Can the expression of cultural diversity help to redefine living together at the dawn of the twenty-first century or, on the contrary, is it the mask for legitimizing the inequalities it generates? Is its final scope the end of civilization or is it the fulfillment of this universal republic carried by the humanists of the Italian Renaissance?

The conference will be followed by a rich, completely free tasting of different wines from renowned wineries in the Calabria region. The tasting will also be an opportunity to briefly present the history of the production of the wines and test their organoleptic virtues and in particular the olfactory-gustatory moods. In short, an evening of tastings at the Institute that, as in an Italian piazza, will offer culture and the chance to meet friends and speak in the most beautiful language in the world: Italian!

Fulvio Caccia is the co-founder of the Observatory of Cultural Diversity. He was one of its principal animators as well as its director (2007-2018).

Previously, he participated in the creation of the transcultural magazine ViceVersa (1984-1996), the Forum of Foreign Cultural Institutes in Paris (FICEP) whose manifesto he wrote, and, more recently, Linguafranca, a transnational literary agency. He runs the literary and television magazine "République métisse (Vià93)" and the blog www.fulvio-caccia.com. Fulvio Caccia has published five novels including Un été catalan (Balzac 2018), a collection of short stories and six books of poetry including Italie et autres voyages, a co-edition Noroît / Bruno Doucey publisher and Aknos, (Guernica editions) crowned by the award of the Governor-General of Canada in 1994. His latest essay, Diversité culturelle: vers l’état-culture (Laborintus, 2018) summarizes his experience and his reflections on this theme.
