Alert: Event Organised by the Fondazione Romualdo Del Bianco
International Festival of Luoghi Parlanti (Talking Places), The World in Florence
The third edition will be held again this year in a hybrid format (in-person and remote), in Florence, from November 21st to 23rd, 2023.
The previous editions in 2021 and 2022 brought together over 140 speakers from 37 countries across 5 continents to share and compare their experiences and attend high-level interventions in the field of cultural and natural heritage.
Throughout over thirty-year history, it was emphasized how cultural heritage is a powerful tool for uniting people worldwide and can strongly contribute to sustainable territorial development and peaceful coexistence. The issues of the contemporary world, such as the effects of climate change and war, make these activities of comparison more and more necessary, finding synergies between the world of theory and that of practice, in order to direct all activities towards more sustainable and ethical practices.
Therefore, Festival participants (universities, local administrations, cultural operators, and businesses) will be called upon to tell the story of their territories through a storytelling of their traditional knowledge and cultural, tangible, intangible, and natural heritage, making the Festival a place for exchanging and sharing good practices from all over the world, where they can interact with various categories of interlocutors.
May you share the goals of the Festival, wish to participate and contribute to the knowledge and enhancement of your territory and its spirit. You are to download the participation call at www.theworldinflorence.com.
Attention: The discounted ‘early bird’ registration is valid until June 30, 2023
The secretariat is available to assist you in preparing your presentation.
