UK Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden, few days ago has launched the competition to find the UK’s next City of Culture. The competition, delivered by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) in collaboration with the devolved administrations, will use culture as a catalyst for levelling up areas outside London and put culture at the heart of their plans to recover from the impact of the pandemic.

In 2025, when Chemnitz is the European Capital of Culture, the legendary International Peace Ride will be revived. The European Peace Ride project, which was developed as part of the application for the title, will start this year with one or two stages for ambitious recreational cyclists. The two stages will take 78 riders on 11 and 12 September 2021 over 413 kilometres and around 5500 metres of altitude difference from Chemnitz to Prague and back.

The Municipality of Nova Gorica as a part of GO! 2025 – The European Capital of Culture, invites artists to create proposals for urban interventions as wall paintings or wall installations. In May and June 2021, their border area will host two major and important events: the Giro d’Italia and the Biking Race of Slovenia, which will attract wide attention from the international public.

The selection panel recommended Nova Gorica as the Slovenian city that will be named the European Capital of Culture 2025 (ECoC), together with the German city of Chemnitz.

Se la Germania ha già deciso che la capitale europea della cultura per il 2025 sarà Chemnitz, la Slovenia ancora dovrà scegliere fra le quattro città entrate in short list: Ljubljana, Nova Gorica, Piran e Ptuj.
