Tell about the Palazzi dei Rolli and win an evening in Genoa!

With the 'Tell us about your Rolli' contest, you can tell us about Genoa's Palazzi dei Rolli and win a beautiful evening at the Villa del Principe!

On our website we have told you many times about the art treasures hidden in Genoa’s historic center: splendid palaces, works by great artists, sumptuous aristocratic residences, churches filled with masterpieces. Well: until May 30 you have a chance to learn more about one of the city’s most beautiful places (the Villa del Principe) thanks to a contest sponsored by the City of Genoa. The contest is entitled Tell us about your Rolli and will give you the chance to win an evening at Genoa’s Villa del Principe, Andrea Doria’s “palace” famous especially for its frescoes by Perin del Vaga, its amazing collection of tapestries, and its elegant garden. The winner of the competition will be able to spend an evening at the Villa del Principe, with a private guided tour and a candlelight dinner. In short: a truly mouthwatering special experience!

But how to enter? It’s very simple: until May 30 you have to send, to the mailbox communication @, a story (maximum 2,500 characters) about one of Genoa’s Palazzi dei Rolli. Impressions, stories about the halls or works preserved inside them, about the characters who made the history of the Palazzi dei Rolli, about the legends around their account, about the atmosphere inside these buildings or in the streets of the city that house them: you must, in short, tell about the Palazzi dei Rolli in an original way. You should also not forget to attach a photograph (but you can send up to a maximum of three). Of course, the City of Genoa has published a regulation where you can find all the detailed info: you can download it from here. The award ceremony for the winners and the evening at the Villa del Principe will be held during the October edition of Rolli Days.

The City of Genoa asked us to give news about this contest, and we gladly accepted: it seems to us a nice initiative to give prominence and to offer alternative points of view on one of the most beautiful cities in the world. And above all, the initiative is interesting because it puts enthusiasts at the center, who have the opportunity to become protagonists by proposing stories that, we are sure, will provide original perspectives on the Palazzi dei Rolli. Let’s not forget that a selection of the stories will be published on the LovinGenovaBlog as well as on the Visit Genoa tourism portal. So participate in numerous ways ;-)
