Pink Night 2016

The 11th edition of Pink Night, from Friday, July 1 and for the whole weekend, is ready to spread its exciting and fun atmosphere along the 160 km of Adriatic Riviera between Comacchio and Senigallia, in the Marche.


For the second year in a row, the stars of the “Italian Summer New Year’s” will include the towns along the northern coast of the Marche, from Gabicce Monte to Senigallia, passing through Gradara, Tavullia, Pesaro, Mondolfo and Fano, with many events that should not be missed.


Pink Positive” is the slogan of Pink Night 2016, an invitation to lightheartedness and positivity which will accompany the official image of the event, created by the Rimini designer Andrea Cavallotti: a big smile on a pink background with two sweet eyes, similar to the emoticons that we use everyday on our smartphones. A message of serenity, joy, sweetness, complicity, irony and the joy of living, the same qualities that set Romagna, the Marche and their people apart from the rest. All of this can be found at Pink Night.



Friday, July 1 the avenues, squares, beaches and every symbolic place – from the Trepponti bridge in Comacchio to the fortress of Gradara, passing by the Grand Hotel and the Tiberus Bridge in Rimini and the skyscraper in Cesenatico –will be lit with pink lights, with museums, bars, restaurants, bathing establishments and hotels open and ready to welcome more than two and a half million guests who will create, with their colorful looks, a beautiful pink human wave.
