While in Italy the city of youth, Potenza, in Basilicata, the same region as Matera, European Capital of Culture in 2019, has just been named, in the rest of Europe work is underway to name the European capital of youth for 2027.

There is an increasingly important issue affecting cities and the lives of citizens: it is the relationship between the centre and the neighbourhood.

It is an honour to have participated these days in the meeting organised by Eu Japan fest in Tokyo to present some of the most interesting Japanese artists to all the European capitals of culture.

The month of September will be very important for a number of European cities that want to win the title of European Capital of Culture. In September, in fact, the evaluation panel will have to suggest the European Capital of Culture 2029 for Poland, choosing among the four short-listed cities: Bielsko-Biała, Katowice, Kołobrzeg, Lublin. And also in September it will be known which cities in Belgium have decided to participate in the competition for European Capital of Culture in 2030.

If there is one person who knows the world of European cultural capitals better than anyone, it is Sylvain Pasqua. And not only because of his professional role, but also because he cares about the future of a united Europe and its cities.

Although winter temperatures are low, these are very warm days for two Swedish cities: Kiruna, above the Arctic Circle, and the university city Uppsala, in central Sweden. They are the only two Swedish cities that have decided to compete for the title of European Capital of Culture in 2029.

The competition in Poland for ecoc 2029 is in full swing. After Krakow (2000) and Wroclaw (2016) in 2029 it will be the third time of a European capital of culture in Poland.Twelve cities in Poland had applied to become the European Capital of Culture 2029.

With the nomination of Bourges (France) in the past few days, the picture of the European Capitals of Culture for 2028 has closed: Budweiss (Czech Republic), Skopje (Northern Macedonia) and Bourges (France). Now all eyes are on 2029, when it will be the turn of Sweden and Poland to name the European Capital of Culture.

In the end, Bourges will be the European Capital of Culture in 2028 for France. A title it will share with Budweiss for the Czech Republic and Skopje for North Macedonia.

While all eyes are on France, which on 13 December will make known which of the four cities in the running (Rouen. Bourges, Montpellier and Clermont - Ferrand) will be European Capital of Culture in 2028 together with Budweis (Czech Republic), the competition in Poland for ecoc 2029 is in full swing.
