Archivissima is the first and only festival to celebrate archives. First held in 2018, the festival has grown around the success of Archives Night, a format created by Promemoria Group two years earlier that opened the doors to major archives in Turin for a night, to unlock their secrets through the voices of high-profile writers, journalists, and artists.
The aim of the festival is to draw new audiences into the world of archives, engaging them each year in the exploration of a new and different theme. Encounters, talks, shows, concerts, screenings, performances, direct streaming, workshops, an exhibition, and a conference are the compelling ingredients that have secured the stunning success of the festival, a one of its kind on the European stage, also thanks to major partnerships and the support of the Italian Ministry of Culture, the Directorate General for Archives, and ANAI, the Italian National Archives and Records Association.
The beating heart of Archivissima nevertheless remains Archives Night, which in 2020 became a nationwide event featuring around 400 public and private archives from all of Italy’s regions. For one night, archives throughout the country tell their stories through live and streamed events, and through podcasts and specially produced videos.
The materials produced by the participating archives and recordings of festival events remain accessible even after the curtains close in Archivissima’s huge digital archive, adding another piece every year to the extraordinary picture the festival provides of Italy’s cultural heritage and of the ability of its custodians to convey its richness in innovative ways.
The festival is organized by the cultural association Archivissima, with the support of Promemoria Group.
