Bollicine Tango Marathon, 2nd Ed. Fortino Green = CO2 free

We are very happy to announce the 2nd edition of Bollicine, after the great success of the 1st edition in May 2019.
This time it will be even more special!
In fact you will not participate in a simple tango event, this marathon is the first project of a long-term fundraising campaign to build a zero-emissions & zero-waste dancing sports center by installing a photovoltaic panels plant on our roofs.

We can do it if thousands of us believe in it. We can do great things even through dancing!

➡ A 100 volunteers built the Fortino in 2016 (its wooden floor, light and soundproofing system, painting etc..)!
➡ Nowadays over 4,000 members are dancing in the Fortino Milonga!

❤ Join and support us!

Bollicine Tango Marathon, 2a Ed. Fortino Green = zero CO2

Siamo molto felici di annunciare la 2a edizione di Bollicine tango marathon, dopo il successo della prima edizione di maggio 2020.
Questa volta sarà ancora più speciale!
Infatti non parteciperai ad un semplice evento di tango: questa maratona è il primo progetto di una lunga campagna di raccolta fondi per costruire un centro sportivo a zero emissioni CO2 e zero consumi, attraverso l’installazione di impianti di pannelli fotovoltaici e altri dispositivi.

Possiamo farcela se ci crediamo in migliaia! Possiamo fare grandi cose anche ballando!

➡ In 100 volontari abbiamo costruito il Fortino nel 2016 (il suo pavimento in legno, sistema audio e luci, installato i pannelli fonoassorbenti, verniciato pareti…)
➡ Oltre 4.000 soci stanno ballando al Fortino!

❤ Unisciti a noi e supportaci!

After the great success of many other marathons, we would like to welcome our friends and dearest dancers in a brand new event where the world-renowned Prosecco will flow like a river.

If you have been invited to Bollicine it is because of being special to us in creating the friendly atmosphere we aim to generate in our marathons, where good level of dancing, positive and joyful energy are the most important ingredients. 

The marathon will start on Friday 29th of May and it will end with the afternoon milonga on Sunday 31st May.

You can join us one day earlier for the Pre-Party on Thursday and stay with us a bit more for the After Party on Sunday night.

Il Fortino

BOLLICINE TANGO MARATHON takes place at the sports facility FORTINO, a beautiful space in the heart of the city, a few steps from the center and the colorful and renowned Balon market (the largest market in Europe for antiques, vintage items, fruit and vegetables ).
A spacious and very bright dancing room of 700 square meters with windows and views of the river, with over 400 square meters of wooden parquet to ensure all the dancers the most enjoyable and comfortable experience.
The creation of Fortino ballroom is the last achievement of the sports-amateur association Danzen, the organizer of this event.
The project was launched in April 2016 and started with the renovation of a bowling camp, a space previously underutilized given the small number and the advanced age of the players.
The construction and maintenance work began on 11 July 2016. Just two months later, on 17 September 2016, an inaugural milonga was successfully organized thanks to the untiring voluntary work of over 60 tango & swing dancers. Thanks to the fundraising campaign and the loans kindly given by the members of the Association over 100 thousand Euros were invested for the modernization, soundproofing, safety and repaving of the structure. All that in more than 22,000 hours of work done by the volunteers!

Nowadays a very large group of volunteers takes care of the facility, organizing different dancing activities like the regular milonga on Saturdays and a lot of workshops and regulars classes as well.

This is our strenght: a very large staff that loves with all the heart the Fortino ballroom, literally built brick by brick from all of us!
The Fortino can now be considered to all effects one of safest and most beautiful multi-functional sports halls in Europe.

How to reach the Fortino

The Fortino is close to Porta Susa Station (one of the two main stations in the city, where the metro, high speed trains and shuttle services converge from various nearby airports – Turin Caselle, Milan Malpensa, Bergamo Orio al Serio)

  • From the airport (Turin Caselle) to Fortino:  SADEM shuttle bus every half an hour takes you to Porta Susa station (more info here) + Bus 10N towards MASSARI to reach the Fortino (by taxi from the airport its around 35 euros)

  • From Porta Nuova station to Fortino: take the metro towards FERMI, get off at bus stop XVIII Dicembre + bus 10N (by taxi its around 15 euros)

  • From Porta Susa station to Fortino: bus 10N towards MASSARI (by taxi its around 10 euros)


The city of Turin is a brewing ground for cultural innovation, hosting numerous theatre, dance and art festivals throughout the year. Believed by some to be the European capital of tango thanks to the over 5000 dancers and dozens of active milongas during the week, it is a city rich of history
and modernity. Founded in 300 b.c., it was the first capital city of Italy long time before Rome. It hosted the XX Olympic games in 2006 and is the birth place of many “Made in Italy” products such as Martini, Gianduja chocolate, Lavazza coffee and the car giant FIAT.
