Dario Bertocchi is a researcher at the University of Udine and lecturer at the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. His research concerns how people behave in tourist destinations by analyzing data, ranging from those produced in social networks to those available from phone companies. In his doctoral thesis entitled “Data analysis for the management of the tourist destination” he introduces some methods of data analysis for the personalization of the tourist offer, for the study of flows and for the dynamics within and between destinations. Attentive to the issues of tourist sustainability from an environmental, economic and social point of view, he studies bottom-up and top-down solutions to mitigate the negative effects of tourism. He is a collaborator of various Italian universities for several European projects in the field of tourism and cultural heritage, studying in particular the load capacity of destinations. He lives and works in Venice where he is confronted daily with the phenomenon of tourism.
