Contemporary art and culture
Asilo Bianco organises several events connected to contemporary art and culture; the most important are Studi Aperti, a multidisciplinary festival, the Futura meeting, and Corto e Fieno, a rural film festival.
Studi Aperti, born in 2005, welcomes hundreds of artists and dozens of exhibition spaces, focusing on the different forms of contemporary art: architecture, music, literature, video, photography, and new technologies.
Futura welcomes the leading lights of science, medicine, technology and art, providing them with a space for open and public discussion of internationally relevant topics.
Corto e Fieno is a festival dedicated to rural film making and is divided up in three sections: Cinema Acerbo, Frutteto and La Mietitura. The goal is promoting the recovery of the tradition of the land from a modern point of view.
