Porretta Summer 2020

PORRETTA SUMMER 2020
FROM 23 JULY to 19 SEPTEMBER @ Rufus Thomas Park //  Ponte della Venturina Park

Sustainable tourism, lived in full health and safety. Starting from this concept, we used the months of the lockdown to set up a team work, together with the Proloco, the Associations and the local artists: an ambitious Tourist Communication Plan for the summer 2020 was born, with a significant title “In the Apennines you can …”. This simple formula indicates that, after the dark phase of the prohibitions for health reasons, it is possible to recover a dimension of freedom, in a wonderful strip of green Apennines, relaxing and safe.
