San Patrizio Livorno Festival 2023: an amazing success!

We are thrilled to announce the resounding success of the San Patrizio Livorno Festival #SPLF 2023, which took place over three unforgettable evenings. With around 400 attendees, the festival was a vibrant celebration of Irish culture and its deep connections with Livorno, Italy. (IN ITALIAN).

First and foremost, we would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to the people of Livorno, the esteemed Assessore alla Cultura, Livorno’s municipality Arts Officer Simone Lenzi, and the esteemed Lord Mayor Luca Salvetti for their warm welcome and support throughout the festival. Livorno, with its rich maritime heritage and shared appreciation for black humour, provides the perfect backdrop for this cultural endeavour. The Patrocinio from the Comune was very much appreciated.

A special acknowledgement goes to the magnificent ex-Cinema Aurora, our venue for the festival. The historic theatre and its dedicated staff contributed immensely to the festival’s success. We are indebted to their professionalism and commitment to creating a memorable experience for all attendees and the Irish guests: Go raibh míle maith agat Giacomo, Jelena, Asja, Federico, Matteo!

We are also delighted to share that the San Patrizio Livorno Festival is, starting with the just finished edition, not only about cultural exchange but also about forging partnerships and collaborations between businesses and tourism. We extend our deepest gratitude to all our sponsors and partners for their generous support, without which this festival would not have been possible: Go raibh míle maith agat Culture Ireland, Irish Embassy in Rome, Uphostudio Fotografia, Alfonso Scioli Design, Hotel Stazione Livorno, The Season, Enoteca Alessi, RiseAct.org by Metadonors, Travelling Languages, Viaggiare in Irlanda.

In addition to our sponsors and partners, we would like to express our special thanks to Lidia Calvano, Marina Savelli, Ephraim Pepe and Ivan Coppola for their invaluable logistical support. Their dedication and hard work behind the scenes contributed significantly to the smooth operation of the festival.

We are incredibly proud of the festival’s success and grateful for the support of our community, sponsors, partners, volunteers and, last but definitely not least, attendees. Together, we have created an extraordinary event that will be cherished in our memories for years to come.

Stay tuned for updates on future events and initiatives as we continue to strengthen the bonds between Ireland and Italy through the San Patrizio Livorno Festival. The SPLF is now growing into a brand which wants to strengthen even more the connections between the two countries and cities, with multiple events per year.

Despite all the organization work, the fun and the love, the Festival wouldn’t, of course, exist without its guests. We salute all of them: Peter “Cursed” Murphy, Stephen James Smith, Catherine Fitzgerald, Federico Platania, Enrico Reggiani, Claudio Monteleone, and Colm Mac Con Iomaire.

A special, deepest, warmest grazie mille goes to Catherine Dunne, co-founder and co-director of the festival, without whom the SPLF wouldn’t be what it is, and to John Banville, the Lifetime Patron of the Festival who wanted to join us remotely.

Thank you once again for being a part of this remarkable journey! Here to #SPLF ’24, and probably, a few surprises in advance of it!
