|Tocatì, Festival Internazionale dei Giochi in Strada (International Festival of Street Games)|
15/09/2016 - 18/09/2016Verona
Assoziazione Giochi Antichi (AGA) (Italy)
Tocatì - Festival Internazionale dei Giochi in strada - International Festival of Street Games - is a cultural event initiated and promoted by the Associazione Giochi Antichi AGA (Ancient Games Association) and the Association Européenne Jeux et Sports Traditionnels (AEJeST), in cooperation with the Municipality of Verona. AGA has started this community-based festival putting in the streets the practices and traditions of games to share and enhance the dynamics of the social life of urban spaces in a double perspective: a commitment on the recognition of Intangible Cultural Heritage and a growing attention to sustainable development. Verona, its monuments and its historical centre, Unesco World Heritage site, becomes then a place for people meeting other cultural communities in a free spirit and sharing of cultural diversity expressions and values. At the same time the revitalisation of these social practices renews the link between the city and its surroundings, giving an impulse to the local economy in a sustainable way.

Regione Lombardia - Assessorato alle Culture, Identita e Autonomie (Italy)
L’initiative d’Octobre 2015 à Monza qui a lieu en parallèle de l’Expo Milan 2015 est dédiée au patrimoine culturel immatériel, et cherche à établir un lien entre le patrimoine culturel et le patrimoine paysager. Dans ce contexte, le patrimoine représente la transition entre un passé de conservation et de valorisation à un processus d’innovation, donnant de la vigueur au sens de l’Histoire et de la transmission, mais tout en faisant attention de se situer dans l’avenir.
