Artevento, International Kite Festival

How was the Festival born?

Born in 1981 from a happy intuition of the painter Claudio Capelli who, since its inception, has been the organiser and artistic director.
And since 1981, every spring, the sky is filled with colour and magic as kites from all over the world fly harmoniously over our beaches.
A festival that combines imagination, creativity, art and culture.

Every year, the best kite masters on the planet meet on Cervia beach in spring for this traditional event.

More than a consolidated tradition, it represents the ideal appointment with the different cultures of the planet, in full respect of the values of brotherhood, peace and respect for the environment.
The event is now considered one of the ten most important festivals of its kind in the world.


The art of kite building

The Festival is a window on the colourful world of world kite flying, with its original characters and fascinating flying creatures.
It is also an opportunity to learn the art of kite building and flying directly from the world's great kite flying champions.

On the weekdays of the Festival, there are workshops for groups and school groups, by appointment, while on the holidays, they are open to all children.
Participants meet master kite flyers, guests of the Festival from all over the world. And with the help of an interpreter they learn how to build a kite and the first flying techniques.
Budding kite flyers and amateurs can try their hand at kite flying in the dedicated areas adjacent to the masters' area.
