Conversations in San Francesco are back in Lucca from 14 October to 20 November, thanks to the Cassa di Risparmio di Lucca Foundation. A series of events focused on the theme Futura. Congetture per il prossimo millennio (Futura. Conjectures for the next millennium).

The 7th edition of the "conversations" includes the participation of personalities with various cultural backgrounds, who address the issue with different languages ​​and outlooks. Futura, in the Latin meaning of 'future things', is a stimulus to look to tomorrow with tools available today and is a tribute to the famous song by Lucio Dalla, who had imagined the love story between two Berliners, divided between East and West, who thought of a hypothetical child, who would have a life without barriers, and if she were a girl she would be called Futura.
