The Théâtre de Nice organizes shows - O. Ayed

  • 210 cultural, musical and sporting events will take place this summer on the Côte d'Azur.
  • The city's objective is to favor professionals from the region in order to revive an economy that was shattered during the confinement.

"Working with short circuits, especially in culture, reveals incredible talents," exclaimed Christian Estrosi, on Wednesday. A few days before the municipal elections, the mayor of Nice presented the program of events, all free, which will take place this summer in the French Riviera capital, despite the health measures linked to the new coronavirus.

The stated objective is to favor Nice professionals from tourism and culture, and to initiate solidarity between sectors in order to revive the regional economy. In Nice, tourism alone accounts for 18% of the city's GDP. After a large-scale call for projects, 210 events will take place throughout the summer. "One event a day," said the mayor.

The health crisis has damaged our economy. I therefore wished, from March, and in concert with economic players, to take numerous support measures to give our businesses the means to preserve their activity and their jobs. # Covid_19
