Universal Forum of Cultures 2013
The Forum of Cultures in Naples will be characterized by the particular attention devoted to the cities as places of democracy and direct participation. Symbolically the Forum will host 101 cities: each day one will be protagonist of the event. A special section will be devoted to the Mediterranean area. To the four main themes: Conditions For Peace, Sustainable Development, Knowledge and Cultural Difference, Naples has added that of the "Memory of the future: knowing its own roots to plan a common future". Naples, temporal hinge among past, present and future, starts from its millennial history to reconsider the modernization of the city.
