LITO - The evolution of Travel

The concept of travel has undergone numerous evolutions over time. During the Roman Empire, thanks to the numerous routes built, the number of travelers increased exponentially. The first shelters intended to offer food and lodging to travelers took the name of Stationes. Nonetheless, tourism in those days remained limited to aristocratic families, it would take many years for the birth of modern tourism, and only in the 1960s in Europe, it begins to affect all social strata. In the last 10 years alone, the number of passengers on international flights has grown by 53% (ISTAT, 2020).


Traveling allows us to see places never seen before and meet new cultures totally different from ours, nowadays traveling has acquired many shades, we do not travel only to take a vacation but we also travel for work or study. In history the equipment used to travel has also evolved, the Romans used the Marsupium, a bag that hung from the belt and we could consider it as an ancient suitcase [Figure1].


The equipment and technologies available have changed a lot over time, in fact today the modern traveler chooses equipment that prefers comfort first of all. A simple shoulder bag or a bulky trolley is no longer enough.
