In 2023, thanks to the holiday Monday the Spring Break Tango Party will take place in a looooong weekend: we’ll dance from Friday afternoon to Monday afternoon (no warmup or after marathon), so the basic packages will include three nights in an all-inclusive formula, not two as usual.
The marathon is an optimally sized event: role-balanced, friendly atmosphere, perfect dancefloor (floating wooden laminate with 5mm absorbent mat), relaxing social area, and lots of windows to have the full day and night experience!
Participants will be hosted a few meters away from the dancefloor, in the double, triple/quadruple rooms of the Torre Marina Residence. This is not luxury accommodation, but you will find all you need to spend relaxing time between a tanda and… another one!
The package is straightly ALL-INCLUSIVE, so the marathon price includes:
4 DAYS OF TANGO PARTY with afternoon, evening and night milongas from FRIDAY 28 April to Monday 1 May (music will stop at 20:00), with snacks and beverages during the event.
3 NIGHTS ACCOMMODATIONS IN ALL-INCLUSIVE FORMULA (in rooms with private bathroom) comprehensive of 3 dinners (Friday - Sunday), 3 breakfasts (Saturday- Monday), and 3 lunches (Saturday-Monday).

Because we care about your feet and knees a dancefloor in wood laminate (with a 5mm shock-absorbing mat) will be specially built for the event.

The twin rooms have 2 single beds.

A BIT OF HISTORY
The tower named Torre Balilla, Torre Fiat or Torre Marina, was built in 1933, in just 90 days and with the work of 1,000 men, commissioned by Giovanni Agnelli (owner of the FIAT industry) and created on a project by Vittorio Bonadè-Bottino. The tower, which represents a strong visual signal of landscape, was conceived as a giant helix that rotates around the a central well formed by the ramp of stairs. The foundations are based directly on the sand.
Placed in the Apuan pine forest, the complex of the colony was destined to summer holiday of FIAT employees' children. Over time, the Colonia Fiat has not undergone major transformations external. Saved from the bombings of World War II, was used as a military hospital. Between 1991 and 1992 were carried out renovations in order to host the Residence Marina Tower.
