From 1 to 4 September, at 9 pm, the Collegno Folk Festival will host “Four folk tales for the Circular Economy”. The initiative, born from the collaboration between the lead partner Sea Marconi and the University of Turin, is part of the research project BioEnPro4TO – Smart Solutions for Smart Communities. The aim of the project is to transform residual materials generated by small and medium-sized communities, such as waste, biomass and sewage sludge, into bioenergy and new bio products.
The purpose of the initiative is to present, in the first instance to the communities of Western Turin involved in BioEnPro4TO, the development directions of the project and the values ??that animate it, through an innovative format accessible to an audience of all ages.
The four evenings will see, at the opening of the Folk Festival concerts in Collegno (Turin), the theatrical reading of four folk tales on the themes of # community, #bioeconomy, #environment and #sustainability and introduced by the Mayor of Collegno Dr. Francesco Casciano.
The choice of popular tales, “folk tales”, as a communication tool goes well with the theme of the Folk Festival and with the suggestions underlying BioEnPro4TO: the relationship between human beings and the environment, the technological magic of solutions for the sustainable production of energy, the fight against climate change, a careful eye on the whole community and in particular on future generations.
