Tourist Attraction in San Giovanni Valdarno: Pro Loco
The Pro Loco San Giovanni Valdarno Association "Roberto Costagli" was born in 1998, with the aim of enhancing the city with cultural, social, tourism, traditional and economic initiatives. From 1998 until today the association grew, reaching and overcoming the quota of 300 members; moving within numerous festivals, the Pro Loco has been implemented, developing new projects. It is an association of citizens, founded mainly on volunteering and which carries out all those recreational, cultural and touristic activities aimed at maximizing the place where it is located, its territory and its population. The annual membership card starts in January at our headquarters. The Pro Loco headquarters is the tourist reference point of the entire Valdarno Superiore, to which all the offices of neighboring municipalities in tourist matters refer. In our headquarters, besides the brochures of the events of San Giovanni and Valdarno, you will find all the tourist material produced by Arezzo's Tourist Promotion Company, with references to the events of Florence. The Pro Loco organizes events such as Rificolona, Forgiveness, Animal Blessing, Salacca, Antiques and Art Crew Markets and Christmas animations; actively collaborates with the reborn Carnival Society and with the Municipal Administration on the main Sangiovannese and year-round appointments - such as the Palio dello Stufato and the White Night - and with the trade associations for the Days of the Shopping Center Natural every third Sunday of the month; he also collaborates with the other associations of the territory to organize other activities, in addition to those already mentioned. Leo Scheggia is the official mascot of the Pro Loco of San Giovanni Valdarno. The look is friendly and at the same time proud. The Leo Leo, very fond of children, made his first official release at the 2007 White Night, after the presentation to the press a few days earlier. He will be entrusted with the Rificolona rewards and entertainment for the youngest in many other evenings and events. From time to time also, its presence for each event will be evaluated by the Board of Directors of the Pro Loco: intention is however to involve it as many nights as possible.
