Creativity and Innovation in Tuscany - October 21st/24th

October is the month of the Festival della Creatività, an international appointment to discover what creative people are doing in and outside Tuscany. The festival is a mix of art, design, urbanism, science, architecture, education, new technologies, cinema, music and literature. In previous years the event took place in the Fortezza da Basso, an ex-fortress now used as a congress center, but now it will be in various locations around the city. You may find an exhibition in a museum, a video presentation in the library, a concert in an old prison. The list of events is huge, so take some time to read the program. Every year a country is chosen as the guest of honor of  Festival della Creatività. This year this country is France and there are many France-related events like the exhibition about Felix Nadar, the first man that defended photography as an art. To celebrate 100 years of his death from October 13th there is an exhibition in Museo Marino Marini.
