Fieui di Caruggi

The "Fieui di Caruggi" are a group of friends from Albenga, known to the public for their activities in favor of the territory and for their praiseworthy charitable initiatives. The Fieui were born in 1989 during a first meeting between friends who had childhood in common in the alleys of Albenga. From there, this group of "brats" led by Gino Rapa , has undertaken a series of engaging initiatives for the good of the city they love. All this, always symbolized by the Slingshot , symbol of the rebellion in the Albenga dominated by the French in 1798 but today used by them as an instrument against injustice and in favor of the weakest.

Wooden Slingshot

The "Wooden Slingshot" prize is awarded to those who in life have been able to throw good shots against violence, scams and have been able to fight in defense of solidarity and the values of life. The first wooden slingshot was assigned in 2007 to Antonio Ricci , who fought so that 4 skyscrapers of 80 meters were not built on the edge of our historic center. It was then awarded to the trio of comedians Balbontin, Ceccon and Casalino, Fabrizio De Andrè (prize received by Dori Ghezzi), Paolo Villaggio, Milena Gabanelli, Roberto Vecchioni & Don Gallo, Carlin Petrini, Don Mazzi, Fiorella Mannoia, Javier Zanetti, Nomadi & Brunello Cucinelli, Michelle Hunziker & Giulia Bongiorno, Giulia Brignano and Don Ciotti in 2019.

We run the sling

We run the slingshot is a non-competitive sporting event, which takes place every year in Spring. Members walk along the avenues, the promenade, the riverside and cross the historic center in one breath. The event is organized by the Fieui di Caruggi, together with the Albenga Runners who regularly do not leave out anything to make the day unforgettable.

October De Andrè

"October Deandrè" is an event born by chance in 2011 and immediately approved by Dori Ghezzi , widow of Fabrizio De Andrè and godmother of the event. October De Andrè takes place successfully every month of October and sees various artists on stage at the Ambra Theater who pay homage to the well-known Genoese singer-songwriter.

In recent editions, guests of the caliber of Roby Facchinetti, Alba Parietti, Ron, Max Pezzali, Vittorio De Scalzi (founder of the New Trolls) have participated. The whole city is involved with pride and the proceeds are always destined for charity. As they defined, "no special effects, but a lot of heart".
