Cool Classic Cars – a Valuable Asset for Sustainable Tourism (2022 – 2025)

COOL CLASSIC CARS is a project that combines three socio-economic trends:

  • Vintage cars: The passion for vintage cars or for the so-called youngtimer is widespread throughout Europe and there are currently hundreds of vehicles older than 25 years in circulation. All this constitutes a heritage that must be valued in the perspective of sustainability: Even if an old car certainly consumes more than a new car it is true that the energy cost between the two becomes similar if you calculate the energy consumption necessary for the construction of a new vehicle.
  • Sustainable tourism: the way of travel is changing and ethical choices regarding the environmental impact of travel are becoming increasingly important. In this perspective, Cool Classic Cars wants to promote a type of tourism, practicable with vintage cars, which prefers lesser-known destinations exploited by mass tourism.
  • The industrial cultural heritage: In view of a slow tourism and away from the most crowded destinations, The project Cool Classic Cars will analyze a series of sites that testify to the history of society and industrialization and that have become today places of cultural interest as well as art and recreation centers.
