Auditorium del MAXXI
It is undeniable that the culture sector, after years of stagnancy, is returning to the centre of governmental debate and initiatives. Many mechanisms that had appeared to be irremediably frozen have been revived and culture finally appears to be on its way to playing a central role in the policies for the development of the country. New scenarios are emerging that arouse contemporaneously expectations and opposition. It is within this fluid context that it is necessary to make an analytical contribution the draws attention to critical issues and opportunities in the ongoing processes of reform, directing the debate towards a new definition of cultural heritage that, based on public interest and participation, overcomes the rigidity of the past.
The 12th Annual Federculture Report makes a contribution to the debate with a broad-based and detailed overview of the ongoing dynamics in the cultural sector through authoritative and topical papers and an up-to-date statistical appendix.
