Exemplary research questions and topics include, but are not limited to, the following

  • What about the role of Festivals in the digital age?
  • What about the economic model of Festivals in the digital age?
  • Social Innovation and cultural festivals: actual challenges and perspectives
  • New approaches and new audiences, considering also the role of digital technologies
  • New approaches and challenges to educational programs of cultural festivals and their possible impact from the digital revolution
