It is a key that allows us to understand the past, interpret the present and plan the future, to feel the history as ours and make us protagonists of its changes ". “Culture - he added - pushes us towards innovation, in making us aware of the path we have traveled, it gives us the courage to go forward together as a community. The slogan of the ceremony “beating time” also means this”.
