The special edition for the twentieth anniversary of TRANSART – festival of contemporary culture – turns into an itinerant event taking place in Bolzano and in different places in Trentino Alto Adige from September 9 to 24, 2021.

TRANSART is one of the best known and most important multidisciplinary contemporary culture festivals in Italy, known and appreciated all over Europe.

It is a festival focused on the contemporaneity without borders, not only in formats and arts but also in thoughts and in the creativity.
It is open to a heterogeneous public as a show of visual, sounds and sensorial arts, and the events are organized in different Trentino Alto Adige locations.

Thanks to TRANSART people are involved in discovering the most innovative cultural projects that are set up in spaces enhancing their experimental nature: abandoned factories, mountain huts, former barracks, universities, alpine pastures.

Bolzano is the center-base of the festival offering shows from September 12th to 26th, 2020 while, thanks to to the Art Truck project, a truck turned into a mobile stage is crossing South Tyrol from Appiano, land of castles and wines (16/09) to Brunico (18/09), up to Bressanone ( 19/09).

At each stage, a group of artists performances in the main squares of the cities visited, bringing contemporary art in the streets, houses and everyday life.
After each artistic performance, there is a music break.
