Pesaro, Italian Capital of Culture 2024. Echoes of heritage, waves of innovation

By Monday, 05 February 2024 10:00

Pesaro, designated the Italian Capital of Culture 2024, has embarked on a journey that will involve the entire province throughout the year. 

Together with its citizens, artists, professionals, inhabitants, associations, tourists and stakeholders, the final objective is the transformation of unconscious identity into cultural heritage. This will be achieved through a participatory process based on an idea of widespread, inclusive culture in dialogue with the environment. Daniele Vimini, Pesaro’s deputy mayor and councillor for beauty emphasized that the calendar does not just represent a succession of events but serves as a focal point for the valorization of each of the province’s 50 municipalities.

In addition to the city of Pesaro, the rich calendar of events features the 50x50 Capitals Squared project, involving the 50 municipalities in the province of Pesaro and Urbino that stretch from the Apennine mountain range to the Adriatic Sea. Each of these municipalities in turn will be Capital for one week during the year. The 12-month programme, which started in January with the Medieval town of Vallefoglia and ends in December in Montegrimano Terme, involves hundreds of administrators, artists and creatives. Urbino's councillor for tourism Roberto Cioppi (week 9-15 December) stressed that Urbino will join Pesaro 2024 by focusing on the enormous intangible heritage of its landscapes. For the municipality of Fossombrone (week 6-12 May) councillor Maria Silvia Nocelli said the entire community will participate with its annual Triumph of Carnival celebrations.

Benilde Marini culture councillor and deputy mayor of Cagli (week 8-14 April), said the town is focusing attention on its nature, and Torre Martignana, one of the most important Italian centres for sculpture, will highlight its art. The municipality of Mondolfo, once famous for its accordion production, will focus on the history of this popular instrument, and the municipality of Borgo Pace (week 27 May-2 June) will feature its nature trails as well as its links with art and music, without forgetting food.  The Pesaro 2024 project further envisages an impact on the integration of new cultural professions and on its businesses - from design to hospitality, and from bio to gastronomy to music - that exploit creative inventiveness to project the province’s great Renaissance legacy into the future.
