We will continue to stand by their side, especially in the most difficult times, such as those that the whole world is going through because of the pandemic".

On its way from temporary to contemporary, Kaunas has also become the city of contemporary art.

The year 2022 will enhance the contemporary vibes with international highlights, brave declarations and globally praised personalities.

With a Bidbook entitled "Cultivating curiosity" the Slovak city of Trencin has won the title of European capital of culture for 2026.

If the Italian Capital of Culture for 2024 were measured on the basis of its digital activity, the two Apulian cities Conversano and Mesagne would certainly be included in the short list, which will be announced in January, while the Lucanian town of Aliano would remain excluded from the competition, since it has not thought, at least to date, of opening social channels on the candidacy.
