Cloisters Festival, june 25-26, 2016 Historical Centre, Altamura.

The cloisters have been for centuries places for living together, socializing, showing solidarity and also places that provided defense and even today they represent spaces for sharing the everyday life. The initiative “Festival of the cloisters”, for the city of Altamura, takes on an experimental character and has the aim to promote the spread of voluntary and participatory action, calling for the commitment on the part of all citizens for the regeneration of the old town center, both for the growth of civic sense and for the ability to induce the Altamura community to education and to the preservation of the cultural heritage. The project consists in the conjunction between history, origins and architectural analysis of the cloisters with the participation of researchers-experts on good urban practices and the proposal of theater plays, music, dance, literature and workshop activities.
