Farewell to Raffaele Jannucci, a caravanning visionary, who passed away at 94

The Aboutcamp BtoB editorial team joins the mourning of Raffaele Jannucci, who passed away yesterday at the age of 94. A brilliant innovator in the plein air tourism sector for over five decades, Jannucci’s career began with a law degree, leading him into advertising and then to become the public relations head for Corriere della Sera’s group.
