A wide path that accompanies them, also through the comparison with the heritage of the past, towards the awareness of the heritage that are building today and that will be tomorrow: from painting to street art, from photographic exhibitions to digital image galleries, from literature to posts and tweets on social media, from architecture to videogame or video art 3D modeling, from sculpture to digital fabrication to eco-sustainable technologies. Educational institutions of every level, single or on the network, constituted or constituting, are admitted to participate.
