Ventimiglia. From food and wine to sports, from cinema under the stars to square events. And again: music, workshops, entertainment. The calendar of events (over seventy) organized by the municipal administration of Ventimiglia to encourage the summer of citizens and tourists is very rich. Lots of news and a lot of confirmations, such as “Medieval August”, which is back after two very hard years of pandemic. To revive tourism and urban trade, the administration has invested more than 300,000 euros, of which over 100,000 only for the theater.
The planned events, from May to October, were presented this morning in the council chamber Ventimiglia municipality.
“We have invested a lot – declares the mayor Gaetano Scullino – Because we want to reserve for citizens and tourists a summer of joy, culture, happiness and ease, after two difficult years between the pandemic and storm Alex, whose wounds still need to be healed. We will try to ensure that people return to appropriate the streets and avenues, Resentello, the theater, the historic center and everything that is accessible. It’s an important commitment, and I’m sure this year’s event calendar is a winning choice.
“It’s a macro calendar that runs from May to October and has five sectors inside, with all the events in Ventimiglia – the deputy mayor explained Simone Bertolucci -. We have achieved this with the precise desire to highlight all sectors: commercial, food and wine, culture, theater and even sports, as Ventimiglia is a candidate for the City of Sports for 2023. A rich calendar thanks to the work of the offices. It was very hard because it does not seem like it, but after two years of a pandemic, it is no joke to build a calendar of this kind. Among other things, we have also had a lot of collaboration from the city associations, which participate with their events and also the availability of the artists who come to the various shows. The best events are those that relate to food and wine and fairs, because they are the ones that bring several audiences at the same time and that have an important stage.
THE MOST IMPORTANT LOCATIONS. «Roman Theater, Forte dell’Annunziata and Resentello, with their thirty agreements, ten each: this is another very important news – says Bertolucci -. Resentello, the natural theater of Ventimigliesi, returns after two years of music and entertainment for all tastes. Fireworks are also important. There will also be a new Deco in Ventimiglia: the prayer from Grammondo, which will be presented on June 11 at the Municipal Theater. The Castagnola club is working on it with Confesercenti, and very soon there will be the Deco Commission, which will officially establish it ».
