Thank you Giglio Island and goodbye!

“THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU……. my daughter returned from the Island thrilled. In the natural setting of Giglio Island, she experienced a new adventure that allowed her to measure responsibility in autonomy, in the discovery of new beautiful places, in getting to know boys/girls, artists with whom to build relationships and confront to discover new realities in an atmosphere of welcome and respect.

The stories are many and are full of enthusiasm and “beautiful” emotions that will remain in time and I trust will know how to share in the next occasions new adventures!”

This is one of the messages received on the Signs of Childhood Association mail from the mother of a girl who participated in the SEGNI to Giglio Island 2022 festival. Added to this thanks are those of many other children and girls, parents, tourists and artists who participated in the festival that took place June 16-25 on Giglio Island.

The organizers take this opportunity to join the chorus of recognition to once again thank the Municipality of Giglio Island, Mayor Sergio Ortelli, the entire Municipal Administration and specifically Councillor Walter Rossi, the creator in 2021 of “Giglio: THE ISLAND OF FESTIVALS” context within which the first edition of SEGNI on Giglio was also placed, which was followed by this successful 2022 edition.

Perhaps few people know that the idea of bringing the festival to the island was born from a conversation between Councilor Walter Rossi and Andrea Giannoni, current Pro Loco delegate for cultural events on the island, who knew of the SEGNI festival rom having attended it in Mantua.

The festival is thus the result of an ongoing dialogue with the local government and is made possible thanks to contributions from the Municipality of Giglio Isalnd and the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze. In addition to these fundamental supports are the European Perform Europe program and the Municipality of Mantua with the TEEN project.
