On Monday, May 20, the mayor of Palermo, Roberto Lagalla, presented the four-hundredth anniversary of the Festino di Santa Rosalia at the Italian Cultural Institute of London, in the presence of director Francesco Bongarrà and the Country Manager of Enit in the UK, Flavio Zappacosta.

"I thank director Bongarrà for the splendid welcome.
This represents another important milestone for us in promoting the year of Rosalia, which will enliven Palermo until 2025, enhancing the cultural and artistic heritage of our city and metropolitan area with a rich program of events.
Palermo is experiencing a period of rebirth and transformation through which it is building a new metropolitan identity, connecting tradition and innovation, art and entertainment. The four-hundredth Festino di Santa Rosalia will be a great opportunity for tourism revitalization, and this year it will also feature the signature of an internationally renowned artistic director, such as Marco Balich."

Thus declares the metropolitan mayor of Palermo, Roberto Lagalla.
