From 27 to 29 September, in Florence, the Wired Next Fest returns to Palazzo Vecchio, the most important Italian festival for science, technology, business, internet, research and social innovation. But above all it is a celebration of the desire for change and evolution. The event is free of charge and is sponsored by the Municipality of Florence and organized by Wired Italia, which celebrates its tenth anniversary this year.
Why are we telling you this? Because Pasqua is a big fan of Wired Next Fest. In fact, at the last edition of the festival in Milan our CEO Riccardo Pasqua was a speaker on the guest panel. Also, for the coming festival in Florence, our wines will be offered throughout the event. Pasqua always moves with the times and often is ahead of them, embodying the spirit of the Wired festival in Florence.
The theme of this edition will be PEOPLE. On one hand, our present is enhanced by the contribution of some individuals who, through their history and professional experience, have become a point of reference for the community. On the other hand, our reality is made up of individuals who adapt to the work, cultural and social changes that affect our "liquid" (as the philosopher Zygmunt Bauman said) and fragmented community.
Many guests will animate the Salone dei Cinquecento, the Sala d’Arme and the courtyards of Palazzo Vecchio between meetings, interviews, panels, performances, workshops and experiences. There will also be guests from the world of music: Subsonica, Vinicio Capossela, Willie Peyote, Selton, Shazami, The Zen Circus and others. Admission is free on registration at the website nextfest.wired.it.
We can't wait to see you in Florence! Of course, if you participate, come find us. With a glass of our wine and the many initiatives of the festival, there will certainly be much to enjoy. Have a good time at Wired Next Fest!
