Music Thursday: free event at Palazzo Gavotti

Music Thursday is back in Savona in July.

Every year, Music Thursday fills the historic centre with concerts, extended opening hours for shops and free entrance to the Museo d’Arte di Palazzo Gavotti from 20:30 to 23:30 and a guided tour to the Cappella Sistina in Piazza Duomo from 9pm till 11pm.

Take advantage of these two hours to visit the Museo della Ceramica and discover the Pinacoteca Civica, two collections that together offer a complete panorama of the artistic tradition in Liguria, from the fourteenth-century altarpieces and the traditional white and blue majolicas, to contemporary ceramics from international artists such as Asger Jorn and Adrian Paci.

This is an event not to be missed out on for music lovers with four concerts held on the stage in Piazza Sisto every Thursday from 10pm:

  • 6th July: Septeto Naborí (Sounds from Cuba)
  • 13th July: Antonio Sorgentone and The Heart Attacks (Rock and roll)
  • 20th July:  Camillocromo (Electroswing)
  • 27th July: Galbiati & friends, tribute to Lucio Battisti with participation of «Univercity incontra Savona»

The event, made possibile by the contribution from Costa Crociere, this year has a few new additions including the participation of l’Università degli Studi di Genova: Unige, Campus and Radio Campus Wave that have created educational science workshops which will be held in via Santa Maria Maggiore, from 8pm onwards.
