Cultural innovation is not just about large metropolitan areas in Italy. There is a constellation of towns across the inner parts of the Italian territory which is today exploring new approaches to transformational cultural initiatives to revive socially and demographically depleted communities or to bring cultural life in 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.
Pier Luigi Sacco is Senior Advisor at OECD, Professor of Cultural Economics at IULM University Milan, Senior Researcher at metaLAB (at) Harvard, Cambridge MA, and at FBK Trento. He has been the Special Advisor 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.
