In 2001, the city of Bellinzona launched a recreational event entitled “Estate Insieme”, meaning “Summer Together”, and from 2015 this event has morphed into BelliEstate, a name change that reflects the organisational and logistical makeover proposed by the local authorities. This initially took the event back to its original location, the municipal stadium, but in 2018 BelliEstate will move to Bellinzona’s new park and recreational zone.
The many and varied activities on offer as part of BelliEstate will take place between 25 May and 14 June, incorporating various organisations that have the opportunity to present themselves and the work they have done over the year on a large covered stage measuring 10x10m. There will also be activities and workshops allowing the general public to participate actively in sports and recreational activities such as Zumbathon Charity Event, DanziAMOinsieme – BelliEstate Folk Festival, Hip Hop For Respect, friendly five-a-side football tournaments, unihockey, street basketball, junior football tournaments and beach volleyball. Plenty of cultural, musical, recreational and educational activities for children are also planned, with opportunities to have fun and get active through ping pong, table football, basketball and football. Younger visitors will also be able to take advantage of an extensive play area and trampolines.
