One of the affirmations that gave birth to the European culture is that there must be, at the origin of all things, not irrationality, but Creative Reason (Logos); not blind chance, but freedom. It is the most revolutionary affirmation and, at the same time, the one most awaited by the human heart. So, the question is whether the world comes from the irrational—reason being nothing but a "by-product", perhaps even harmful, of its development—or if the world comes from reason, therefore being its criterion and purpose.
Diverse speakers will explore this issue: the mountain guide Armand Dussex (Switzerland), the physicist Peter Rosenbusch (Germany), the director Ostap Kostyuk (Ukraine), the philosopher Gianni Repetto (Italy), the director Karin Coonrod (United States), the philosopher Alexandr Filonenko (Ukraine / Russia) and Father Alin Cîndea (Romania).
Each of them, by contemplating the world through his own passion, will allow us to enter a little deeper into the knowledge of the Real, in order to make our judgment on the question.

Conclusion of the festival and celebratory day
Participants are free to organize their days as they please, managing their own accommodation, food and transportation.
They are thus guaranteed the greatest flexibility.
THE TYPICAL DAY
Get-togethers in the mornings are accompanied by a keynote presentation and are followed by other talks and round table discussions.
The talks will be held in French and English, with translations in Spanish and Italian in small groups
The afternoons, on the other hand, are open to sports and culture, thanks to the wide range of activities offered by the National Park of the Matese.
Each evening a concert will be held either in the medieval church of Santa Maria a Castello, located in the ruins of the village’s imposing Norman castle, or in the town hall’s square, found in the middle of the maze of steep alleys which forms the heart of old Letino
