Only 34% of Italian families vacationing, study says


(ANSA) - Rome, August 8 - Only about 34% of Italian families
are taking a vacation this summer because of the economic
recession that has engulfed the eurozones's third-largest
economy, according to data released by Italian consumer group
Federconsumatori on Wednesday.
Rosario Trefiletti and Elio Lannutti, joint chiefs of the
association, said that they had doubts that many Italian
families would be able to enjoy the holidays they deserve since
fresh data they have available from the tourism industry show
that only between 33% to 34% of Italian families can manage to
take a holiday.
This summer is an "evident decline from the already
negative figures of 2011," Trefiletti and Lannutti said.
They added that while this will generate some benefits for
those already vacationing, citing increased quality of services
and strong discounts, it was also necessary to "give the economy
a jolt" and the current situation is "strongly conditioning
family spending and changing their behaviour and their
conditions for the worse".
