RomaEuropa Festival: an experience of cultural innovation through the arts

romaeuropa12The “Arts as Cultural Diplomacy” Conference organized by the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy in August 2012 was a great opportunity for young people to present their ideas and projects concerning arts and how they can become a powerful tool in the practice of Cultural Diplomacy.
One of the project that was presented during the Conference was called “RomaEuropa Festival: an experience of cultural innovation through the arts” and it was written by Dr. Andrea Ragusa.
The paper focuses on one of the most important experiences in the field of arts and innovation in Italy and Europe, that is the “RomaEuropa Festival”, created by the Socialist Minister of Tourism Giovanni Pieraccini, and the Director of the French Academy in Rome, Jean-Marie Drot.
The aim of the paper is pointing out some elements that mark this experience as an important example of cultural diplomacy: both from the thematic point of view – linking tradition and modernity, creativity and innovation – and from the organizational one: presenting Festivals with lots of participant from Europe and from the world, and in particular linking East and West of Europe, and opening some important chances to the
dialogue between democratic and communist Europe till 1991.
