The Festival d'Europa is billed as "Over 100 cultural events, workshops, exhibitions, shows, scientific and didactic initiatives to meet EU."
From the website:
From 7th to 12th May 2013 the Festival Of Europe returns to Florence, an occasion to reflect on future Europe, a laboratory of communication between the European Union and its citizens and a display of the Union's activities and its member states. The event proposes to highlight the “European calling” of the Tuscany region and its capital, which will become again the capital of the old continent for five days. In the city squares, cultural centres, theatres and schools, the cultural events, exhibitions, performances, educational and scientific initiatives and gatherings inflected according to the keywords of the European year - citizenship, participation, work, youth, culture, peace, democracy, future, will come to life.
A true and real encounter with Europe and its establishing values; an occasion to share a mindful European citizenship in order to promote it.
