Cultural Holiday in Riccione
art exhibitions, music, drama
Riccione's history goes back to ancient times and that makes it the ideal place for people looking for a cultural holiday without renouncing the pleasures of mundanity, sea and sun.
The “Green Pearl of the Adriatic Coast” has long been the destination for families, young people and couples, thanks to its numerous leisure activities, its beaches and its mundane life but also thanks to its rich cultural calendar.
Exhibitions of modern and contemporary art, conferences, training course, museums, theatres and shows not to mention the numerous concerts organised in venues or directly on the beach are held all year round.
Shopping and mundane life alternate with art and culture; this is the new aspect of Riccione that hosts many cultural events in its new Conference Centre, inaugurated in May 2008.
Art exhibitions are on display in the Agolanti Castle or in the open-air space of Viale Ceccarini.
Conferences on Poetry, seasons of films, short film Festival… In Riccione you can attend some of the major events of the Italian and international artistic and cultural scene.
Among the most important cultural events held in Riccione, let us mention the "Ilaria Alpi Journalism Prize”, a competition held in Riccione that attracts the most daring journalists and makers of documentaries and investigative journalism; the 19th Century Festival of Saludecio in the Hinterland of Riccione, the numerous art, cinema and drama festivals that are organized in town.
