il campionato del pesto nel Pavilion di Genova durante la tappa di Newport dell'Ocean Race

Genoa has “signed up” for another important stage of its world tour alongside The Ocean Race. In the state of Rhode Island, the delegation from Genoa, supported by Agenzia In Liguria, conducted a series of important meetings with authorities, entrepreneurs, tourism stakeholders and academia.

The Genoa Pavilion in the heart of Ocean Live Park, set up in Newport’s Fort Adams State Park, is, as always, the meeting point for thousands of visitors who have already “virtually” come into contact with the excellence of Genoa and Liguria, to discover tourism, culture, food and wine, and sport.

In the US, Genoa also promoted its excellence through the Pavilion and with a busy schedule of meetings, events and activities. And at the Porto Antico 110,000 people took part in the Sports Festival, and were given the opportunity to try sailing thanks to the FIV Primazona and taking part in the workshops promoted by “Genova The Grand Finale” at The Ocean Race stand, where many asked for information in view of the nine days that will animate the Waterfront with the Ocean Live Park from 24 June to 2 July.

On the occasion of Italian Day, the Genoa Pavilion hosted a presentation of our region and its tourist peculiarities in terms of accommodation and sight-seeing.

Great attention was paid to the topic of sustainability and technology during the meeting with Antonio Novellino, ETT’s SmartSustainableCity R&D Manager, during the Ocean Data Hour on Thursday 18 May on the theme “Enabling tools for citizen science in ocean data collection”.

Kudos to Genoa for its magnificent Pavilion that is supporting us on every stage”, stressed Richard Brisius, CEO of The Ocean Race. “It represents an extraordinary promotion of the excellence of your territory. Even here in Newport it is an important landmark, much visited by the public and full of events. Stage after stage, the excitement is growing for Genoa and the Grand Finale, which for the first time will arrive in your city in the very year of the 50th birthday of this historic regatta ”.

The queens of The Ocean Race have set sail again. The round-the-world regatta that will arrive in Genoa on 24 June set off again from Newport.
