The event, of which has been a media partner since the first edition in 2013, has among its peculiarities the contamination and comparison between knowledge, bringing together science and history, technology and philosophy, entrepreneurship and justice, giving life to unusual mixes capable of triggering unexpected comparisons, even beyond the notoriety (in itself very high) of individual guests. "This is the formula that we are experimenting with more and more success, because it knows how to amaze and tickle the curiosity of the public, but above all it allows you to forcefully bring out and grasp the great contemporary themes in advance", summarizes for Danco Singer , director of the Festival together with Rosangela Bonsignorio.
