"The cities of the future" is a cycle of webinars that aims to bring artists from the international community into dialogue with public administrators, entrepreneurs, economists, directors of cultural institutions, urban planners, scientists, computer scientists and other authoritative protagonists of our time. A series of meetings, to understand what role contemporary art can play in acting as a stimulus and, at the same time, as a tool, to give substance to an idea of the city of the future, socially responsible and attentive and respectful of other forms of life on the planet, sensitive to the different communities that live it and to future generations who will be able to live and enjoy it, open to use all technologies that allow energy savings, to all generations and to the meaning and pleasure of living there.

The series of meetings will start on Saturday 30 January. The artist Loris Cecchini, Francesco Marini Associazione Confindustria Toscana Nord, Eliano Lodesani Director of Banca Fideuram spa, Lorenzo Bini Smaghi President of the Foundation for Contemporary Arts in Tuscany, Mario Cristiani President of the Associazione Arte Continua will speak on the theme "Industrial District"; to moderate the meeting Benedetta Squittieri Councilor for Economic Development of the Municipality of Prato.
The subsequent webinars will be held every last Saturday of the month, among the speakers some of the most important figures of the contemporary art scene, Maria Thereza Alves, David Tremlett, Tobias Rehberger, Daniel Buren and Cai Guo-Qiang. The series of meetings will end in July with Antony Gormley, hopefully in attendance.
