Taroudant, Morocco – The Ducci Foundation, in collaboration with the International Centre for Intercultural Dialogue (C.I.D.I.), presents the fourth edition of IncontriFès 2014 in Kassr Annoujoum, Fes, from October 30 through November 1.
Designed to build and reinforce a cultural bridge between Europe and Morocco, the event will host a number of interesting conferences, art exhibitions, cultural activities, and prestigious concerts by groups from Morocco and Italy.
The Foundation President, Paolo Ducci, and deputy Mayor of Fez, Allal Amraoui, will open the event with a presentation about IncontriFès 2014.
Under the theme “Mediterranean crossroads,” Fathallah Oualalou, Mayor of Rabat and former Finance Minister of the Kingdom of Morocco, and Gian Guido Folloni, President of the Italian Institute for Asia and the Mediterranean, will discuss the concept of the cultural crossroads and will explore the historic role of the Mediterranean region as a cultural crossroads between continents.
“The concept of cultural crossroads is a particularly interesting topic especially now that the failure of the Arab Spring has lead Arab countries to a moment of stalemate, while Morocco remains in an open dialogue with Europe,” said Ducci.
The Kassr Annoujoum (Palais des rencontres des Cultures), one of the most refined and elegant riads in Fez, where the international event is being held, will host many international guests with much expertise in different fields.
According to the president of IncontriFès, “International guests, working in the political, cultural and economic fields as well as experts in archeology and anthropology, from France, Germany, Austria, and Australia will attend the event.”
During the event, attendees will have the privilege to see a comprehensive art collection from all over the world, spanning the past to the present, mainly works “donated to the Foundation in the last 5 years by international artists, namely Jannis Kounellis, Arnaldo Pomodoro, Hannu Palosuo, Dario Serra, Ahmed Bennani, Cheikh Zidor and others.”
A concert of contemporary Italian dance directed by choreographers Ricky Bonavita and Theodor Rawyler will give life to the event as it features an outstanding performance that will uplift the audience through a surreal experience.
Moroccan authentic music will also add local charm to the event with performances sure to enchant the audience by the “M’Hamed Bouzoubaa Orchestra,” directed by Amri Fouad, on Friday.
The event is anticipated to be an amazing gathering of local and international guests and expanded artistic activities that will reveal the mysterious fascination of both the Italian and Moroccan cultures.
