CPL CONCORDIA is the official sponsor of the Memoria Festival 2018, the event that invites its audience to embark on a journey to discover the value of the past.

The event will take place from 7 to 10 June, across various locations including Mirandola, a city chosen as a symbol of recovery and rebirth, with strong roots in the past but a strong focus on the future; at the same time, some stages of the Festival will be held in other neighbouring areas.


The event will feature numerous illustrious figures from the Italian cultural, intellectual and entertainment scenes, and participants will be able to pause everyday life and immerse themselves in a world suspended in time.



Four events, one theme

There are four events of which CPL CONCORDIA is the main sponsor, passing through distinct worlds such as sport, literature, music and more, all looking at one key theme: the importance of memory and our roots.
