Arts and Cultural Exchanges

Our Sister City


City Program Date
Genoa Spring 2022

Euroflora is a large European exhibition of flowers and plants and takes place every other year in our sister city of Genoa, Italy. The event brings in approximately 280,000 visitors and the City of Columbus has been assigned a plot of land to build an exhibit in 2022.

Greater Columbus Sister Cities International (GCSCI) launched a local competition to find a design to represent the City of Columbus at Euroflora. The winning design belonged to Alexandra Fresch. Fresch is an Independent Artist & Glass Instructor in Columbus, Ohio where she is the Marketing & Gallery Manager at Glass Axis. 

Euroflora Design Winner, Alexandra Fresch

Since Sister Cities are the bridges that join cities around the world, the theme for the design is Bridging Columbus to Genoa. The dates of Euroflora 2022 are April 23 – May 8 in Genoa. Stay tuned for more updates about this project!
