Accepted or feared, denied or worth to be fight for, it is a unique feature of man: this is “social relation”, the main theme in Camogli from September 10thto 13th2020, at the 7thCommunication Festival.
The well-known Communication Festival, cultural event, now at its 7thEdition, which each year propose a different theme of reflection and debate. Everything is even more special in the extraordinary background ofCamogli.
Conceived by Umberto Eco, and direct by Rosangela Bonsignorio and Danco Singer, the Festival is organized by Frame in collaboration with Camogli City Hall. It offers events with free access (until all the seats are occupied).
The event has been organized in compliance of the new preventive procedures against Covid 19.
SOCIAL RELATION: WHAT IT IS ABOUT
A delicate theme that reflects the current events. It takes a deeper meaning as it is debated in the year in which social relationship has been denied with the intent to protect as much as possible our safety.
Let’s clarify this.
Social relation is that particular inclination towards bonds, on the base of compatibility, solidarity inspired by needs, interest or other particular necessities, as for example for defence in situations of conflicts. It is the fundamental of our society, what makes interpersonal relationships possible, and the disposition to understand the other while accepting the differences and to cooperate beyond the family bond.
There are some people who look for it and cannot live without it, others that try to escape from it, deny it and think of it as a danger to avoid.
These considerations will be the starting points for the debate of the Festival, where these ideas will be analysed and further explored in the interventions programmed with over 100 lecturers.
THE EVENT 2020: THE GUESTS
Protagonists of the scientific, cultural, technological, artistical, economics, business, show business and entertainment community will debate the theme from different points of view, with different registers.
