GardaLo! At Vittoriale three-day festival for adults and children – Gardapost

Finally see the light of day in 2022 GardaLo !, the cultural festival involving the Lombard shore of Lake Garda highly desired and designed for an area that – in light of extraordinary tourism in terms of quality and quantity – still lacked an agreement that would enrich that cultural offer, becomes a really waiting moment within the summer calendar.

Like this Giordano Bruno Guerricomments on a first edition, which looks to the future and to the construction of an increasingly rich festival, central to Garda’s cultural offerings: “Now in the Garda area, I have long felt the lack – in the splendor of Garda – of one festival that brings beauty, intelligence, fun, discoveries to the wave of tourists who come to visit us. Now is the time, for times of crisis are also the starting points for a rebirth. GardaLo !, already in this pilot edition, which will take place entirely at the Vittoriale degli Italiani, will touch on the basic points of rebirth: education of children and young people, first and foremost, then school, the relationship between city and inhabitants. , history, the economy in its most dynamic forms, start-ups; finally sensational shows for intelligence and beauty. It’s called GardaLo! because in the intentions next year it will join the Bergamo Brescia 2023 Italian Capital of Culture with ten days of events in all the cities along the Garda Lombard coast, including Brescia and beyond. But in the final project, it will be GardaGa !, and will involve the three coasts and the three regions of this boundless wonder: neither physically nor mentally ”.
