Let’s kick off #FuturoPresente, a year of culture for the new generations between #Holland and #Italy!

Theatre, cinema, dance, literature: for the next ten months, the best of Dutch artistic production for children and teenagers will be staged in the most important Italian festivals. Get ready to discover a program full of public presentations that will involve adults and children, professionals and non-professionals, in the name of fun and cooperation between our two countries.

The campaign image, by Dutch illustrator Xaviera Altena, shows how the exchange between cultures is a fertile ground for talent, development and inspiration and that, to maintain balance, each of us needs the other.
We will warm up the engines in March, with the Bologna Children’s Book Fair and the first appointments in Bergamo Brescia 2023 Italian Capital of Culture. Follow us to stay updated!

FuturoPresente is an initiative of the Embassy and Consulate General of the Netherlands in Italy, Fonds Podiumkunsten / Performing Arts Fund NL, Nederlands Letterenfonds, Fonds voor Cultuurparticipatie and SEE NL.
