di Vincenzo De Luca
Presidente della Regione Campania
In the last few years, Campania has observed an important increase in tourist flows. A long wave that has different motivations but that must be accompanied and increased. The Region is consolidating these results in terms of infrastructure and organisation. There are places that, fortunately for us, have a great advantage and extraordinary potential. Ravello is one of them. The regional government is acting throughout the territory so that the competitive capacity of tourism, landscape and cultural excellences remains high. Being able to count on cultural and landscape assets unique in the world, we are convinced that what has been lacking so far, the organisation, is the main objective to be pursued. For this reason, we continue to strongly support the Ravello Festival, which this year has two precious collaborations: the Teatro di San Carlo in Naples and the Teatro Verdi in Salerno. This means putting skills, organisation, expertise into a system. We constantly work to promote and enhance Campania. My wish is that everyone will share, each for his or her role, equal commitment to ensuring that our region is given the space it deserves at the centre of the European cultural scene.
Enjoy the festival and a warm welcome to Campania to the many foreign guests we are expecting.
