Russian culture festival Russian Image runs in Padova, Italy, from 10 to 21 of March. This event is dedicated to the Silver Age. The organizers made an attempt to return 100 years back rediscovering the art of the beginning of XX century, an art-director of the festival Natalya Pirogova noted.

The festival is the crossroads for Russian compatriots living in Padova. According to Mrs Pirogova, Russian community is very active in that region. Many people join to listen to Pasternak and Mandelshtam poetry, to attend exhibitions and concerts. Russian Image festival is a great occasion to gather compatriots once again.

There was a conference dedicated to the writer Bulgakov and the philosopher Gurdgiev at the opening date of the festival, March 10. The festival will close on May 21 with dance show I Believe in You, where moms and kids will participate.
