B#Side War Vol.II The second edition of the artistic and cultural Festival B#SIDE WAR permeates twelve territories of Friuli Venezia Giulia, Veneto and Istria, with a strong international feature: indeed, it involves contributors coming from 39 different countries. Its main scope is to promote a common and transversal investigation on our shared war past and to examine those links existing between the Great War and the way in which we nowadays perceive the world. Several interpretations will emerge and they will be tied to those historical facts that still question the human experience of the Great War, yet to be completely explored. That conflict was so powerful in its tragedy that it has transmitted itself even after the death of the single human beings and has shaped the cultural identity from generation to generation.
