A Quarter-Century-Old Goa Closes the Door

The owner of the venue, Giancarlino, stated that the new club is under construction.

Goa, one of the most famous clubs in Italy with a history of 26 years in Rome, brought down the curtain as of November. The founder of the venue, Giancarlino, said that the reason for the closure was that the club was demolished for the university and they could not prevent it anyway.

“We have done everything possible to stay where we are, but every proposal made has been rejected.”

The last event of the venue, where various organizations and parties were held until the last day, was ‘Goa Club After Tea‘ on October 31st. The club, which managed to fit 8 parties in the last 10 days, closed its doors with this event.

In addition to all these, Giancarlino told the press that the new club is about to open and the official date will be announced in the coming days. The boss, who hinted that the new club will be broader and more comprehensive, added:

“For the new era of Goa we have identified two possible locations, very beautiful and larger than the current spaces. This will allow us to prepare a Goa Club 2.0 with a greater openness to art, including exhibition spaces, workshops and recording studios open during the day.”

In addition, the residents of Goa will continue their duties in the new location, such as Adiel, GNMR, Domenico Rosa, Orli, Giammarco Orsini, Francesco Maria and Andrea Saba. The founder Giancarlino, who narrated the long-term story of Goa, which started 26 years ago with names such as Proietti, Caccetta and Di Filippo, summarized it as follows:

“We created Goa Club 26 years ago through a thousand sacrifices, we were young and with little money in our pockets. We found these warehouses behind the old general market and today only crazy people like us could have opened a place there and redeveloped the area of ​​Via Libetta in that way. An area that, at the time, was completely bare and devoid of nightlife. I leave with many memories of affections and friends who have passed between these walls.”
