From Friday 1st July one hundred kilometers of Italy’s Adriatic coastline will turn pink for ‘Notte Rosa’ or ‘Pink Night’. The party continues throughout the weekend with entertainment, cultural events and performances galore, including Joan As Policewoman in concert.
On Pink Night itself, the entire seafront will be pedestrianised and filled with various music stages, sets from famous films plus stalls selling food, drink and gifts. There will be dance performances, contemporary art and video exhibitions and writers’ talks.
At midnight, pink fireworks will dart all the way down the 40km stretch of coast, illuminating the skies along the entire beachfront.
Rimini prides itself on its hospitality, kindness and friendly society and it feels that the colour pink reflects this warm outlook symbolising love, emotions and family.
This year’s event
The theme for this year is ‘the dream is here’ – suggesting that people spend too long dreaming of the impossible and should instead embrace the world around them. The theme fits well with the work of Rimini’s most famous son, film director Federico Fellini, well known for blurring the lines between dream and reality in his films.
This year’s poster has been designed by Bertrand Sallé, a young French artist. Inspired by early 20th century postcards, the image shows the dreamlike scene of the meeting of the moon and the heart.
