The Tornielli Palaces hosts many different types of gatherings, each designed to examine issues related to art and contemporary culture.
The first of these is the Futura (Future) meeting, which has existed since 2009 under the Asilo Bianco Cultural Association. Futura promotes comparisons, dialogue, and exchange of studies and ideas related to the major issues of the future: art, anthropology, technological innovation, and medicine.
Contemporary thought-leaders from various different fields meet to discuss the issues of the future and to share experiences and predictions in an open public forum aimed at reflection.
During the study days, participants hear and participate in discussion about current events, woven together with the social sciences and some artistic disciplines; these events gather together the most innovative presences in the humanities and the sciences.
