Manifattura Tabacchi

 

What does the future hold for cities?

 

The third edition of Many Possible Cities, a festival from Manifattura Tabacchi on urban regeneration, represents an ideal place to present and discuss the latest ideas and concepts around the future of cities, and how to transform them into concrete actions.

Three days of talks, workshops and exhibitions to stimulate the minds of those who are imagining and planning the city of tomorrow, exploring ideas that look at art, the temporary use of spaces, and green thinking.

More than twenty international guests will speak about the challenges of urban regeneration and their vision for its future, speaking about their own experiences and offering real-world examples of how diversity can drive transformation for the city of the future.

The interviews and talks at Many Possible Cities are also available in live streaming on manifatturatabacchi.com and radiopapesse.org.
