The socio-economic impact of Covid-19 is extremely shocking, due to the suspensions, limitations, and contractions of many economic activities. Tourism is certainly one of the most affected sectors, heavily penalized by the constraints imposed on the mobility of people. Considering the importance and complexity of the sector, this paper intends to verify the pandemic impact on the financial performance of businesses engaged in various tourism activities, through an analysis of 2020 interim reports of a sample of listed companies. Although limited to the first phase of the pandemic and to large companies, this analysis seems significant to assess the severity of the crisis and to identify useful solutions for the prospective recovery of tourism activity.
