Festival of Philosophy, an opportunity to meet and socialize

Sep 9, 2013 5:15:06 PM Posted By admin admins

The program of the Festival of Philosophy in Modena this year is especially intense and eventful. The cultural event is now in its 13th edition and, once again, has been approved by the Quirinale with the High Patronage of the President of the Republic Giorgio Napolitano. This is due to the recognition of cultural, but also economic, of the event. The Philosophical Festival was founded in 2001 as an opportunity to share in the open spaces, a moment of confrontation between conversations and training lessons. The itinerant formula that favors outdoor venues, has always collected more acclaim over the years, reaching a number of quite extraordinary attendance in the past year.


The 2012 numbers are clear, well 184,123 visitors, an increase of 4.19% compared to 2011 and this year seeks to replicate, if not to overcome the presence of the past year. To attract an extraordinary number of people were mostly the lectures of Alexander Berger, Serge Latouche and Zygmunt Bauman, respectively, with the first 7,000 attendances and 6,000 others two. This is because it seems that people have a strong desire to culture, but not only, also desire to aggregation and sharing. There are many, in fact, the events of the festival, from the philosophical dinners to outdoor play, to film events, concerts, in short, a whole series of event, which attract tourists and locals alike.


The spirit of the festival is in fact to mix the crowd, including tourists and residents, under an objective of common discussion. This year the topic is love, the act of joining the opposites-as the Organizers reflection on what appears to be the oldest and controversial human activities. The days will be held the event are 13, 14, 15 September, with a full touring program between Modena, Carpi and Sassuolo. It is expected, as in previous years, an important presence of young people and students, more and more interested in a demonstration in continuous growth. Among the appointments of Modena are reported for installations "Wooden Heads and cream hearts," Puppets Modena yesterday and today and for lectures, meeting with Remo Bodei who will discuss the fatal attractions in Piazza Grande.
