Castello Festival

Among the numerous festivals organized in Padua in recent years, Castello Festival is undoubtedly a cultural container of excellence which over the years has become a staple of the city’s summer programming, ranging from music to theatre, from literature to philosophy, from dance to musicals.

For Castello Festival I had the pleasure of taking care of the complete artistic production, interfacing with the management of all the international artists, managing the technical production and the coordination of logistics, hospitality, audio-video-lighting service for this production with the participation of over 70,000 spectators.

Some of the artists participating in the 2 editions that I had the honor of curating: Noa, Angelo Branduardi, Eugenio Finardi, Paolo Fresu, Ron Carter, Max Angioni, Al Di Meola, Massimo Cacciari, Sergio Cammariere, Roy Paci, Fabio Concato, Danilo Rea, Antonella Ruggiero, and many others.

The main locations for which I had to manage the technical production were the Gran Teatro Geox, in the large outdoor area of the Live Arena, then moving to one of the most central squares of Padua, with the consequent complexities of logistics and management of flows and noise, or Piazza Eremitani, ending up at Palazzo Zuckermann where the cultural and musical productions of the end of summer were held, for a all-around program that covered the summers 2021 and 2022.
