Festival of Complexity 2021:
“Between certainties and uncertainties”

Festival disseminated online on complexity and systemic approach

The Complexity Festival is the national event, completely self-financed, dedicated to deepening, debating and disseminating the issues of complexity and the systemic approach

The new edition of the Complexity Festival is now at the starting blocks. From mid-May to mid-June 40 events are scheduled to discuss the theme chosen for the 2021 edition: “Between certainties and uncertainties”. After 2020, the watershed year between a before and after pandemic, 2021 is the year of awareness, not only to ask ourselves what to do, but also to “map new territories” with the support of the complex paradigm.

How to interpret the dynamics we have and are going through in all fields of human life? What compasses do we have? How to move in that gray area between certainties and uncertainties, inspired by the principles of complexity to build new paths and ask new questions?

The events of the Festival will be an opportunity to debate, starting from the logic of complexity and the systemic approach.


From 14 May to 11 June 2021, in two time slots: from 18 to 19:30; from 9pm to 10.30pm.


The events will all be held online; each promoter will make its web meeting platform available, providing access information in time.


Within the 2021 theme “Between certainties and uncertainties”, the themes explored will be many, such as neuroscience, psychology, law, health, anthropology, online disinformation, algorithms, polarization, environment, counseling, social sciences, uses of technology, geopolitics , learning, leadership, literature, artificial intelligence.


The promoters are numerous also this year: In addition to the Complexity Institute, there will be Sipre Parma, Dedalo ’97, Complexity Education Project, Pordenone Design Week, Circle of women – Misterbianco, UDI – Catania, CHANGE Institute, SOLE Committee (Health, Opportunities, Jobs, Ecology), Complexity Circle Padua, The Talking Hands Parma, Giada Li Calzi, Speira Association, Chiara Veneri, Sum Project, Rebecca Silvia Rossi and SIPRe.
