Event postponed until a later date.


A day devoted to the presentation of the results of the interventions of the EU cohesion policy in the area of the Parco delle Cascine in Florence with walks, meetings and happy hour.

The walk, organised by Tempo Nomade, focuses on the relationship between citizens and this green area, in a historical overview that goes from the Renaissance to the present day. The narration will be linked to the direct vision of the places, revealing the origin of toponyms such as the one of the ditch called first “bandito” and then “macinante”. Participants in the walk will be accompanied to discover the naturalistic aspects and architectural interventions settled over time: from the Source of Narcissus, where Shelley wrote his “Ode to the west wind”, up to the former Grand Ducal Stables, now the seat of PARC Performing Arts Research Centre.

After the walk, the day will end with at Parc Bistrò (the PARC’s bar) with dishes from different European countries, and the participants will be offered the cross-disciplinary performance Live – Die – Repeat by a group of young artists involved in Generation Europe, a three-year educational programme that aims at strengthening the young people’s active role in society and at promoting critical reflection on topics of inclusion, education and active participation.
