Sustainability and innovation: record numbers for the 62nd Genoa Boat Show – THE INAUGURATION

Thousands of Genoese but also some tourists who sang all together the seafaring themed songs that have made the history of Italian music: un real journey from De André to Paoli, from Orietta Berti to Luca Carboni up to Piotta and Loredana Bertè. A group karaoke, with hundreds of voices in chorus under the Palazzo della Regione: a real party for all ages broadcast live on Primocanale.

Present at the party the president of the Porto Antico Mauro Ferrando, the president of Confindustria Nautica Saverio Cecchi and the mayor of Genoa Marco Bucci. “We will all sing together so enjoy this evening, Genoa! Remember what this Genoa is and what there will be in the future,” said the mayor.

Also present was the president of the region Giovanni Toti, who said just before the fires were launched: “Genoa is the sea and the sea is Genoa”.

The show began with the sound of the sea, of the waves breaking on the coast and with the song of the seagulls, while the holographic image of the Genoa flag waved on the facade of the Palazzo della Regione. Shortly before 9.30 pm here are the fires on the notes of ‘Creuza de Ma’ by the unforgettable Fabrizio de Andrè, then ‘Sapore di Mare’ by Gino Paoli, then ‘Finché la barca’ by Orietta Berti.


Then here is Wave on Lauzi’s wave, the song that gave its name to this evening, followed by the beautiful Summer at the Sea by Giuni Russo. Fun even for the little ones, who were able to sing the jingle of ‘At the bottom of the Sea’, a song from the Disney classic “The Little Mermaid”. Then there is also ‘Gente di Mare’ by Umberto Tozzi and Raf, a song often praised even at the stadium during Genoa matches.

If we talk about boating and the sea, the song cannot be missing ‘Sea, sea ‘by Luca Carboni. Also participating in the party ‘La grande Onda’ by the Roman rapper Piotta. To close the fireworks evening, the disco remix of ‘In alto mare’ by Loredana Bertè. Twelve minutes of pure entertainment between music and lights, all concluding with the flag and the cross of San Giorgio.

This event marked only the beginning of the many ‘out of the Salone’ events planned in a city with hotels almost sold out thanks to the many who have booked in advance to participate in the festival: musical and theatrical performances, markets, vintage car parades, but also events such as Oktoberfest and festivals that make the city alive from here at the 26th of September.
