The main European project of Liverpool 2008 is Cities on the Edge, featuring five other cities with similar characteristics – Naples, Marseilles, Istanbul, Gdansk, Bremen.
They are all ports, cities with great histories, cities which have battled with their capital cities over many centuries, cities famous for their creativity, humour, distinctiveness, love of football.
They are also cities which are sometimes considered by their countrymen to be difficult and unruly. Throughout the year there will be a series of collaborations, exchanges, conferences, debates, performances and activities.
