As usual in the last few years, Boat Show visitors will have the chance to enjoy some days of relax and entertainment in the Mediterranean city, and cheer up their mood after the long and stressful hours spent at the maritime trade show thanks to a comprehensive mix of cultural and social events called GenovaInBlu.
First of all, you shouldn’t miss the wonderful art exhibit From Impressionism to Picasso. The Masterpieces from The Detroit Institute Of Arts, which you can visit from the 30th of September onwards. From Van Gogh to Monet, from Cézanne to Kandinsky and Picasso, a whole range of painting masterpieces from the 19th and early 20th century will be shown at the historical Palazzo Ducale (locate on map).
On the 30th of September at 8:30 p.m. (maybe after a refreshing aperitivo in one of the countless bars in the charming old town), The Rickshaw Boy based on Lao She’s novel will go on stage in Carlo Felice Theater (locate on map). Remember, reduced price for Boat Show visitors (remember to bring your trade fair ticket with you!).
On Thursday, 1st October you can give your small contribution with a charity event in favour of the Children’s Hospital Giannina Gaslini, one of the leading institutions in Italy.
And dont’ forget your credit card at home on Friday, 2nd October. With Shopping in Blu, many shops around Carlo Felice Theater will be open until late in the evening, showcasing the best of world-renowned Italian apparel, furniture and luxury products. But before that, we recommed you to taste a delicious Agrihour – a happy hour with local organic products for a unique experience – at Carmine Market (locate on map).
The historical buildings on Via Garibaldi (locate on map) will open their doors from 7 to 9 p.m. You will be delighted by the magnificence of their old courts flooded with light at dusk, while Music Conservatory students play mellow tunes.
All that, along with the permanent attractions which Genoa offers to its visitors all year long, among them outstanding museums (first of all the Aquarium of Genoa, but also the Galata Museum of the Sea and the Genoa Cricket and Football Club Museum), its surprisingly charming old town and a beautiful seaside (with a bit of luck you may even take your last bath in the sea of this year’s good season!), will make your journey to Genoa a lifelong experience.
