Patti Smith concert

Oct 5 2023, 20:00
Nova Gorica/Gorizia

Patti Smith, a celebrated punk poet, singer and artist, will give a concert at a new venue at the former border crossing of Ro┼żna Dolina/Casa Rossa between the Italian and Slovenian cities of Gorizia and Nova Gorica as a prelude to the two cities' 2025 European Capital of Culture project.

Smith said she was looking forward to perform in the future capital of culture. "I can't think of a better name to go borderless than the Valley of Roses, uniting Italian city of Gorizia and Slovenian city of Nova Gorica. Coming to the region where Pasolini, Kosovel and Rilke were writing their poems is a great inspiration for me," she added.

The concert is admission free.
