PREMISE

Mente Locale - Visioni sul territorio, organised by CARTA|BIANCA, is the first Italian festival aiming to promote and enhance the narration of territories through audio-visual media.

For the year 2021, given the ongoing health emergency, the festival will have a special edition, with initiatives throughout the year and online activities that will complement those in presence in the festival territories, in Emilia, among the province of Modena and Bologna.
