Love poetries, charming pictures, complimentary handmade ceramic dish and many special prizes: a tidal wave of love and surprises is coming to Camogli!
A romantic dinner and handmade collectible dished that “will make you fall in love”
Let’s imagine to spend Saint Valentine’s Day in Camogli: a relaxing hand by hand promenade through the village’s street, watching the sunset on the sea and in the end, a romantic dinner at the restaurant. What you still don’t know is that the dinner will not just give you magic moment with your partner, but also will homage you with a beautiful collectible ceramic dish!
Every year in fact, during this event, Camogli leaves to an artist the task of creating collectable dishes that must enhance the love theme and the beauty of the village.
This year the task has been assigned to Adriano Penco, who named his work “Sea depth that will make you fall in love”. Within its round shape you will be able to admire the colorful depth of the Protected Marine Area, natural heritage of our territory. Corals, fishes and starfish bring this piece to life, expressing love for Camogli and its sea. The same warm feeling that you can experience when you visit our village.
Every couple can have as present one of these dishes by enjoying one of the special menus that the Restaurants of the village will propose for Saint Valentine’s Day.
You will be able to take back home a memento of your love and of the beautiful memories lived together in Camogli.
Even the Cenobio dei Dogi participates in this initiative! To find out more, fill out the information request form at the bottom of the article.
