Pink Night (Notte Rosa) 2013

AsaNisiMAsa is the magic formula that the children in 8 e ½ (Federico Fellini, 1963) say out loud at night to make the eyes of a portrait move, and that behind its serpentine alphabet hides the word "Anima" (soul). And the Soul is precisely the theme of Notte Rosa 2013. The soul as warmth, authenticity and the kindness and character of people, the innate gift for hospitality, the good life and the conviviality of the Riviera, the evocative nature and charm of its timeless places.

For two evenings, Friday, July 5 and Saturday, July 6, in Bellaria there will also be the Pink Night for Children.

And even if the artists and program change every year, one moment, the most highly anticipated, always stays the same: the biggest fireworks display at midnight on Friday, with the whole beach lit up by blasts of color.  And to best enjoy this unforgettable weekend, those working in the tourism industry have created special vacation packages with affordable prices for every budget and need.
