Bergamo and Brescia as Italian Capital of Culture 2023

Monday 10 April 2023

The nomination of Bergamo and Brescia as Italian Capital of Culture 2023, which took place in July 2020, arose from the Italian Parliament's decision to respond positively to a proposal made by the two cities. A recognition of their history, artistic and cultural heritage and the ability to regenerate, to actively project themselves into a present consisting of construction, work, solidarity and innovation.
For the first time since the title Italian Capital of Culture was established, two cities, united in the determination to ‘Grow Together’, have joined forces to create a single Capital. A unique city that does not limit itself to the simple algebraic sum of its two cultural productions, but promotes an image of a ‘possible and future’ urban space that can unify its extraordinary manufacturing capacity, its traditional work capability and discipline, its entrepreneurial calling, but also networks of solidarity and a cultural heritage of unique relevance with an international scope, exchanging good practices, finding synergies, accelerating processes and sharing knowledge.
