Cosita Cruises celebrates its landmark 75th anniversary this month with a series of events in its birthplace, Genoa.

Events kick off from the 19 until 27 October.

Costa launched in Genoa in 1948, with the maiden voyage of first ship, the ‘Anna C.’

On the evening of  20 October, Costa will host the Monumental Tour.

Open to the public in Piazza Matteotti, it features electronic music, cultural heritage, and digital art, created by the French DJ and producer Michael Canitrot.

The main façade of Palazzo Ducale, will come alive with a show of Genoa themed images and lights, depicting its history and the sea.

There will be a cocktail party onboard Costa Toscana, Costa Cruises’ flagship that calls in the port of Genoa every Friday.

Closing the evening will be a special showcase by the renowned Italian artist, Malika Ayane, performing on board the Costa Toscana for the occasion.

The 75th anniversary celebration program also includes an initiative to support local organisation Community of Sant’Egidio.

On 19 October, at the cloister of the Basilica of Santissima Annunziata, Costa Cruises’ chefs will prepare a special lunch for around 150 guests of the Community.

Costa Crociere Foundation has been supporting the Community of Sant’Egidio since 2015.

On 23 October, the Italian comedian Angelo Pintus will perform his show at the Politeama Genovese theater.

The entire proceeds of the evening will be donated to the Gaslini Paediatric Hospital in Genoa.

Costa will double the total amount.

A second event dedicated to the Gaslini Hospital will be on 27 October: a group of young patients from the hospital and their families will come onboard Costa Toscana, in Genoa.

They will also be joined by Mattia Villardita – “SpiderMan“, the man who dresses as the superhero and visits hospitals in the Liguria region.

Also, Costa will be the brand sponsor of the 40th annual assembly of ANCI, the National Association of Italian Municipalities, which will take place at the Blue Pavilion of the Genoa Fair from 24-26 October.

As part of this event Costa will host a workshop dedicated to ‘Guardiani della Costa, the national environmental education and ‘citizen science’ project for Italian students which is promoted by the Costa Crociere Foundation.

“We are happy that Costa has organised a great series of initiatives to share and celebrate this milestone with the people of Genoa,” – said Marco Bucci, Mayor of Genoa.
