This study investigates the effects of localization and territorial features on the distribution and spatial agglomeration of agritourism farms in Italy. We employ both a spatial Durbin model and a multinomial regression model, using an Italian provincial level (NUTS-3) dataset. The results provide robust evidence of positive spillovers of external factors that affect the provincial agglomeration of agritourism farms; moreover, the analyses demonstrate that this is largely a localized process involving both localization and internal agritourism farm features. These findings have important implications for decision-makers and can support the development of more forms of agritourism.

Abstract

This study investigates the effects of localization and territorial features on the distribution and spatial agglomeration of agritourism farms in Italy. We employ both a spatial Durbin model and a multinomial regression model, using an Italian provincial level (NUTS-3) dataset. The results provide robust evidence of positive spillovers of external factors that affect the provincial agglomeration of agritourism farms; moreover, the analyses demonstrate that this is largely a localized process involving both localization and internal agritourism farm features. These findings have important implications for decision-makers and can support the development of more forms of agritourism.
