Tommaso Sacchi in conversation with Simon Gammell and Marisa Garreffa
11 May 2021 - 18:00
Tommaso Sacchi, Florence’s dynamic young Assessore alla Cultura, joins us to discuss how can we reactive a vibrant contemporary creative scene for Florence, and what is the role of the international community in the contemporary cultural life of Florence.
- How can we facilitate a return of vibrant contemporary arts in the centre that increases the liveability and diversity of the city?
- What are the major blocks facing our contemporary artists across all genres, and how can we navigate ways through and around them?
- Where do we experiment and take risks? Where do unknown and emerging creatives get seen?
- How can the Florentine community and the international community work together to activate spaces and generate adequate support for contemporary creativity in the city – to enhance liveability for both the temporary and permanent residents of Florence?
