Love in all its forms, from friendship to passion and commitment to others, is back in the spotlight thanks to “Verona in Love”. From 9 to 14 February, the day that celebrates lovers, Piazza dei Signori, Cortile Mercato Vecchio, Cortile del Tribunale and Loggia di Fra Giocondo (all spaces adjacent to the famous Piazza delle Erbe) will be the protagonists of street parties, themed markets, concerts, handicraft shopping, food and wine stands and showcooking.
Musical events, talks and the ever-present heart-shaped market will embellish Piazza dei Signori where the main stage of the event will be hosted. Cortile Mercato Vecchio and Cortile del Tribunale will be packed with stalls of creative handicrafts from 9 to 11 February. “Fatto con Amore” comes to Verona in Love with Ama Eventi Creativi, the association formed by over forty creative people who love to create by hand.
The two courtyards at the heart of the ancient city will also host two now iconic events of the kermesse: the launch of love messages and the cinema kiss.
