Events in Marina di Ragusa: Arrivederci Estate 2010
Summer is almost over and autumn is just around the corner, and as has happened for many years also this year Marina di Ragusa is setting up a big event to say goodbye to summer and to the tourists that have chosen the Sicilian city to spend their holidays, closing out the season in the best possible way.
This year the event was about to be cancelled because the organization that used to set up the event could not take charge of that, but thanks to the intervention of the local council with the collaboration of the Province and the help of many sponsors, the inhabitants of the city and tourists will not have to part with the great late summer celebrations. This year the name of the event was changed from “Addio Estate 2010” to “Arrivederci Estate 2010”, just in respect of the previous organizers, but the winning formula that has made the event one of the most appreciated summer happenings in Sicily remains the same. There will be all the usual ingredients of the event: from music to art, from dance to fireworks, to offer all the participants an unforgettable day, which will remain in their minds and their hearts, and which will not disappoint the expectations of those tourists that decide to extend their stay in Marina di Ragusa just to take part in this popular event. It is also for these aficionados of the city and of the event that the local council decided to organize the event.
The program of the event was presented during a press conference that took place on the 7th of September with major Nello Dipasquale, another member of the local council (Francesco Barone), President of the Province Franco Antoci, another representative of the Province (Salvo Mallia), and the representatives of sponsors, and includes many events that will take place in various main parts of the city: Rotonda (Lungomare A.Doria), the tourist port, Piazza Duca degli Abruzzi and Piazza Malta. The whole city will be involved in this great party, a party that will be characterized by cheerfulness and fun. Certainly the end of summer also implies a sort of nostalgia and memories of the good days spent on the beach, when office and work were only distant memories, but “Arrivederci Estate 2010” is meant to be a good chance to have fun, to come back to everyday life good-humoured and with a smile on the face.
Music, shows, food, dance…these, and many more, are the ingredients of the event. Lungomare A.Doria will host a dance show and live concerts, followed by a DJ set, to dance all together under the stars, while in the tourist port space will be given to art, with “Artisti insieme”, as well as to other forms of expressions, with the performances of music bands and dance schools. The meeting point for gourmets will be Piazza Duca degli Abruzzi, where people will have the possibility to taste local products. Space will be given also to the Mariele Ventre Chorus, to concerts, to opera and to Marina’s got talent, followed by the prize giving ceremony of the fireworks competition. Piazza di Malta will be dedicated to children, with a five-a-side tournament for children, games and entertainers. In Piazza di Malta people will also have the possibility to visit a flea and antiques market.
