AMOR VINCIT RAIN

Yesterday, July 9th, as Verona lay prey to a capricious rainstorm, 180 people divided into 50 teams went on a hunt for the famed bow and arrows of Eros. The game we organized is part of a larger event called Percorsi (Itineraries), set up by the Quintegia company. This event is the first appointment on schedule for the “Emotional Academy”, which is a collection of initiatives geared towards stimulating the processes of critical thinking.

Starting point: Palazzo della Gran Guardia

Finishing point: [We’re not telling!]

To complete the game and reach the finishing point, each team had to find the keyword, which was the last sentence contained in the jumbled gamebook.

We had lots of fun in spite of the rain and once again, we proved that playing in city streets can become an essential tool to achieve diverse goals, meet people and – why not – create business opportunities. After a two-hour search that didn’t fail to produce a few moments of intense competition, the game ended in style with a great buffet for everyone.  Love 1, Rain 0!

On a midsummer night, it’s a dream come true to play in Verona!

Verona is calling and we’re ready for an event in the city of lovers. On Friday, June 19th, Verona’s opera season opens with a romantic spectacle: Bizet’s Carmen.
The city will draw crowds for this première and while arias resonate from the Arena, it will be fun to play in the streets and squares. So, our appointment is set for Friday, June 19th at 9:00pm in Piazza delle Erbe. As usual, you’ll just need to bring one Amor Verona gamebook per team (groups of 3 or 4 people work best) and a mobile phone to communicate during the challenge. A flashlight and a map of the city will also be helpful. We’ll start the game at the meeting point and the challenge will last about three hours. For the first team to arrive at the final stage, there’ll be a surprise — don’t miss out!
