The Blooming Festival is returning for the seventh consecutive year to Pergola, one of Italy’s most beautiful villages. This event is dedicated to the promotion of artistic expressions in the field of digital culture, music and electronic arts. During 8 and 9 September 2023, Pergola will host international artists and creative studios who will present installations, video projections and performances in unique locations in the historic centre of the town, such as churches, gardens and cellars.
The Blooming Festival aims to enhance the city’s historical and architectural heritage through sensory experiments, immersive environments and immersive performances. This event stands out in the Italian panorama of digital arts events thanks to its evocative locations and spectacular content. Important international artists will be present, such as Gabey Tjon a Tham (NL), Entangled Others (PT), Diego Labonia (IT), Vitamin (ES), Leandro Summo (IT), Blivet (IT), Decomposer + Liz (IT); the creative artists Bad Clipping Studio (IT) and a special project by PlayMarche. In addition, there will be other opportunities for interactivity and immersiveness, with spectacular videos, installations, projections and live performances.
The aim of the 2023 edition of Blooming is to disseminate and make known these artistic languages to the widest possible audience, while at the same time offering unique and stimulating opportunities for artists to exchange ideas. This festival represents a contemporary and innovative proposal, oriented towards the present but projected into the future.
During the festival, the winning project of the international call #bloomingyou will be presented, which this year focuses on environmental and social sustainability, inclusion and accessibility issues and the use of sustainable/inclusive techniques and technologies in the realisation of projects.
