The Festival of the Century is a knowledge festival. With its mixture of knowledge, art, and culture, the festival, one year, turns the spotlight on a particular historical period, and alternates it the following year with a different theme, with the purpose of creating a debate about the lives we live and the society around us.
In 2018 The Festival of Centuries focuses on La belle époque, French for The Beautiful Era. La belle éppoque encircles two wars between 1871 and 1914. In that period Europe is characterized by political stability while enjoyment, technology and art flourish.
