Gennaro Barbirotti (first generation) in the early 1900s founded the “Transcontinental” shipping agency. In an era of strong emigration, it was the first agency in Southern Italy to offer to all those seeking fortune in America a complete service, from visa to tickets, for intercontinental sea travel. In 1956, he was awarded the Gold Medal by the Salerno Chamber of Commerce for “loyalty to work and economic progress”.
Giuseppe Barbirotti (second generation) in the 1960s was among the pioneers to introduce the “Leisure” segment within the tourism world, which takes over from transoceanic travel by emigration. The holiday becomes a good to which everyone aspires and more and more differentiated and organized travel formulas are born. In the 1970s, the Barbirotti agency established itself internationally, becoming the general agent of Aviatur, one of the first operators who conceived the “Travel Package” formula.
Maurizio Barbirotti (third generation) has been carrying on this family tradition since the 1980s with the same constancy and creativity as those who preceded him. In every epochal transition, innovation is what distinguishes Barbirotti Viaggi: in 2022 Maurizio contributes to create a revolutionary App in the field of travel agencies. Thus was born the Barbirotti Experience Be-It which puts the attractions of the Campania online, to offer the “incoming” traveler a complete guide of tourist services just a click away.
