SEETIES Now we let ourselves be inspired by the birthday gift received from Barcelona, the city where CCT – 10 years ago – began its journey. A map of the world (in cork) on which to mark one’s steps, those already made but especially those still to accomplish. It says “LET’S TRAVEL THE WORLD” and today that’s our birthday seems like the perfect day to start dreaming of and planning new explorations, in search of many other stories to share… The perfect day to restart from here. #SeeCity #OneWorld – Love, CCTeam

PISTOIA A few summers ago, while we were hosting the #CCTravellers in the Italian Capital of Culture 2017, we discovered a place that we fell in love with at the first encounter. Yes, with Castagno di Piteccio it was love at first sight. And among the Creative Curious Travellers, who came to Tuscany from various parts of the World, with whom we repeatedly visited this tiny #BorgoMuseo a few kilometers from the city, there’s even someone who told us: “it is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen”.

PALERMO Here are the 60 guests selected through the “CALL for Creative Curious Travellers 2018” that has received 412 submissions from all around the World! The #CCTravellers2018 will spend some days in Palermo – Italian Capital of Culture 2018 – from 14th June to 24th July, to explore the city and find their story… to tell and share on our web guidezine! * photo by Simona Lo Nero | travel blogger from Palermo at []

PRATO Ci piace tantissimo questa frase di Jane Jacobs: “Old ideas can sometimes use new buildings. New ideas must use old buildings.” – tradotta in Italiano: “Le vecchie idee possono talvolta utilizzare nuovi edifici. Le nuove idee devono utilizzare vecchi edifici.” – e ci è tornata in mente lo scorso weekend, a Prato, dove abbiamo scoperto che esiste un gruppo di attiviste (ci piace chiamarle così e ci piace pure che siano quattro giovani donne) che utilizza le vecchie fabbriche della città, in particolare quelle in stato di abbandono, per coinvolgere la comunità in un dialogo e confronto tra storia e presente, attraverso linguaggi contemporanei e universali (come l’arte) che possono attrarre un pubblico anche da lontano, e immaginare per questi luoghi, oggi in disuso, una nuova vita, un futuro. #CCTravellers for TAI 2017
