All the seaside resorts awarded this year by FEE Italia

Liguria, Tuscany and Campania on the podium. 385 Italian beaches were awarded with the 2019 Blue Flag, resulting in excellence in the national tourism landscape in terms of cleanliness and sustainability. On 3 May, the FEE Italia ( Foundation for Environmental Education ), at the CNR in Rome, awarded the most coveted award for beach resorts: the Blue Flags . The main objective of the FEE is to promote a sustainable environmental condition in the coastal municipalities through a series of indications that put environmental protection at the forefront. Trovaspiagge.it met the President of FEE Italy Claudio Mazza during the press conference held at the CNR in Rome last Friday. The editorial staff asked him for some advice for the municipalities that want to apply for next year: “For the municipalities it is a challenging path to confront the 32 criteria of the Blue Flag program but it is a path with the philosophy of continuous improvement that takes place with small steps that over time determine change. Municipalities that are able to preserve their environmental heritage and know how to promote it already show themselves to be the most appealing for tourism, tourism – underlines Mazza – which will inevitably have to refer to increasingly stringent sustainability parameters in order to be able to renew and create well-being ". In order to obtain the Blue Flag, a beach must be designated as a bathing area at national (or international) level with at least one sampling point for bathing water analysis. It must also comply with the 32 requirements of the international program, including: – Environmental education and information : information on the quality of bathing water must be posted and an environmental education program must be implemented and promoted every year for bathers; – Water quality : the beaches must comply with the sampling requirements regarding the quality of bathing water established by the Blue Flag microbiological and physical chemical parameters. Samples are conducted by the local ARPAs ( Regional Environmental Protection Agency ) according to the guidelines of the Ministry of Health in collaboration with the Ministry of the Environment; – Environmental management : sandy shores must be regularly cleaned and there must be separate containers for separate waste collection; – Services and security : an adequate number of rescue personnel and / or rescue equipment must be guaranteed; in addition, there must be at least one beach per Municipality, with access and services for the disabled . Are there any changes to the Blue Flag program for next year ? "The programs of the FEE, an international Foundation, are consolidated because before becoming official and extended to all the territories they are tested for at least ten years in some countries. The parameters are always in progression and updated with the dynamics that can exist in the territory in the ambit of what is the protection of the environment. It is important that the administrations involve citizenship to ensure that the Blue Flag becomes a common goal ", replied President Mazza.


New: Twelve new municipalities were awarded the 2019 Blue Flag


– Villalago (AQ) – (Scanno Lake) – Pisticci (MT) – San Nicola Arcella (CS) – Villapiana (CS) – Anzio (RM) – Imperia (IM) – Riva Ligure (IM) – Sanremo (IM) – Gabicce (PU) – Maruggio (TA) – Sant'Antioco (CI) – Pozzallo (RG)


Municipalities that have not reconfirmed the Blue Flag


Unfortunately, only four of the winning seaside resorts of last year (read the article on Blue Flags 2018 to discover the awarded beaches) have not, unfortunately, reconfirmed: – Porto San Giorgio (FM) – Porto Sant'Elpidio (FM) – Rhodes Garganico (FG) – Melendugno (FG) We asked President Mazza what he would recommend to the seaside resorts, and to the relative administrations, who have lost the Blue Flag over the years to be able to confirm it again: "It can happen that for a problem that occurred on territory, a municipality has lost the Blue Flag. The important thing is to continue the path taken to reconfirm itself in the future ”.
