The theme of the eighth edition, corresponding to the year 202, is: Curiosity.
Discovering and learning go hand in hand. And many times we do not link both concepts because we have fun uncovering stories that were silenced, unmasking faces that were unfamiliar, or undressing figures who had never felt so close. And while we research and explore we always end up surprising ourselves, conquering what we saw as unattainable, and plugging ourselves into the truth.
Curiosity moves us and binds us to reality: it reveals what we don’t know, it shows what we don’t want to display, and it externalises our interior. The process has the function of uncovering our weaknesses, of fervently investigating what was previously shown to us with discretion and of finding, in everyday life, the maximum rarities and complicities. This whole mechanism results in the authenticity of people, the accuracy of our thinking, and the unequivocal assertion that as we discover we are educated, trained, and we learn non-stop.
