Once upon a time, in the wide floodplain where the Canal Emiliano-Romagnolo meets the river Senio... Italy's most famous straw amphitheatre - the Arena delle Balle di Paglia (Arena of straw bales) - returns with six days of straw, creativity, music, stories, and art surrounded by a beautiful landscape.
A rich schedule of events and settings spread in different natural stages: Palco dell'Arena (the central stage), Golena dei poeti (the poets' floodplain), il Canale del Mulino (the mill's canal), il Ridotto Balle (bales foyer), Casa Ercolan, Golena dei morti felici (floodplain of the happy deads), Ponte Primola (Primola bridge), Casa Belvedere, Trebbo del Canale, Bosco del Fiume (the river's forest); in addition there is a bar where to taste nibbles and find refreshments and other passageways such as lanes, unique ways that characterize the landscape of Cotignola.
