Cultural exchange and education

FuturoPresente 2024

Launching FuturoPresente, a year of culture for new generations between the Netherlands and Italy!

Theater, cinema, dance, literature: for the next ten months, the best of Dutch artistic production for children and adolescents will be staged at the most important Italian festivals. Get ready to discover a program full of public presentations that will involve adults and children, professionals and non-professionals, in the name of fun and cooperation between our two countries.

The campaign image, by Dutch illustrator Xaviera Altena, shows how exchange between cultures is fertile ground for talent, development and inspiration, and that in order to maintain balance, each of us needs the other.

We will warm up our engines in March, with the Children's Book Fair in Bologna and the first events in Bergamo and Brescia, Italian Capital of Culture 2023. Follow us to stay updated!

FuturoPresente is an initiative of the Embassy and Consulate General of the Netherlands in Italy, Dutch Performing Arts Fund, Dutch Foundation for Literature, Dutch Cultural Participation Fund and SeeNL.
