trovafestival.com is a website giving high level information about cultural festivals and fairs in Italy and in Canton Ticino (the Italian speaking Canton of Switzerland).
The geolocation system (Google maps) of trovafestival.com connects the territories where events are held to the record of each event, offering intuitive and immediate information to users.
The site is already linked to a Facebook account and an Instagram account.

trovafestival.com was released in February 2017; it now lists more than 500 events in several areas of cultural interest:
#visual arts, #architecture, #design;
#cinema;
#video, #tv, #radio;
#books and #literature || #philosophy, #history, #science, #journalism…
#performingarts || #theatre, #dance, #performance, #puppets…
#music || #classical, #chamber, #opera, #jazz, #blues, #rock, #pop…

You can search the database using several keys:
# When (Month);
# Where (Region or Metropolitan Area);
# What (areas of interest);
# Selected tags.

The basic record for each festival/fair features:
# name of the event;
# town (and possibly venue or venues);
# month (start date and end date);
# area (or areas) of interest;
# link to the official website of the festival/fair and program.

We also highlight the projects that include calls, competitions, applications, a feature that artists and producers appreciate.
Other information can be added as a result of agreements with the festivals (through media partnerships or paid advertisement); content may also be the result of agreements with other partners (hotels and b&b, restaurants, shops, museums, tourism offices…).
