Torino - February 27th - June 14th, 2009

Palazzo Bricherasio has been at the center of the historical events of the city and now is a focal point both artistically and culturally. Since 1995 it has welcomed over one million visitors and has become one of the key locations for cultural initiatives that best represents the city of Torino. The exhibition is dedicated to Egypt during the rein of Amenophi III and Ramseys II and retraces the historic-cultural events of Egypt between the reigns of Amehotep III and Ramesses II, focusing on the figure of Akhenaten, the pharaon who established the cult of Aten, the sun.



Napoli - June 4th - June 28th, 2009

This year, the second edition of the Napoli Teatro Festival Italia develops its international career through collaborations with the Theater de la Ville in Paris, the Edinburgh Festival, and the Wiener Festwochen. Artists from different nationalities will come together on the stage, all to create new productions. This second edition will also be held throughout the city, from Decumani to the Quartieri Spagnoli, in 17th-century halls and churches, in the Real Albergo dei Poveri, to the city's ancient subterranean vaults and the rooftops of its tallest palazzos, until you leave the city itself.



The "Parchi" Card, (which will be available in Italy since February) is a card that has been created with the aim of developing social tourism in at least 22 National Parks distributed across 18 Italian regions. The card will allow visitors access to protected areas at controlled prices and will include discounts through hotels, restaurants and other services that are linked to the initiative.
