The hug of Bergamo Walls is a world record: 11.507 participants.
Sunday, July 3 rd : Bergamo becomes a Guinness World Records city.
It was a love record, actually: the largest hug in history. People from Bergamo and from outside, close to one another, came together to ask for the Venetian Walls to be included in the UNESCO world heritage list.
The result was really unbelievable: children, adults and elderly people joined the event to show their deep love towards an art and engineering masterpiece built almost 500 years ago.
