A small party city that does it holistically
Santarcangelo di Romagna is a little ancient city of just over 20,000 inhabitants. It's set right in the heart of the ancient Italian region of Romagna between the Apennine mountains and the Adriatic Sea, equidistant from both Venice and Florence.
It's a city which hosts modern festivals like the International Festival of Street Theatre and ancient festivals like the 1,000 year old Festa di San Michele (known as the festival of cuckolds and which brings in over 100,000 revellers)
Apart from wild festivals, it's also a city of wild art and home to the the Mutoid Waste Company. Santarcangelo is also very proud of its food and wine and is a Slow Food City.
But its key to sustainable success is its young dynamic female-oriented council who have plenty of challenges to prove their worth including- tourism, immigration, closed minds, gentrification, ageing population and more.
Everybody is included in the sustainable solution - kids, old people, immigrants, local communities and tourists.
It's a modern holistic answer to tourism today.
Every person a poppy in a great field created out of waste land.
Even the city tourism app was created by local kids
