ARCI San Lazzaro Club
The club was opened in 1977 and located in a renovated old barn. Nowadays it is a modern community center, a true landmark for locals that offers many cultural and recreational activities. For more info click here
Main square of San Lazzaro di Savena, Thursday night will be the theater of our first two balls! 🙂
Sala Paradiso (Hall Paradise) is the main dancing hall of ARCI San Lazzaro and the real heart of Reno Folk Festival’s activities.
It has been hosting balls since 1992 and through several makeovers and upgrades, leading to state-of-the-art lighting, sound and video systems, it finally became what we can see today.
Sala Paradiso hosts evening balls throughout the week, ranging from traditional ballroom dancing to Latin American dances, group dances from the 60’s to the 90’s and Bologna’s traditional dance: Filuzzi.
Sala Paradiso is also used as a theatre and conference hall, hosting from theatre pieces to puppet shows and concerts, most notably Paradiso Jazz, attracting fans from all over the province.
Sala 77 (Hall 77) is entitled to the club members who in 1977 decided to roll up their sleeves to repair and renovate the old farmhouse that hosts the hall (still known as the “Red House” because of its wall colour). They also created a space to play the local game of bocce (a sort of bowling game) on the side.
Given the size and the wide range of uses of the building, attention was paid to thermal comfort and interior noise reduction by installing acoustic panels on the main walls, granting a very high-quality experience in all conditions of use.
The structure is surrounded by a beautiful park, perfect for walks, having a chat with friends or just to relax outdoors.
