Countless Cities, la Biennale delle Città del Mondo.
28 Giugno - 27 Ottobre 2019
Farm Cultural Park
Favara

Si stima che la terra sia oggi abitata da 7,7 miliardi di persone.
Più della metà della popolazione mondiale vive in ambienti urbani e il processo di abbandono delle campagne è destinato ad intensificarsi.
I cambiamenti climatici, gli sconvolgimenti economici e la migrazione globale verso le città definiranno il futuro dell’umanità.
Ma cosa sono le città? Come funzionano?
Perché amiamo alcune città più di altre?
A fine giugno 2019, Countless Cities sarà la prima edizione di una mostra biennale di Farm Cultural Park, che coinvolge fotografi, artisti, architetti e creativi che con diversi approcci e linguaggi ci raccontano non solo le Città ma anche le buone pratiche e le idee innovative che contribuiscono a renderle speciali.
I tre temi principali della prima edizione saranno la governance, le città resilienti e la nuova consapevolezza dei giovani.

Countless Cities, the Biennial of the Cities of the World.
June 28th - October 27th 2019
Farm Cultural Park
Favara

It is estimated that the earth is today inhabited by 7.7 billion people. More than half of the world's population lives in urban environments and the process of abandoning the countryside continues to escalate. Climate change, economic upheaval, and global migration towards cities will define the future of humanity. What is a city? How does it work? Why do we love some cities more than others?
Countless Cities is a biennial exhibition, launching in June 2019, at Farm Cultural Park, a contemporary arts center in the midst of the rural town of Favara on the island of Sicily. The Farm is an ambitious urban renewal project that has transformed the run-down and semi-abandoned heart of Favara into a modern art exhibition and community space. Visitors have come from around the world to experience the art and ideas bursting forth from the Sette Cortili (Seven Courtyards) location of the Farm and Favara has been revitalized as a result. The Farm has several gallery spaces, a bookshop, apartments, restaurants, and hotels and has gained international recognition.
The Countless Cities exhibition includes photographers, artists, architects and creatives who tell us about the innovative practices that contribute to making cities around the world special. These practices intersect the following three themes - governance first, resilient cities and youth woke.
The first edition of Countless Cities is inspired by Africa. The exhibitions will be spread throughout the towns of Favara and neighboring Agrigento.
