The city where I live during the summer is called Sanremo. The name originated from the local dialect, where the name of the area’s patron, saint Romulus (Italian: san Romolo), was shortened to become Sanromu. Centuries later, locals who weren’t interested in history started believing that there has been a saint Remus, leaving a plethora of misspelling and misinterpretation behind.
I started working on this project in July, when I saw ugly event posters being put up around Sanremo. To fix this, I made a classy three page document.
It then occurred to me that the official posters were already put up, therefore my design could not get widespread until next month. Secondly, Sanremo isn’t the only city to host interesting events, so a logical continuation of the project would be encompassing events happening in the surrounding area.
To make sure everyone knows what’s happening, I made a website, which, unlike posters, can be edited at any time. I’ve been updating it ever since. I’m now searching for a person that would do so for me.
I know, it doesn’t pop: it’s bare-bones. It’s not hosted on my server yet. The speed of adding new events is limited by how quickly I find something interesting, plus there’s no automatic mechanism for doing so. That’s why it’s still in beta. Tell me what you think: riviera.kurlov.net
P. S. I’m now going to document every update I make. Today I added a checkmark that appears on events that I verified by visiting. This system will not always work as events usually happen at a certain time, but it works very nicely on those that last several days.
