Ostention Turin and Holy Shroud

Turin is heading toward a record event with the Ostension of the Holy Shroud in 2010. The numbers make a certain impression: a million and a half visitors are expected; 30,000 coaches from all over Europe, without counting trains and charter flights. The President of Federalberghi Piemonte Bernardino Garetto made an advance announcement of the first figures: “On the weekends during the period of the Ostension we are at 75 percent room occupancy”. In real numbers almost 10,000 hosts have already booked and on some dates full occupancy has been reached. Forecasts for the economic repercussions of the Ostenion indicate approximately 15 million Euros for the city.
