    (ANSAmed) - NAPLES, JANUARY 30 - Collaboration between the Philosophy Festival (Festival della Filosofia) in Magna Grecia and Attica region will become permanent, after several agreements were signed with the Greek regional government to strengthen cultural and tourism development.

    Several activities will be held in Greece as part of the festival created in Italy's southern Campania region. The festival focuses on youth.

    Attica governor Rena Dourou has met in Arthens with representatives of the festival under chairperson Giuseppina Russo.

    The regional government underscored that the festival could become a permanent fixture for bringing students from across Europe to Greece ahead of a campaign centering on culture, classical philosophy and ancient tragedies. Dourou noted that ''this is the third year that we are hosing the Philosophy Festival, which will be held March 20-26, 2017, with the participation of 700 Italian students and teachers. It is the only festival in the sector that focuses on adolescents.'' Russo noted a ''connection with Greece due to that new humanism that Europe is highly in need of. This is why we have for years been focusing on young people, making them experience philosophy by valorizing the 'genius loci' through philosophical-theatrical walks, workshops, dialogues with important philosophers and competitions involving students from across all Italy.''
