International Journalism Festival

International Journalism Festival - 13th edition

The usual appointment with the information promoted by the International Journalism Festival is returning to Perugia again this year. The thirteenth edition is going to open on 3rd April, for five days full of activities, until 7th April.

The program of the festival includes hundreds of events and many guests: meetings and debates that will fill the days of the event, which has become the most important Media Event in Europe.

The event, born in 2006 from the will of its founders, Arianna Ciccone and Christopher Potter, to talk about journalism, information and freedom of the press beyond the traditional methods, has its greatest strength in the novelty of the model constituting its basis. Inspired by the ideas and proposals of all participants, whether they are professionals, readers or students, it shapes the flow of reflections generated by this exchange: a formula that makes this voluntary meeting of opinions and international cultures as lively as possible.

The Festival occupies the spaces of the Perugia historic centre, theatres, auditoriums and conference rooms, but also the streets of the city, which during the five days of the event will experience and breathe the same spirit and cultural drive that move the event and motivate to participate.

The public and the speakers coming from all over the world are going to deal with issues related to both journalism and current affairs.
