Volterra is the first Tuscan city of culture


Volterra, the Tuscan town studied by UNCHARTED as part of WP5 experimental and demonstrations together with the cities of Budapest, Porto and Barcelona, ​​has been awarded the title of first Tuscan city of culture 2022.

The participatory cultural project called Volterra XXII intends to unite people, places and activities by relating them to the world and to promote the excellence and specificities of a territory that has made human regeneration the meaning of its social and cultural proposal.

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:

“Una nuova piattaforma digitale per valorizzare, promuovere e mettere in rete un intero territorio che vede la cultura al centro di un importante percorso sul tema della rigenerazione umana”.
“A new digital platform to enhance, promote and put online an entire territory that puts culture at the center of an important path on the theme of human regeneration”.

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.


The platform is in continuous and constant evolution and updating with new events and initiatives; the Volterra22 app will also be available soon.
