Who we are
The idea is to create new opportunities and places to qualify for the Argentine Tango. Identify this occasion with different places, by prestigious singular and linked to the culture and history of Genoa. A core desire is to create opportunities in the town center. The purpose is also to be able to organize something original, with new people, fresh and young, new ways to communicate events, propose a theme internships formula, corporal laboratories, social Tango etc .. new ways of enjoying the Tango together with friends, to those who still dance but want to pry. New cultural events, together with the Argentinean reality through contacts made and experience gained over the years. The will is linked to innovation, but you want to stay connected with the tradition and culture of the Argentine Tango.
Every year collaborations and aid!Special thanks to all!!!

Per il 2016 grazie a…
La Lanterna second edition…What can I say? Where to begin? I have to say that this year the worries about the success of this edition have been soaring sky-high as from December everything seemed to be backstroking. So many difficulties to be solved in such few time! Now I can finally say that I made it through! Better to say… WE made it through, because YOU are the magic of La Lanterna! You…with your smiles, with your embraces, your light heartedness, and your wanting to share!!! Pictures, messages, posts, poems, gifts…you’re giving me a lot of positive feelings and I still don’t know how to thank you. The feel that you went back home carrying with you something very special both warms my heart with joy and makes me think mine has been a good job. What La Lanterna has given has received as well…so THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!! Emoticon heart
However, before aknowledgments some sorry should be said. I apologize for the wine we served during the first dinner. Unfortunately the wine supposed to be served has never been delivered to the hotel: I couldn’t realize that until the day after as on Friday evening I was completely committed to welcoming people. I also apologize for the few or missing announcements during the marathon, you need to know I’m not that used to public speaking… I promise I’ll work hard on that!
Moreover I’m really sorry about thefts suffered by the vendors (including us) and by people in the hotel. Even if we are not directly responsible, I’m ready to support anybody intending to take any legal actions.
And now the aknowledgments:
