In the Economy Festival Trento, economy scholars, Nobel Prize winners and managers from all over the world meet for discussing economic topics with the audience.
The Economy festival (Festival dell'Economia di Trento) has been brought into being in 2006 in order to enable and facilitate discussions between economists and a broad public. The ultimate ambition of this festival is to put the economic terminology across to everyone. The Festival dell'Economia di Trento takes place every year at the end of May (or beginning of June) in the historic Palazzi of the old town in Trento.
Well-known economists explain and interpret current economy issues, both from a economic-scientific as well as from a social and entrepreneurial viewpoint. In the course of the last years, numerous economy scholars and managers such as Sir Anthony Barnes Atkinson, Fan Gang, Zygmunt Bauman and the Nobel Prize winner Gary Becker took an active part in.
The Economy Festival of Trento is a barrier-free event that enables easy access also to handicapped. Furthermore it is a sustainable event that puts emphasis on energy saving and climate protection.
