After weeks of meeting, discussions and dibates, the four thematic groups will present their works in a public event in Salone de’ Cinquecento in Palazzo Vecchio.

Digital transition, climate change, immigration and asylum policies and economic policies and social justice: these themes, all discussed during the Conference on the Future of Europe, are the objects of our project, that will end in the week of Festival d’Europa.
