PIACENZA 2020

Piacenza 2020 features a packed calendar of events involving everything from art to theatre, from dance to sport, from opera to classical and jazz music, not to mention Piacenza’s grand tradition of food and wine, one of the things for which it is most famous around the world.

Piacenza 2020 is promoted by a committee composed of the Municipality of Piacenza, the Fondazione di Piacenza e Vigevano, the Diocese of Piacenza-Bobbio and the Piacenza Chamber of Commerce. The theme is “Crossroads of cultures”, which was the focus of Piacenza’s candidacy for the title of Italian capital of culture.

Piacenza feels more strongly than ever that it is more than just a “land of passage”, as Leonardo da Vinci described it: it is a place that welcomes and “intrigues” its visitors with all its secrets waiting to be discovered, with all the intertwining tales it has to tell, with its excellent food and wine specialities, its river and streets, and its churches and prestigious buildings, some of which will be returned to their former splendour, following significant renovation and urban regeneration works.

Piacenza 2020 is part of Emilia 2020, a system of regional promotion that focuses on uniqueness and experience which, in the wake of Parma’s nomination as Italian Capital of Culture 2020, brings together everything that Piacenza, Reggio Emilia and the Ducal City of Parma have to offer under one single banner.
