Festival della Mente 6th Edition

Sarzana, 3-5 September, 2010

The program of the 6th edition includes over 60 events between lectures, performances, meetings, readings, as well as workshops dedicated to children and teenagers.
After last year’s amazing success, the approfonditaMente series of events will be back with its numerus clausus lecture-workshops, greatly appreciated by our audience for offering a close and effective interaction with speakers. This year, approfonditaMente will deal with the following subjects: ethno-psychiatry; urban ethics and aesthetics; the ethology of plants; design and its functions (or non-functions); the power of music; the enigma of inspiration; the mind and walking.
