In the ‘Strategic Tourism Plan 2023-2027’, launched a few months ago by the Government, we read the following: “A non-negligible factor is the flexibility of tourist rental, capable of providing temporary accommodation in cases of seasonal demand or exceptional flows. The role played by these locations in hosting healthcare personnel or individuals in quarantine during the Covid-19 pandemic was significant.”
Furthermore, the Plan states: “Non-hotel hospitality represents an asset for our country, since it allows hospitality in places where there are no hotel facilities; attracts groups of users who would otherwise travel less often, thus increasing the reception area throughout Italy; allows Italian families to supplement your income or to have one in a period in which the economy is struggling to guarantee work; enriches the market by offering travelers more choice, better prices and superior quality.”

In short, the government says that the short rentals – which represent ‘an explanation of the right to private property, enshrined in the Constitution’ – are valuable for many reasons, especially in inland areas, and also perform an important economic and social function. Why, then, did he decide to penalize them through higher taxation?
