“The event took place in an incredibly friendly atmosphere, and the perfect organization contributed to the good mood of the participants. The participating groups impressed the audience with their well-presented music and dance skills. The free time for all foreign groups was fun and well-used - in exploring the most famous resort on the Italian Adriatic Riviera.”, said in addition the festival director 

You may apply for participation in the next thirteenth edition of the forum, which promises festival emotions from 21 to 24 May 2020 in the capital of the province of Rimini.
