NEW VISIONS, INNOVATION AND INVENTIVENESS WITH THE STARS OF THE FUORIFESTIVAL
A thought-provoking and vibrant schedule to spice up the four-day Festival
In 2023, the second edition of FuoriFestival dell’Economia di Trento will ignite, showcasing a schedule tailored for and devoted to youthful and family audiences; this parallel program to the scientific schedule will invigorate the whole city with unconventional content, possessing strong appeal and the ability to bring people together. FuoriFestival is back for the second year with an innovative and dynamic approach to involve students of all grades, ranging from primary to university, in addition to teenagers and parents alike.
For this latest edition, FuoriFestival's cross-sectional approach is particularly focused on the "Future of the Future”, the overarching theme of the entire festival, enhancing it by providing a different perspective.
The world of new professions, especially those linked to the digital economy and social media, will be given a special focus at this year’s events, where field experts and entrepreneurs will share their experiences and offer insights on how to navigate through the rapidly-changing landscape, managing both risks and opportunities.
With attorney Marisa Marrafino, Riccardo Pirrone, Publicist and CEO of Kirweb, and Massimiliano Allievi, a social media-active accountant, we will discuss the correlation between social media and occupation; additionally, the experiences of young entrepreneurs and creators, such as Marco Cioni and Matteo Bruno of Slim Dogs and Norma Cerletti, English teacher and founder of Norma's Teaching srl, will be a source of inspiration for those strategizing their professional trajectory; we will investigate how data journalism is seeking novel ways to interact with younger generations, with Gianluca Daluiso, Francesco Brocca, and Giulia Scuffietti of Cose Non Cose; the new visionaries will share their stories of how they turned their curious inventiveness into successful businesses; Manuelito "Hell Raton" (discographer, talent scout and creative director) and Sypher (pro player and creator), from the famed Machete Gaming crew, a venture launched in 2019 that combines music and gaming in an exceptional blend, will converse with us about the world and business of gamers
A must-see is the financial education segment featuring the creators of Young finance, a Sole 24 Ore digital-first video project showcasing talented individuals with a significant following and engagement on YouTube, who will address current and future economic challenges. The creative workshops for children, called ECONOMY KIDS - LA RADIO DEI RAGAZZI, organized by 24 ORE Cultura and Radio 24, will see primary school students engaged in editorial work, allowing them to understand the dynamics of the radio context and giving them the opportunity to share their own viewpoints on the themes of the Festival. A final event on May 28, hosted by Federico Taddia, will celebrate youth and families on the stage in Piazza Cesare Battisti.
The plazas will also host fun and communal activities, including MONOPOLY DEL FESTIVAL DELL’ECONOMIA / LIFE SIZE, a life-sized board where families and children as young as 8 years old can play the world's most famous negotiation game and learn to manage their finances through play by purchasing and trading real estate. The game will take place throughout the 4-day duration of the Festival, invigorating Piazza Fiera and providing an enjoyable, interactive challenge.

HTSI will also conduct special one-on-one interviews with show-biz personalities: on Saturday, May 27, Luca Zingaretti will share his experiences as a creative producer across multiple entertainment mediums including film, theatre, cartoons, and TV series. On Sunday, May 28, Miriam Leone will discuss her professional engagement and cross-media experience, spanning from TV and cinema to social media.
For this edition, the motto remains creating the future, envisioning a future where multicultural models are emerging, and where the rapid shifts underway are highlighting the importance of cooperation and the creation of new perspectives as a successful approach to change. The FuoriFestival will thus emphasize the exploration of novel business concepts spanning from local to global scopes, while embracing the values of solidarity and striving to actualize the objective of promoting peace-building. To accomplish this, it will host a range of events, including the session with Rossella Miccio, President of Emergency, as well as panels focused on second-generation Italians to discuss topics such as diversity, inclusion, and the future. Within this context, a glimpse into the future of Europe cannot be disregarded, as young attendees of the Festival engage in direct dialogue with representatives from EU institutions through Policy Dialogues organized by the European Commission in Italy.
