The mayor of Pompeii spoke about the event, Carmine Lo Sapiowhich states: “It is crucial that the younger generations communicate with each other to build the future of our country. To do this they need aggregate events, and it is the duty of administrators to create these moments. The last two years, especially for young people, have been dark times, which have often made us static, creating in us a sense of helplessness towards the future. The pandemic, however, has emphasized the importance of sociality for all. We can no longer allow the needs of young people to be neglected in conditions such as those experienced recently. That is why the ‘youth voice’ is one of the priorities on my administrative agenda. With the ‘Pompeii Youth Festival’ we wanted to imagine Pompeii as a great stage for the girls and boys of the area, to show off their talent, stimulate their imagination and their creative vein. Knowing that there is such a high desire for participation by young people is an even stronger incentive for the administration to provide the new generations with more and more tools and places to express themselves, compare their ideas and highlight their ideas. talents and skills. In addition to acts of aggregation of shows, there will be serious and current issues, addressed by experts, which unfortunately harm the peace of mind of our children. My Municipal Administration has always supported young people, families and educational institutions, against the unacceptable phenomenon of school bullying. An assumption of responsibility and commitment, translated into concrete gestures also through the ‘Pompeii Youth Festival’, aimed at counteracting a phenomenon that produces deep suffering, inside and outside the school.“.

The Councilor for Productive Activities and Youth Policies echoes this, Michele Troianiello which adds: “Young people represent our present and it is thanks to them that we can build our own, but above all, their future. Listen to young people, understand their needs and provide them with the tools to express their qualities through ambitions and a desire to improve society. We need to make them fall in love with their city by providing answers, opportunities and participation. Only by investing in initiatives like this can important goals be achieved. One of the first steps I took, as a youth policy councilor, was to urgently organize a ‘working table’ involving young people, associations and other urban realities where young people are involved at the forefront. With the ‘Pompeii Youth Festival’ we have created an opportunity in the music, sports, culture and social sectors – giving ample space to serious issues such as bullying and cyberbullying – areas in which young people must to be protagonists again. The municipal administration, therefore, is committed to young people and invests in their leadership. Young people represent a fundamental resource for the growth and cultural and social evolution of our community, which is why my commitment as a councilor aims to promote the creation of employment and expressive opportunities for the new generations.“.

All events were organized in collaboration with Show Management.
