“Traces” will be the theme of the ConVivere 2022 festival to be held in Carrara from Sept. 8 to 11.
The scientific advisor for the 2022 edition of ConVivere, the cultural festival promoted by the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Carrara and supported by the Municipality of Carrara, Academy of Fine Arts, Marble Foundation and Chamber of Commerce, will be Professor Maurizio Ferraris.
Maurizio Ferraris, philosopher and full professor of theoretical philosophy at the Faculty of Humanities, University of Turin, presented the theme of this year’s festival: the “Traces.”
“Traces” understood from all points of view, both physical and abstract, but particularly in the sense of “traceability.”
A traceability that allows us to consider all creatures and all human actions in the past, present and future.
Traces have always been a part of our lives and have grown impressively and exponentially,” Ferraris stressed, “The Web is not only a communication apparatus, but also and above all a recording apparatus, and it keeps track of everything: not only the speeches that are made, but what we wear, what inflection of Italian we use, even if they are not particularly interesting things, but why these traces that have accumulated are the treasure of the 21st century and why they are the key to understanding human behavior and learning how to manage it
Festival director Emanuela Mazzi explains the choice of theme as follows:
The topic came up spontaneously during the current edition. In the last festival, the question left unanswered was: how to communicate content in reference to care? Who receives this information, who manages it, who controls it? And how has this changed today thanks to the development of digital tools? Here, with respect to this framework we needed to find the word that identified the theme. So we chose tracks.
