Events for thirtieth anniversary

On the occasion of the thirtieth anniversary of the signing of the Twinning Agreement between Prato and Ebensee, the Municipality of Prato in collaboration with the Association organized a series of initiatives and events, some of which took place in the first part of September on occasion of the anniversary of the liberation of Prato by the Nazi-fascists and jointly with the Prato annual Historical Parade. The second part of the events is scheduled for the end of the month, from 25th to 27th September, exactly when it marks the date of the pact twinning signature between the two cities.
These activities were funded with the support of the European Union under the Programme "Europe for Citizens".
