INC Hotels Group is involved in the touristic development of the historical and cultural heritage of the territory by supporting projects and initiatives as:
Babettes’room, Palace of Colorno
The Group has financed the restoration of the marble floor of the room of Louise Elizabeth of France (1727/1759) called Babette, wife of Philip de Bourbon of Spain, that has been damaged during the earthquake of 2012.
Costume of Dsèvod
During Carnival 2012, INC Hotels Group with other fellow citizens, has participated in the creation of a new costume for the Parmesan mask of Dsèvod (1600) as the old one was very worn.
Moreover, the costume has been exhibited in 3 facilities of the Group in different periods between February and March 2012 (Best Western Hotel Farnese Parma, Holiday Inn Express Parma and Hotel San Marco).
When the costume was displayed at Best Western Hotel Farnese, a meeting was organised with some students of the European School of Parma that were following a course on the history of the city.
It was an opportunity to combine the European vision with the local history and perspective.
Traditional Italian masks in Parma
INC Hotels Group has participated at the national parade of masks of the Italian cultural tradition that since 2014 takes place every month of May in Parma.
The visitors could discover the identity of each character and its region of origin.
Linked to the parade there were other events as exhibitions and conferences on the traditions of the population.
By staying in one of the Hotels of the Group the clients have been able to enter for free in the museums and attend the dinner of the Italian masks.
