the first European festival on creativity

Previous editions

2012

Sarzana’s Festival della Mente has arrived at its 9th edition, and in such a difficult year as 2012, its organizers find that discussing creativity and creative processes is an important challenge as well as an invaluable opportunity to stimulate a public debate. Nothing can be more useful than culture and intellectual endeavors to help us all understand current trends, perhaps try to change the current, alarming state of things for the better.
After the nearly 500 events of the past 8 years, attended every year by an average of 40,000 people from all over Italy, Sarzana’s Festival della Mente - Europe’s first to be entirely devoted to creative processes renews its commitment and presents its 2012 program. Its director, Giulia Cogoli, has joined forces with leading Italian and foreign intellectuals to develop a number of lectures, workshops and performances designed for a large audience.
