Abstract

This chapter aims to describe the development of the Forliviamo web application, which fosters incidental learning of Italian by international students through the promotion of the city of Forlì and its surroundings. Following a brief portrayal of the context in which the app originated, the theoretical underpinnings that supported the project will be shortly outlined. Afterwards, a general description of the application will be given. A special focus will be put on how language learning has been conceived through experiential tourism and on the strategies adopted to produce contents having different levels of complexity addressed to the whole community of users. To conclude, the outcomes of a first test conducted on a sample of students will be analysed.
