ALEXANDRIA. The “Festa del Cristo” was a confirmation of the area that has undergone a profound transformation thanks to the street and square events that were organized with rigor and enthusiasm.
The week had started with rain and the appointments were delayed, then he had returned with theatrical performances. On Saturday and Sunday, the people of Alexandria chose the neighborhood for walks, shopping and entertainment. To listen to live music, to watch demonstrations, to discover the products of the Forte dei Marmi street vendors on the go, to experience the city in a different way.
“It was a great satisfaction for us,” said Silvana Sordo, the region’s president of trade. We did not think we would reach such a result. Which I define as huge. Our stores were up and running, they were all excited about how it went and we hope this was just the beginning of a strong relaunch for the trade. We started three other activities in Christ “.
Which is Dalla Puglia alla Brace and the new TecnoCasa agency in the corso Acqui, then the first provincial office of the technical area group in via Verneri. “Our goal was to repeat the success of 2019 – Sordo continues – but after a year of vacation this area has achieved something extraordinary. A week-long event with the Tarantino Orchestra, fun, fanfares, the vintage tractor rally, the band, the vinyl show. And thousands of people on our streets in our squares. ” It is not over because the last day of the party will be Sunday: from morning to night, meet through Maggioli. “Il Cristo – commented the mayor, Gianfranco Cuttica di Revigliasco – is a neighborhood that has managed to” cooperate “for a long time and has the full support of the municipal administration. Congratulations to the organizers “.
It is impossible not to make comparisons especially with the historic center, as the Corso Roma is the first shopping street in Alessandria, just above the Corso Acqui. Currently. It can be done again in mid-November with the “Fiera di San Baudolino”: will it be possible to go beyond the benches?
