Meeting – xl edition


Meeting is the most popular summer festival of meetings, culture, music and entertainment in the world, which since 1980 returns to Rimini every year at the end of August.
Since its debut, it has been proposed as a manifestation with a markedly international character, a crossroads of testimonies and experiences of different cultural origins: a lively and unique event on the world scene, it counts over 600,000 presences.

In more than three decades, the Meeting has addressed crucial issues, in free and open dialogue with the most interesting personalities of culture, politics and faith.
The intense days of August are full of meetings, exhibitions, shows and sporting events, and have seen the participation of important personalities such as His Holiness John Paul II and Mother Teresa of Calcutta, the Dalai Lama, Eugene Ionesco and Luigi Giussani; heads of state and government such as Lech Walesa, Francesco Cossiga, Giulio Andreotti, Helmut Kohl, Abdelaziz Bouteflika, Silvio Berlusconi and Sergio Mattarella, personalities of the economy such as Mario Monti, Tommaso Padoa Schioppa, Cesare Romiti. And again, Nobel laureates such as Abdus Salam and Carlo Rubbia and entrepreneurs like Umberto Agnelli, Francois Michelin and Alessandro Profumo.
