From April 6 to May 19, 2024 PARMA 360 Festival returns to its eighth edition!
This year, through the works of some of the most important contemporary artists, we will investigate the future of humanity and the concept of “Homo Deus” taken from Yuval Noah Harari’s essay “Homo Deus. A Brief History of the Future” which is about humanity’s efforts to use its knowledge to gain happiness, immortality, and God-like powers.


The space between
Open laboratory of the San Paolo complex
It features the works of four great contemporary illustrators who have long established their name and their work in national and international contexts and who are in dialogue with each other for the first time. The exhibition displays the most recent works by Emiliano Ponzi, Bianca Bagnarelli, Antonio Pronostico and Manfredi Ciminale.
