Naviglio Pavese lights up August weekends

Naviglio Pavese has been given the city's permission for live events on weekend evenings from 3-24 August, and especially over the long Ferragosto weekend from 15-18 August.

Many clubs and pubs in the area, as well as the streets and bridges across the canal, will feature live music and street theatre.

There will also be tributes to Giorgio Gaber – dramatist, actor and singer-songwriter and Enzo Jannacci,  singer-songwriter and standup comedian who died in Milan in the spring.

L Alzaia that runs alongside the canal will be closed to traffic from 19.00-02.00 at weekends.
