Paganiana Festival


Identification of a cultural instrument for the activation of a niche tourism flow respecting and protecting the environment.
19-20 September 2009

This project – conceived and implemented by Armes Progetti – introduces a ‘virtuous path’ in order to strengthen the cultural identity of a territory, through a study of the relationship between music and science. As an example, this project was applied in Varese Ligure (La Spezia), an extremely open territory with regard to music creativity.

Even though the project is introduced as an autonomous initiative, it strengthens the strategic and cultural brand of the Val di Vara area, because it is complementary to other events, such as “Luoghi della Musica” and “Paganiano di Carro” Festival. These manifestations have been consolidating over years and play an important role in providing the La Spezia territory with cultural infrastructures which can offer consistent and interesting events.

The project goal is to strengthen the identity and the sense of cultural belonging of the entire local community, using an approach involving not only the economic side, but also the social and educational one.
