Transcultura : over 20 years experience
On the European side, the scientific direction of the forum was entrusted to the Transcultura International Institute, founded in 1988 by Umberto Eco and Alain le Pichon.
For the last 20 years the Institute has developed – along with its Chinese, Asian, African or Indian partners –an approach to reciprocal understanding and the methodologies that such understanding provokes. This involves considering the reality of the cultural strengths and resources available and suggesting scenarios of cultural and artistic exchange based on this principle of reciprocity.
