Una Notte Italiana
“Una Notte Italiana” will turn the world heritage Sanssouci Park into two summernights filled with entertainment on August 16th and 17th. This year’s motto “Una Notte Italiana” is inspired by Frederick II. and Frederick William IV.. Their love for Italy is evident in the architecture around the city, in the parks and castles, and in the many baroque pieces of art which grace the castles. This Italian tradition is beeing honored in Potsdam and especially Sanssouci Park. Spectacular light arrangement, opulent visuals as well as artistic and culinary delights will present the illuminated park as a world star. The historical buildings and the park with its fountains and waterworks will be the stage for various musicians and artist who will turn the night itself into a work of art.
The motto “Una Notte Italiana” is corresponding to the upcoming exhibition at Museum Barberini which will present artworks from the Pallazi Barberini and Corsi as well as the Nationalgalerie. The connection of Potsdam and Italy, which is everpresent in Potsdam’s architecture, will be celebrated in 2019 with many events. The Potsdamer Schlössernacht will be a highlight of this upcoming Italian event summer.
