Bologna is the capital of the contemporaneity, a city fully oriented to experimentation, research, new exploration, in every domain of knowledge.
In defining its vocation, contribute many cultural events: privately organized but in synergy with public institutions, they found in the festival form a privileged way to research and share the outcome with the audience; they also found a way to build strong nets with other organizations beyond the national borders.
In Bologna, culture is experience. 'Bologna Contemporanea' encourages everyone to move into the present.
