions, corporations, schools, organizations, media, and any leader and entity looking to see tourism become a force for good, Overtourism Solution seeks to help transform the tourism industry as a whole.
