Kicks off tonight ad Arsiero with a meeting with the philosopher, evolutionist and popularizer Telmo Pievani “Common paths – the mountain festival ”, a cultural event that focuses on the mountain and valley territory, to enhance it and to imagine its future. The 2022 edition, the third of the festival, will take place in the towns of the Astico valley from 1 to 18 September.
Pievani holds the first Italian chair of Philosophy of Biological Sciences at the Department of Biology of the University of Padua and in Arsiero he will give life to a reflection on the impact of man on the environment and vice versa, from an evolutionary-natural point of view.
The festival is organized by the “Incontrarse” Association, which focuses on the territory of the mountains and valleys with its criticalities and possibilities, “trying to encourage paths of reflection that are as transversal and interdisciplinary as possible – explains Tiziana Occhino – and above all shared with those who live and live in the territory itself, always in the name of respect and active enhancement of the environment “.
This year’s edition of the festival was conceived by a group of young people from Alto Vicentino in collaboration with the “Incontrarse” association and the Cai of the Arsiero subsection and proposes as a theme “Habitare”, a revival of the Latin lemma , which wants to indicate not only an action of the subject on the place but also an inverse dynamic, of passivity of the subject immersed in a place.
The organizers want to make the participants more aware of this double dynamic, “with a view to active but balanced living, thought, which leads to a full enhancement of the territory”.
Within the event there will be conferences, shows, readings, film screenings, debates and a walk, designed to give a shared space for reflection, discussion and deepening of the theme.
