1969: Europalia Italia

The hugely successful first edition of the EUROPALIA international arts festival, called EUROPALIA ITALIA, drew 183.834 people who attended 283 events: 9 exhibitions, 25 concerts, operas, and ballets, 44 theatre performances, 19 conferences and debates, and 186 film screenings.

The exhibition Frescoes from Florence, which was shown in Brussels before travelling to Paris and London, drew enormous crowds. Two major events were the world premiere of a musical performance conducted by composer Luciano Berio, and the visit of famed director Luchino Visconti, who attended the premiere of his film The Damned.
