The International Tournament “Città della Pace” every year gathers thousands of youths in Rovereto (Trentino, Italy) to play many sports, always in the name of sport, peace and friendship. In 2018 the tournament is ready for its 31th edition. Remember the date: on the 30th, 31th of March and 1th of April, the Easter weekend.
On Friday the teams coming from all over the world will arrive in Rovereto and meet the local authorities. On Saturday the matches will start, but the main event of that day is the Opening Ceremony at the Bell of Peace, on Miravalle Hill. Maria Dolens is a symbol of worldwide peace, it is the biggest functioning bell in the world and sounds every evening to remember those who died on battle: the bell will exceptionally sound to open the Tournament “Città della Pace”. Then there will be the parade in the streets of Rovereto. On Sunday (Easter Day), there will be the other matches and the finals will be played in the Quercia Stadium in front of thousands of people. The event will end as always with the wonderful fireworks show.
