Maybe you’ve seen the hashtag #invasionidigitali around in the last weeks. Well, it’s a very beautiful project organized by Fabrizio Todisco, the Italian travel bloggers network #iofacciorete, Instagram Italia, Officina Turistica and the network of Italian small museums.
The main goal of #invasionidigitali is to promote the Italian Cultural Heritage, that is one of the greatest in the world but not always valued as a resource. In every Italian region, from April 20th to 28th, small groups of bloggers, social media specialists and culture lovers will occupy museums and cities’ areas making a deep visit to the site and reporting live what they see.
