The extensive programme at Villa Bertelli
Villa Bertelli is the cultural epicentre of Forte dei Marmi and one of its main venues, together with Forte Lorenese, the seafront and the Vittoria Apuana district.
Here, various exhibitions come to life where culture is the protagonist, such as Mimmo Rotella. Il genio poliedrico, (Mimmo Rotella. The genius polymath), an anthological collection of the artist, which you can attend until 17 September.
Until 27 July, you can admire Intimi trascorsi (Intimate Pasts), the ideal way to get to know the Versilia area in depth. Matteo Ciardini, who grew up in the north-western part of Tuscany, pays homage to this land by narrating its unique views.
Not to be missed is the fourth edition of Parliamone in Villa, the talk show where various personalities from the world of journalism, cinema and show business will take turns over the course of the summer, dealing with the most diverse topics.
There will be no shortage of concerts at the beautiful Villa Bertelli. There’s something for everyone, from the big names that have made Italian music history to all the new sensations.
Among the most interesting events is the VENDITTI & DE GREGORI tour, one of the most eagerly awaited Italian concerts after last summer's sold-out tour. The date chosen for Forte dei Marmi is 22 July.
A partnership that is bringing surprises is that between Fiorella Mannoia and jazz musician Danilo Rea, whom you will be able to see live on 6 August.
