Più informazioni su
The prestigious and international festival sponsored by RAI TRADE of animated cartoons for television has left the pearl of the Amalfi Coast. Citing logistical considerations and ever increasing cost with a decreased budget the decision was made final this week by festival organizers.
Mayor Domenico Marrone rallied forces already a year ago in an attempt to halt the possible move and was successful in obtaining additional funds from the province but with the festival remaining in Campania the region felt it could not offer more. Protests and disppointment from administrations all along the Amalfi Coast. A definite hurt to off-season tourism cited by all concerned.
Mayor Domenico Marrone expresses hope that the festival will return to its origins in Positano with the possible acquisition of a property that could accommodate more than 800persons.
