Academic conventions, international conferences and cultural events make Villa Vigoni a place for coming together and discussion, a place for promoting projects and learning more about scientific, political, economic and artistic matters.
Villa Vigoni brings expertise and tools together. Every activity developed here unfolds within an ideal setting for both institutional meetings and informal debates, establishing favourable conditions for coming up with and sharing ideas.
Focus of the Year 2020/2021
What keeps Europe together: the European knowledge
Promoted by the German-Italian economic association MERCURIO, the initiative “Wissen teilen | Per una scienza partecipata” was born out of a desire to examine current issues in depth, but also to investigate from a German-Italian perspective how scientific knowledge is formed, exploited and disseminated.
The University of Excellence of Hamburg, the Europa-Kolleg Hamburg, the Institute for Peace Research and Security Policy, and the German-Italian Centre for the European Dialogue Villa Vigoni together are promoting a new project: the Hamburg-Vigoni Forum.
The Goethe-Universität of Frankfurt am Main, the Villa Vigoni, the Italian General Consulate in Frankfurt and the State Chancellery of Hessen conceived a new format: the Goethe-Vigoni Discorsi. Thanks to the partnership with the newspapers “Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung” and “La Repubblica”, they aim at contributing to the European discourse, from the special Italian-German perspective.
