An evening in the dark: discover Bormio from a different angle

The Evening in the Dark is a unique occasion to rediscover the historical and cultural heritage of the so called Magnificent Land. The courtyards, buildings and monuments of Roma street, Kuerc square and De Simoni street will become the meeting point of food and wine tasting and knowledge.

The dim light will make the scenario a perfect postcard enlighten the ancient streets and buildings, making the scenario a perfect postcard.

Carrying your lantern within the dimly lit streets you will start a suggestive journey where the aroma of the past will be bring back! The scenario – made of voices, musics, scents – will look like a postcard.
