the first European festival on creativity

2019

“The best way to predict future is to create it”. Abraham Lincoln’s words inspired the leitmotiv of the sixteenth edition of Festival della Mente, the first European festival on creativity and birth of ideas. The concept of "future" has always been important and necessary for the human mind, but it takes on particular meaning in an era like ours, full of social changes, technological transformations and unknowns that weight on the present.
With the usual multidisciplinary and popular approach, the festival wonders about the possible scenarios that await us in the scientific and humanistic field, without forgetting that in order to look to the future one needs to know the past. And with the certainty - as Lincoln reminds us – that, to imagine the future we want, it is necessary to create and invent a new reality starting from today. Without delay.
I hope that the festival, through the competent and passionate voices of the speakers, will be able to convey the conviction that we can and must all become "inventors of the future".
