The opening of Parma Italian Capital of Culture 2020+21

Three days of exhibitions, concerts, theatre performances and open air events to mark the start of this unique and unpredictable experience.

It feels like yesterday, that Saturday afternoon when thousands of people gathered at the Ducal Park for the opening of the Capital of Culture programme for the year 2020, to march together towards Garibaldi Square, filling up the streets with yellow and energy, participation and enthusiasm, holding those words of culture that would then be with us much longer than initially imagined.

A three-day opening aimed at involving the community as a whole, with a series of rich and diverse activities, to give a first taste of the programme of Parma 2020+21.
