Events and Leisure activities


Each year during the third week of September the Philosophy Festival takes place in the cities of Modena, Carpi, and Sassuolo. Held in the cities' historic squares and courtyards, the open-air festival features a wide-ranging creative programme of exhibitions and installations, live shows and concerts, games and workshops, films, and philosophical dinners in which surprising themes are often discussed, starting with a key word connecting the philosophical discussions to crucial experiences in contemporary life.
“Person” will be the theme of the next festival, held from 13 to 15 September 2019.
Admittance to all events on the programme is free.
