Starting from April, for 9 months, over 300 events will take place, including exhibitions, shows, cultural initiatives.

In order to promote Volterra XXII and all scheduled events, the digital platform https://volterra22.it has been specially created which intends to be:

On the platform, the various initiatives are organized into 5 main thematic sections:

Volterra tells: initiatives to regenerate one’s roots
Volterra curates: cultural projects to regenerate the community
Volterra includes: cultural activities to regenerate intergenerational relations
Volterra innovates: cultural projects to regenerate work
Volterritorio: to regenerate cultural projects

Users have the possibility to search by time periods and by themes, even by crossing them, and for each event a description, timetables, geolocation, link to the site or social page are provided.

Thanks to this tool, created by Softhrod, the technical sponsor who conceived and developed the system, it will be possible to consult all the cultural initiatives of Volterra XXII and to know in real time which events are present in the city, in the territory and in the municipalities that support the project.
