Ala, City of Velvet

It is not a dream, I am awake

Among courtyards and gardens, squares and palaces in Ala’s Baroque historic centre. The 26th edition of Ala Città di Velluto wishes to experience the enchantment of being in an ancient era, in a magical, almost dreamlike setting.

Ala, velvet city

Three days of shows, fairy tales and music, a school of magic, activities and proposals for families, and guided tours with characters in 18th-century costumes. Pubs open in the picturesque scenery of baroque streets and palaces every evening from 6 p.m. and on Sunday for lunch too.

From Friday to Sunday, shows and entertainment in the Taddei, Pizzini, Scherer and Azzolini palaces, including tango, mysteries and love letters.
