ECoC 2025 - European Capital of Culture

GO2025 settembre2019

 

A city from Slovenia and another from Germany (Chemnitz) will be chosen as the 2025 European Capital of Culture. 
The city of Nova Gorica is aiming at the title while presenting its cross-border cooperation with neighbouring Gorizia as one of its advantages. The two cities are going to prepare a joint programme to both promote and strengthen the resources of a unique cross-border area.

The two states chosen have already published a call to the cities that intend to present their candidacies. Once the title has been conferred, the city is expected to prepare a year-round original cultural programme of outstanding quality.
The first bid book, which contains the cultural programme for that year, was submitted by 31 December 2019. The applications was examined by a committee of independent experts: the candidacy of Nova Gorica anche Gorica, Ljubljana, Piran and Ptuj were admitted to the final selection.

The second phase bid book was submitted on 24th November 2020.

18th December 2020 Nova Gorica and Gorizia was announced to be European capital of Culture 2025.

WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT?
 
The title of European Capital of Culture is given every year to two cities of two Member States of the European Union. The initiative's aims include: protecting the richness and variety of different cultures in Europe, promoting the shared cultural values and achievements of the European nations and guaranteeing the effects of culture on the long-term development of cities. In addition, the title is also an excellent opportunity for re-launching their local tourism industry and economy through cultural developments.

  

THE ROLE OF EGTC GO
The EGTC GO European Grouping for Territorial Cooperation will be the tool used throughout the individual phases of this complex process, since it is certainly going to be a greatly appreciated advantage.
EGTC GO can directly carry out shared projects both in Slovenia and in Italy and can invest across the shared territory of the cities without the constraints of national and administrative borders, while coordinating cross-border investments and thus implementing a true joint conurbation.
EGTC GO is therefore going to play a key role for the cities in jointly carrying out the cross-border activities.
A successfully tested method of managing cross-border projects and executing cross-border investments within the CBC Programme 2014-2020 Interreg V-A Italy-Slovenia will be used for this purpose.

THE CANDIDACY
The GO! 2025 candidature with its slogan GO! BORDERLESS is a tale where past memories and future visions blend to generate a concrete, participated and effective cultural strategy, ultimately contributing to the improvement of the quality of life for the citizens of the whole border area. Nova Gorica and Gorizia strive and dwell together: dived by wars, untied by friendship and intense cooperation, the two cities set for themselves the ambitious goal to become a cross-border European Capital of Culture.
