There is great excitement for the arrival of the fourth edition of the Romantic Night in the most beautiful villages of Italy, which will take place on Saturday, June 22, following the summer solstice, by the Association of Borghi.
La Notte Romantica, a national event organized by the Association, which last year scored great success and great public participation, registering around 1 million visitors, has in just 3 years proved to be one of the most interesting events in the panorama of tourist-cultural events and entertainment in Italy .
The administrations, the local offices, and the associations of the various municipalities are working diligently on the organization of the event, each to propose their own personal interpretation of the evening – always in line with the basic format indicated by the National Association.
Go ahead, then, to creativity and imagination, to celebrate love and romance in a magical evening, where the public can rediscover itself “romantic” in the atmosphere of the Italian Borghi.
From the Valle d’Aosta to Sicily, all the villages will be lit by candlelight and will offer a rich program of initiatives and events through theatre, music, dance, cinema, exhibitions, various competitions, and much more. Love and romance will be represented and celebrated in squares, palaces, and in the streets of the Borghi.
Two characteristic and unifying moments will be tastings of desserts in the restaurants of the “Pensiero d’amore” created especially for the event by the starred chef Donato Episcopo from Follina (Treviso city), and the now long-awaited midnight kiss, crowned by the launch in the sky of thousands of balloons, to seal the success of an event that succeeds every year to go beyond the most optimistic expectations.
The event format: Candlelit villages

This year there will be a new initiative with singles being invited to celebrate the Romantic Night – not just for those already romantically involved. And that’s why it has been decided to include in the format the organization of events dedicated to those in search of a soul mate!
Two initiatives are proposed to organize socialization mini-events for singles during the Romantic Night: social walking – walks or visits to stay together in a different way, involving single men and women, spending time together to socialize and at the same time discover the treasures of the Borghi; and a social game – a treasure hunt or a team game featuring singles, to have fun, socialize, and “live the village.”
