Cultural Innovation in Italy: The Hubs Where Contemporary Art Meets Community Art, a talk by Pier Luigi Sacco.
Cultural innovation is not just about large metropolitan areas in Italy. A large number of towns across Italy are today exploring new approaches to transformational cultural initiatives to revive socially and demographically depleted communities or to bring cultural life into traditionally inactive communities. In this talk, Prof Pier Luigi Sacco will explore some such cases to get a sense of where cultural innovation is heading in Italy and to discuss possible ways forward.

He has been the Special Adviser of the EU Commissioner for Culture and works and consults internationally on culture-driven local development, cultural and creative industries strategy and policy, and culture & wellbeing.
