The International Festival of Nervi is the second big event of the three-year cycle of events at Nervi Parks.

After the great success of Euroflora in April 2018, once again Nervi becomes a stage for Genoa, ready to host a 20-day event that will combine ballet with other forms of art. From 2 to 20 JulyVilla Grimaldi Fassio and the surrounding area - in a space of 8 thousand square meters - will host the International Festival of Nervi. The shows will be held in a natural arena overlooking the sea, a unique setting to experience and share.

The key element of this new and spectacular festival - which is rooted in the excellence of Nervi’s history - will be the alternation between the ballets performed by high-profile classical ballet companies, the refined encounters between  pop and author music and the evocative notes of the Orchestra of the Teatro Carlo Felice, and the prose representations with great performing artists as protagonists.



Particular attention will be paid to aspects related to safety and public flows, with particular regard to the needs of disabled people, for which there will be some specific paths.
Disabled  people with a 100% handicap will have a 50% discount on the ticket price, for themselves and for their helper. To buy a discounted ticket, it is necessary to contact the ticket office of Teatro Nazionale (tel. 010/5342400 – These tickets will allow to have a sit in the areas 1 or 2 of the orchestra.
