Pavillions of Creativity: Literature


The most important event organized periodically by the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, which identified culture and creativity as strategic factors for sustainable urban development, is the UNESCO Creative Cities Conference, which this year will be held from 10 to 15 June in Fabriano.

The UNESCO Secretariat and about 500 guests between delegates, institutions and personalities from the world of art and culture, will gather to launch a debate at the highest levels on the future of cities in the 21st century.

There will be many cultural events, reflections, seminars and opportunities for meeting and discussion that will transform the Marche city into a large open-air laboratory on creativity: all this thanks to the design of the 8 creative pavilions that will rise in the heart of the historical center of the city, and that will be set up in such a way for give the opportunities to increase participation, relations and meetings between delegates, economic operators and stakeholders.


Literature Pavilion: hosted in the Multimedia Library “Romualdo Sassi”, an ancient city monastery. The design idea, by the architect Emanuele Marcotullio from Jesi, is based on the concept of map not as a geographical detector, but as a window on the culture and history of civilization expressed through a Literary Tour. The public will be accompanied within a path of “sheets” suspended up to the goal, represented by an installation of cylindrical parts that indicates the growth of the Network and the contributions of the Creative Cities.

In addition to the Tour, the city of Milan, leader for Literature, has created a Call to outline the Literary Paths of the participating cities thanks to the use of customized graphics. Specifically, the cities involved were invited to create the literary path that made them famous throughout the world, embarking on an interactive journey through their personal literary history, like a modern Leopold Bloom that retraces his Dublin.
