THE CAMPSITES: THE HISTORY

1948

In the summer of 1948, the Partaccia pinewoods, unscathed by the events of the war, represented a place of great environmental and ecological charm thanks to their beaches, which constituted the first sandy stretches accessible to those coming from the Bracco or Cisa passes. It soon became clear that it was possible to charge visitors, almost entirely foreigners, a small fee for a parking space, which was usually considered acceptable: as such the first campsites were established.

1960

Thanks to the economic boom of the 1960s, Partaccia was the destination of many tourists (more than one and a half million every year), who stayed in tents, caravans or campervans. The total number of tourists increased again and the campsite areas were remarkably successful until the mid-1970s.

1978

At that time, the campsites were located in a very different way from the present one, since many of them were located on the sea. In 1978 they were expropriated and moved to the mountain side, redesigning the local territory as we know it today.

2017

Despite the recent economic situation, outdoor tourism still accounts for about 600,000 tourists a season and represents 6% of the gross domestic product of the province of Massa Carrara.
