Festival start: 28 June 2023      Festival end: 02 July 2023


It takes place in a very small village in the Southern Italian alps: Valloriate (Cuneo). Only 80 persons lives here.

Our challenge is to create an important cultural event with international guests, great films, meetings, art exhibitions that convince people to come up here, in the mountains, and serve as a development engine for these beautiful but abandoned "high lands".

Only by giving life back to abandoned places it is possible to think of a new ability to design, to imagine and to explore new identities, NEW WORLDS
