XVI edition of Festival of Economy of Trento 2021, Italy: The Return of the State

XVI EDITION OF THE TRENTO ECONOMICS FESTIVAL
THE RETURN OF THE STATE ​

Dear Artist friends, like every year the Studio d'Arte Andromeda has been invited to join the Festival of Economy that will be held in Trento from 3 to 6 June 2021. 

“The coronavirus pandemic has driven the public sector to enter even more invasively into our lives, regulating every aspect of our daily activities. Let’s be clear about this, it has done so with good reason, and other countries that have seen less invasive action by their governments have bitterly regretted it. 

The fact remains that when we finally come out of the emergency, we will find ourselves with a hypertrophic state that has moved into fields left exclusively to private initiative in the past. 

The end of the pandemic can be an opportunity to redefine the confines of the state and to reinforce its presence where this is most needed, at the same time planning its withdrawal elsewhere. 

What should the public sector do for its citizens, and what on the other hand should merely be regulated and left to private initiative? And what should the response be to private sector players that do not limit themselves to pursuing their own individual or company interests, but that organise themselves into communities, or third sector associations capable of concerning themselves with the common good as well as, if not better, than the public sector? We should also review how the state can carry out these activities in a more efficient manner. 

The pandemic has been a stress test for the public administration. In many cases it has failed, and we must learn from these negative lessons no less than from the positive ones. We can also learn a great deal from the interaction between the public administration and democratic institutions, and between the technostructure and politics. 

Tito Boeri 
Scientific Director of the Festival"

The ancient Olympic Games were a series of competitions held between representatives of various city-states in ancient Greece, which featured mainly athletic events, but also combat and chariot races. The origin of these Olympic Games is shrouded in mystery and legends. One of the most popular myths identifies Hercules and Zeus, his father, as the parents of the Games. According to legend, it was Hercules who first called the Games "Olympic" and established the custom of exploring them every four years. The legend persists that, after Hercules completed his twelve jobs, he built the Olympic stadium as an honor to Zeus. Upon completion, he walked a straight 200 steps and called this distance a stadium (Greek: στάδιον, Latin: stadium, "stage"), which later became a unit of distance. Another myth associates the first Games with the ancient Greek concept of Olympic truce (ἐκεχειρία, ekecheiria). The most accepted date for the start of the ancient Olympic Games is 776 BC, which is based on inscriptions, found in Olympia, of the winners of a foot race held every four years from 776 BC. The Ancient Games highlighted running events, pentathlon (which consists of a jumping, discus and javelin event, a foot race and a fight), boxing, wrestling and equestrian events. Tradition says that Coroebus, a cook from the city of Elis, was the first Olympic champion. 
The Olympics were of fundamental religious importance, with sporting events alongside sacrifice rituals in honor of both Zeus (whose famous statue by Phidias was in his temple in Olympia) and Pelope, the divine hero and mythical king of Olympia. Pélope was famous for his chariot race with King Enomau of Pisatis. The winners of the tests were admired and immortalized in poems and statues. The Games were held every four years, and this period, known as an Olympics, was used by the Greeks as one of their units for measuring time. The Games were part of a cycle known as the Pan-Hellenic Games, which include the Mythic Games, the Nemean Games, and the Isthmic Games. 
The Olympic Games reached their zenith between the 6th and 5th centuries BC, but then gradually lost in importance as the Romans gained power and influence in Greece. According to some authors, the decline in the Olympic spirit does not begin in the Roman period, but in the Hellenistic period. One of the most important causes for understanding this decline is the change in status from citizen / soldier to subject (soldier / professional or athlete / professional). In this way, professionalism took place as an effect of political change and not as the very cause of the changes that occurred from the classical to the Hellenistic period. 
There is no consensus on when the Games officially ended; the most common date is AD 393, when Emperor Theodosius I declared that all pagan practices and cults would be eliminated. Another date is AD 426, when his successor Theodosius II ordered the destruction of all Greek temples. The Olympic Games did not happen again until the end of the 19th century. (source: Wikipedia)

The museum is a specific communication tool for people from different epochs removing the barriers between them, shortening the distances, breaking and eradicating the stereotypes.

The Italian Championship of Lies was born in 1966. The reasons that led to the creation of this competition are to be found in the traditions of our little village over the Pistoia’s mountains, on the Italian Apennines, when in last century people used to meet in front of a fireplace to tell stories that mixed reality and fictious. The Italian Lie Academy, in occasion of the 45th Italian Lies championship, declares the graphics section contest dedicated to Lie.
