Always an independent and research festival, Corto e Fieno was born in 2010 from an idea of ​​the Asilo Bianco Association and is directed by Paola Fornara and Davide Vanotti. The thirteenth edition is scheduled in Ameno, Miasino and Omegna on Thursday 6, Friday 7, Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 October, among cinemas, ancient barns and historic villas. It is the only film festival in Italy dedicated entirely to the world of the countryside, with screenings and meetings dedicated to cinema that looks at the land, its fruits and those who take care of it.

LunaDora is the full and broad participation of neighborhood residents, a new story of participation through the contribution of beauty and the spread of culture even after sunset. A corner of Aurora that appears in its totality and heterogeneity, where every individual and participating community can feel free to express themselves by offering their contribution with spontaneity and confidence. Its aim is to make tangible the image of a “safe place” of Lungo Dora Naples on the eastern side of the Domenico Carpanini bridge through the promotion of cultural, recreational and educational activities that favor the promotion of the area, with the participation of residents, families, children * and children * with the aim – in the long term – to strengthen the dimension of trust and the sense of belonging to the community.

LunaDora is a collaboration between APS Islands, Locanda sul Fiume, Porta Palazzo Community Foundation, Pigments Association and APS White Asylum. This is a project carried out in the context of ToNite, which is co-financed by the UIA – Urban Innovative Actions program within the framework of the European Regional Development Fund, with the contribution of the city of Turin.
