Cultural and Creative Industries
We promote and develop new models and investments in cultural and creative industries through new entrepreneurial policies for the growth of the sector starting from their actors, thus fostering collaboration between creatives, artists, experts, researchers and entrepreneurs.
We are shaping the future of creative cities by developing sustainable models, starting from the European Capitals of Culture.
