What a celebration for the 20th anniversary
of the Porto della Maremma!
A party that we will remember forever, an emotion shared with our customers, our friends, the institutions that have supported the history and the present of Porto della Maremma, projecting this facility into a splendid future.
2023 was the year of the 20th anniversary and the event we created resembles something unique, memorable, and unforgettable!
Nearly 500 guests were welcomed on the terrace of the Port, which for an evening was transformed into a place with multiple facets: a restaurant dining room, an open-air kitchen, a theatre for musicians, a stage for institutions, a box from which to admire the fireworks, always keeping the heart beating in its identity as a tourist port facility that for 20 years has seen hundreds of boats arrive and depart with the dreams and emotions of sailing.
For the first time ever, a port, our Porto della Maremma, has set up a 140-metre imperial table along the dock with boats watching the guests peacefully as they tasted the excellent produce of a land rich in flavours, colours and aromas, where all together, Michelin-starred chefs, local chefs, pastry chefs, master gelato makers, butchers and the best maître d’s and sommeliers were united in the magic of a very pleasant summer night.
On the terrace of the port, more than 15 stands offered street food dishes cooked on display based on Tuscan products of excellence with a cocktail specially created for the occasion.
