The Festival’s project is to address creativity and its processes with the help of such unique witnesses as the thinkers, theoreticians, scholars of the mind who will offer our audiences a total of 39 unique workshops, lectures, and performances designed on purpose for them. We are hoping to make these three days of meetings and discussions a true and proper celebration of the mind and of free thought, meant for all those who seek instruments in order to understand themselves and the surrounding reality—for all those who believe that culture is a crucial tool to improve our lives. Every year the Festival’s director Giulia Cogoli, discusses the topics ahead of time with the prospective speakers in view of offering something new: a sort of common journey rather than just a list of events. Thus, after more than 400 events successfully designed and staged with the cooperation of over 300 intellectuals, the challenge continues in our quest for innovative and stimulating topics to be addressed in a pleasant, informal atmosphere.
