05/12/2018 - Events

A public meeting to illustrate the way to become a UNESCO creative city: the invitation comes two months after the presentation of Biella’s candidacy for the inscription in the list of “Unesco Creative Cities”, that is the cities in the world that have focused on their history and creative identity for its own future development and network cooperation, in our case textile excellence. The initiative is the mayor Marco Cavicchioli, signatory of the candidacy proposal, and the president of the Cassa di Risparmio di Biella Foundation Franco Ferraris, who supported the project from the beginning. The appointment is for 5 pm on Monday 17 December 2018, in the conference room of the Museum of Territory in via Quintino Sella.

«The consultancy company that has been entrusted with the task», says Valeria Varnero, city planning assessor «has already held some exploratory meetings to get closer to our Biellese; but it is important that the reasons and the modalities of this candidacy are shared and illustrated to a very wide audience. This is why we have planned, in synergy with the Cassa di Risparmio Foundation, a public meeting open to all those who can help us make our candidacy more effective».

The great fervor and attention aroused by the launch of this “challenge”, which took place during the press conference during the journey to the University of Gastronomic Sciences of Pollenzo, are a good omen for the new adventure that sees the territory involved as a whole .

The document to be presented to UNESCO will be physically drawn up by the company Bia Srl (which has already made the candidacy of Alba a winner): during the meeting the candidacy path of the city will be illustrated, ideas and answers to the questions will be collected and curiosity of the participants.
