More specifically, the 48th International Theatre Festival directed by Antonio Latella will take place from September 14th to 24th, instead of June 29th to July 13th as previously announced. The 14th International Festival of Contemporary Dance directed by Marie Chouinard will take place from October 13th to 25th, instead of June 5th to 14th. The original dates are confirmed for the 64th International Festival of Contemporary Musicdirected by Ivan Fedele, which will take place from September 25th to October 4th.

· From August 29th to November 29th, the 17th International Architecture Exhibitiondirected by Hashim Sarkis
