Societies, cultures and games' : this is the title of the 7th edition of 'Dialogues sull'uomo', one of the most anticipated events in Pistoia, which will take place in the historic centre of the city from 27th to 29th May Three days of talks, readings and meetings presented in a language accessible to all and aimed at an audience interested in understanding today's reality through investigation and research of new tools. After the huge success of last year, which counted the presence of over 20, participants , Pistoia - Dialoghi sull'uomo returns with a new theme, that is inextricably tied to philosophy, history and anthropology but at the same time tied to the contemporary world: just think of video games, virtual reality, role play until you get to the disorder of compulsive gambling. Often the term ' game ' is reductively associated with simple recreational activities for children. In fact, it has always been the centre of culture as humanity is also built through fiction, the foreshadowing of certain situations and simulation. As the Dutch historian Johan Huizinga wrote 'Culture starts in a playful form ' and it is in this direction that the festival of Pistoia festival in Italy will develop with events that should not be missed!
What does this mean? Each year, The Ministry of Culture, Heritage and Turism selects on city as part of an initiative to support and promote projects relating to culture. One reason that this little city in Tuscany won was the importance Pistoia has given to culture in its broadest sense for many years. So, with a calendar packed full of theatre, music, art and activities, Pistoia is gearing up for a full year of cultural enrichment. The program includes renovating historic monuments to create space for exhibits and will be featuring events showcasing local, Italian a nd international talents and working with the community to highlight their unique and special cultural profile.
Over the last nine years, the event has been galvanised by cultural and civil commitment and by the desire to involve the widest possible audience during three days of encounters, lessons, shows and readings in the historic heart of Pistoia. This festival of cultural research into contemporary anthropology aims to offer participants new perspectives on human societies. It does this by allowing experts from different fields to compare outlooks in a discussion going beyond the boundaries between disciplines to propose entirely new observations of our world today. Dialogues offers a new way of performing cultural analyses , novel both for the anthropological approach it was a forerunner in adopting this method , and for the production of cultural content. Indeed, a continued commitment to offer audiences conferences, shows and unusual encounters over the years has seen the festival grow, complemented by several other initiatives: a collection of books published by UTET, a large archive of audio and video recordings, a school project that has involved approximately 25, students and a series of major photographic exhibitions.
