Follow the Light…
Follow the Wave…
La LanternaWinter | 25-28 January || Summer | 30-2 September
Lantern is the lighthouse of the merchant port of Genoa and is the symbol of the city.
Many boats have found the right way to enter the harbor thanks to her: an important guide thanks to her light.
The milonga will be in the “Harbor Calling Hall” at the headquarters of the CULMV or the “Single Company of Various Goods Workers”. It is a complex located in front of the famous lantern still used today to carry out trade-related work in particular by the famous “camels”, so called by the Genoese “camalare” because they spend their lives loading and unloading huge quantities of goods.
The room is very large and you can dance comfortably.
There is a bar (in addition to free spaces) attached to the milonga where to rest, chat, take a coffee.
Tre CaravelleLa Niña, La Pinta e La Santa Maria
The caravel (from the Portuguese caravela) was a type of wooden ship, introduced in 1430 by the Portuguese, presumably on the shipyards of Lisbon. It was designed to circumnavigate Africa and reach the East Indies without having to pay taxes to the Ottomans.
In the collective imagination, the “caravels” by far are the three ships with which Cristoforo Colombo reached the Caribbean in 1492: Niña, Pinta and Santa Maria. In fact, the latter was a caracca and not a caravel.
We’ll be in two milonga. One that was church is one that is filled with love. “Holy and profane” as the song by De Andrè. It will be beautiful because it is in the historic center of Genoa. Dj: we find one from Genoa and three from all over Italy.
We can, dancing dancing, arrive to America …
GenovaWhat else can you do...
Genova (Zena), capoluogo dell’omonima città metropolitana e della regione Liguria, centro di un agglomerato urbano di quasi 900.000 abitanti e di una vasta area metropolitana di circa.
Estesa lungo oltre 30 chilometri di costa, Genova è una città che dialoga costantemente con il mare. A poca distanza dal centro cittadino, talvolta solo a pochi passi, è possibile trovare spiagge, calette, scogliere da cui tuffarsi nel blu, potendo scegliere fra angoli magici come il borgo dei pescatori di Boccadasse, eleganti stabilimenti balneari, come ad esempio lungo Corso Italia, o spazi liberi e informali.
Le caratteristiche della costa ligure fanno sì che anche a Genova si tratti soprattutto di spiagge di ciottoli e, per i più avventurosi, di scogliere scoscese, che costano forse un po’ di fatica ma che ripagano con le acque più cristalline e con i fondali più interessanti, a portata di snorkeling.WHAT YOU CAN DO...GENOA, HISTORY
