Pesaro named Italian culture capital 2024

Cabinet greenlights Rossini's Marche birthplace

(ANSA) - ROME, JUN 23 - The Marche seaside town of Pesaro was officially designated Italy's culture capital for 2024 by the cabinet on Wednesday night.
    The pretty resort, famed worldwide fro its Rossino Opera Festival, beat off competition from its southern Marche 'sister' town Ascoli Piceno.
    Other cities and towns that lost out were Chioggia, Grosseto, Mesagne, Sestri Levante with Tigullio, Siracusa, the Union of Comuni Paestum-Alto Cilento, Viareggio and Vicenza.
    Mayor Matteo Ruicci told ANSA "the official designation was important because we now have a million euros of funding and can really get started in prompting our town.
    "We've already been to Paris, and next month we'll be in Los Angeles and New York.
    "It's a great responsibility and a great opportunity for development for the whole Marche region". (ANSA).
