The 1st International Symposium, Dialogue among cultures. Carnivals in the worlds, is going to take place in Florence and Viareggio (Italy) in February 3-7, 2016. The Symposium offers a reflection on the international Value of Intangible Heritage as defined by UNESCO, or rather practices, representations, knowledge and techniques that must facilitate a strong sense of cultural identity (UNESCO, Declaration of 2003) among the communities, groups and individuals. This Cultural Heritage is showed in different sectors of human activity: art, economics, sociology, anthropology, architecture, engineering, etc.. So the Carnival plays an important role in the cultural world because it proposes to protect an important traditional heritage and to strengthen the cultural and social integration between East and West. Another very important aspect is the education to the popular culture, a fundamental educational process for the new generations to promote knowledge of the history and the value of their local heritage. The Symposium was organized with ICOMOS International Committee Intangible Cultural Heritage and Forum UNESCO, with the collaboration of University of Nariño, Pasto (Colombia), Univesity of Bogotá Jorge tadeo Lozano (Colombia) and SIMBDEA Società Italiana per la Museografia e i Beni DemoEtnoAntropologici, Italia.
