The first city making festival in Italy

For all city lovers

Utopian Hours is the one festival that tells stories about “making cities”: the ideas, projects and places that life improving scenarios in the cities across the world.

For three days the festival gives voice to the protagonists of these changes: city makers, activists, architects and innovators share their experience, stimulating new visions of Turin’s future and a reflection on the concept of the city.

A new vision of the urban future.
With A World of 8 Billion Cities Utopian Hours concludes the contemporary trilogy on the shape and image of the city that started in 2020 with ‘The City at Stake’ and continued in 2021 with ‘The 1000-minute City’.
