Castells (1996) argued that in today’s space of flows, the nodes count and thrive to the extent that they project a strong image, making the best of their (cultural, social or plain geographical) idiosyncrasy. Eventually, this process produces important socio-cultural and economic impacts at world level. The increasing attention given by global denizens and policymakers to anything creative inevitably ends up remapping urban tourism.
