Posidonia Festival

Why a "Posidonia" Festival?

Because we are aware of the importance of defending the Posidonia oceanica as a key element to maintaining the equilibrium of the mediterranean coastal and marine ecosystems.

Because the plant contributes enormously to the beauty and life of the Mediterranean Sea.

Because we believe in the union of Culture, Education, and Environment Preservation as a means of making a transition towards a sustainable planet.

Because of all this, the Posidonia plant stands for the spirit and aims of the Festival .
