Dinamico Festival was created to bring contemporary circus culture to Italy, and to Reggio Emilia in particular. The festival, born in 2010, has evolved over time, becoming a very popular event in just a few years: organised in the city's parks, it brings artists and companies from all over Europe to Reggio Emilia. It has always had a very precise philosophy that links artistic offerings to a proposal of convivial and aggregation moments, linked to the world of local food and wine, in particular from biodynamic cultivation.
