Leggendo Metropolitano obtains the Patronage of the European Parliament
For the second consecutive year, the International Festival of Cultures and Innovative Techniques received the patronage of the European Parliament. We sincerely thank the European Parliament for their renewed trust within the European Year of Cultural Heritage. Since the beginning, we have been contributing to encouraging and raising awareness on growth and respect of the values of family, intercultural dialogue and twine of arts and professions, all elements that we consider essential.
These are the words of the President of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani: I certify with great pleasure that the festival goes on this year with a new edition in the spirit of traditions, history, culture, creativity and science, celebrated thanks to a multidisciplinary approach. Your initiative offers an important space for reflection, discussion, exchange of ideas and experiences, that will contribute to encouraging intercultural and intergenerational dialogue, social inclusion and sense of belonging to the community. At the same time, it will promote tourism and cooperation at national and international level. The topic of family, to which this edition is dedicated, is extremely pertinent. Family is, at the same time, the essential nucleus of society and the cradle of local, national and international identity. During the years, the European Union became itself a family in which all members are united in diversity.
