Villa La Pietra

Where is the contemporary in Florence? What is unique about contemporary culture in a city so strongly marked by the artistic achievements of the past? How do contemporary artists interact with Florence’s artistic heritage and produce cutting edge new work? How does the city government preserve the city’s past while, at the same time, supporting innovation? How is Italian society and identity changing under the impact of globalization and migration?
A panel of Florentine contemporary culture actors will join us to explore these questions and more.

NYU Florence students are invited to peel back the layers of the city and to locate and explore contemporary culture in Florence.
