L'expérience du visite authentique comme nouveau moteur touristique : le cas du château de Guédelon

Abstract : The concept of authenticity was studied at length and then conceptualized by different specialists, who enabled deeper reflection on its meaning. Here, it is a matter of examining the use of this idea, which has become increasingly common with what is being offered to tourists now. The emphasis is on experiencing culture through an emotional or knowledgeable bias. In essence, this paper focuses on the quest for authentic experience and its influence in the field of tourism. In order to study this question, we looked at Guédelon, a site of experimental medieval archeology in Burgundy, the first archaeological park to emphasize the work of craftsmen. Obtaining a definition of authenticity is complex since it is a vast term and its application differs according to the subject or the experience. The study of this idea highlights different existing definitions - not mutually exclusive or even complementary. This thesis examines Guédelon's tourism business model, a priori paradoxical with the authentic approach of the site, but which is necessary to ensure its durability. Therefore, this model would make it possible for people to learn while being fun and attractive. Finally, this quest for authenticity could conceal basic questions connected with personal identity.
