 From 2 to 20 July, Villa Grimaldi Fassio and the surrounding area - for a space of 8 thousand square meters - will host the International Nervi Festival. The shows will be held in a natural arena overlooking the sea, a unique setting to experience and share. The key element of this new and spectacular exhibition - which has its roots in the excellences of Nervi's history - will be the alternation between the ballets brought on stage by high-profile classical dance companies, the refined encounters between pop and author's music and the evocative notes of the Orchestra of the Teatro Carlo Felice, and the prose performances that will see great artists of the show as protagonists.

The International Festival of Nervi is an event strongly desired by the municipal administration, committed not only in the process of revaluing the splendid location of the eastern city, but above all in creating events that can be of interest to visitors, tourists and the Genoese. The event, created and promoted by the Rotary initiative of Genoa, uses the organizational support of the National Theater of Genoa. The high-profile programming at the Parchi di Nervi will continue in 2020 with the first edition of the "International Ballet Festival".
