This cultural/artistic/musical event is held every year in early June to signal the start of the summer season. Conceived, created and directed by Gianni Citro, the parish priest of Marina di Camerota, which is the town that provides the venue for the event, along with nearby Sapri. The sea binds the culture of Marina di Camerota to the Cilento area and to the Gulf of Policastro.
Communication is a fundamental aspect of the festival, which uses comparison and contrast in an endeavour to overcome cultural prejudice, with a view to creating a new model of Mediterranean civilisation in southern Italy. The “Meeting del Mare” event attracts thousands of youngsters, who come to hear free concerts by up-and-coming bands, stroll amid the stalls and make the most of the beautiful site.
