2016 Francia in scena, French season in Italy

With music, dance, theater, contemporary circus, performances, photography, design, architecture, contemporary art, street art, shows for the youth, Francia in scena offers a rich program that will run until November 2016 from North to South Italy.
This includes over 80 shows, exhibits and events, ten concerts at French and Italian music academies, and four major encounters with art exhibits (contemporary art, photography, street art and contemporary architecture at the French Pavilion of the Venice Biennale). In total, this means 150 dates, for the most part premières in Italy, proposed in 30 cities. This offers a real opportunity for the Italian public to get to know the extraordinary array of French contemporary creation, with special attention paid to multidisciplinary languages, contamination between genres, hybrid esthetics and multimedia works that renew creativity through the use of new technologies, especially projects establishing permanent relations between electronic music and video. All of this falls under the banner of support for young artists and budding talent of the French scene.
La Francia in scena, an artistic season of the Institut français of Italy, has been made possible thanks to the initiative of the French Embassy in Italy, with the support of the French Ministry of Culture and Communication, Nuovi Mecenati Foundation, Sacem Copie privée, European Commission (Europe Creative) and Italian Ministry of Instruction, University of Research – Afam.
