After having interviewed Steve Green and Bob Scott, today we ask the same questions to another ECOCs expert, Franco Bianchini. He is one of the leading experts on European Capitals of Culture. Franco Bianchini was part of the jury of two competitions, the European one that in 2001 selected Cork as ECOC for 2005, and the one, chosen by the Slovenian government, which in 2007 led to the choice of Maribor as one of the two ECOCs for 2012.

Strange numerical coincidences.  On July 24, the ministry of cultural heritage in Italy issued a press release announcing that there are 24 candidate cities for the Italian capital of culture in 2024. In short, everything depends on the number 24.

We asked managers of the European capitals of culture from 2022 to 2025, five same questions to understand their expectations in a clear and concise way. Each interview is preceded by a fact sheet on that European capital of culture. The format is the same for all. At the end of the series of interviews we will try to make a synthesis of objectives, trends, expectations by the Ecocs. After NoviSad2022, Esch2022, Kaunas2022 , Veszprem2023, Eleusis2023, Timisoara2023, Tartu2024, Bodø2024, Bad Ischl – Salzkammergut 2024 and Nova Gorica - Gorizia 2025, today we talk about Chemnitz, European Capital of culture 2025.

Among the nine cities that had applied to become the European capital of culture 2027 for Latvia, the jury chose four: Valmiera, Liepāja, Daugavpils, Jūrmala.

In accordance with the calendar set out in the Annex to the Decision, in 2027 the European Capital of Culture will be given the name of one Latvian and one Portuguese city. For Latvia, this is the second opportunity to give the name of the European Capital of Culture to one of the cities. In 2014, the name was given to two European cities – the capital of Latvia – Riga and Umeå in Sweden.
