Francesco Costa: imagining California

Francesco Costa - Journalist and author of "California"
Dialogue with Michele Bellone - Scientific Coordinator of the Festival

From the myth of the frontier to the techno-optimism of Silicon Valley, from Hollywood cinema to reformist and environmentalist policies, California has always been a source of powerful and established imagery that has long made it a model to look up to. Today, however, the California imaginary is in crisis on several fronts: inequality, education, environment and others. Francesco Costa, a journalist expert on the United States, recounts this evolution and its implications in a dialogue with Michele Bellone.
