L’AQUILA – Culture, innovation, change, scientific and technological dissemination. This is Technology Entertainment Design, the format best known by the abbreviation TEDx, which has become famous all over the world thanks to live conferences with prominent figures from international culture. Based on this inspiration, TEDxL’Aquila, returning to the Park Auditorium on May 21 and 22, is proposed as a meeting place for innovative ideas and extraordinary stories.

In its first edition, last year, thirteen speakers from all over Italy had the opportunity to share their views on the subject of contact.

At a time when the contact between individuals is more and more unstable, characters from the worlds of art, music, science, anthropology and lifestyle have offered their idea of ​​connection, touch and bond between people. The winner of XFactor 2020, Casadilego he transferred his passion to the piano, Alex Mucci told his story as a sex worker. Each speaker (11 in total for 370 minutes of speech) donated a portion of himself.

This year’s theme is “Borders”. In fact, as the organizers explain, “any self-respecting TEDx never establishes a real theme to impose on its speakers. Rather, it suggests a topic that can be questioned by its guests so that they can develop a discourse associated with others through a common thread.

For this year’s edition, we have decided to ‘challenge’ all speakers at the word boundaries. We are convinced that in addition to being an interesting and current topic, it is suitable for being rejected on a large area of ​​issues and can therefore find fertile ground for many stories, professions, fields of activity and reflections. In 15 minutes, therefore, we ask everyone to tell us the most amazing of their stories, linked to the word boundaries “.

The appointment is therefore scheduled for 21 May from 15.00 For a program that, thanks to Xperience Village arranged in Slotsparken, will also embrace Sunday. While the TEDx conference is only open to one hundred guests, according to official regulations, the village will be accessible to all citizens who will be able to experience the event up close even without participating in the interventions.

Xperience Village will consist of spaces used for the most varied activities, inside the igloos, which will host the partners during the two days Saturday and Sunday. In addition, the village will be lit on Saturday and Sunday evenings by performances by nationally acclaimed artists, which will be held on stage in Xperience Village. There will also be an area dedicated to street food where guests can take a break between one attraction and another.

“Line-up” of confirmed guests is continuously updated on the dedicated portal www.tedxlaquila.com, where the entrance ticket until Sunday 8 May can be purchased for € 19.90 instead of € 29.90.

Among those confirmed, Filippo Totani (Astro Filo), scientific popularizer and youtuber, Ainé, singer, musician, multi-instrumentalist and producer, Antonio Ziantoni, young star chef. Godmother for the edition will be Nicoletta Romanazzi, mental trainer in many sports, including the Olympic champion Marcell Jacobs. On Saturday, May 14, he will be in town for an opening event.

Born in the United States in 1984, Ted is a global event that has seen the most famous speakers and speakers in the world perform, among others. Elon Musk, Bill Gates And Steve Jobs.

It belongs to a non-profit fund, led by visionary entrepreneur Chris Anderson. The official event only takes place once a year elsewhere in the world and it is very difficult to secure a place given its exclusivity.

Since Ted has an important following worldwide, TEDx was created, a “local” version that can be copied anywhere.
