Gorizia, 26. 5. 2023

The èStoria festival, which opens up to topics of great relevance with a multidisciplinary approach, became recognized as a popular event of excellence for the 19th year. During the days of the Festival there are meetings, which bring together the most authoritative voices animating international research and cultural-historical debate, book presentations, shows, exhibitions, projections and accounts of testimonies. The festival brings history as a motif for dialogue and Gorizia as a meeting place to the centre stage, never renouncing sensitive attention to the specificities of the area. This year the central topic was laid to the history of women.
