Back to the future! was born from an intergenerational artistic co-creation process, Let’s Keep In Touch, and from an under 30 participatory direction, Catch Up!, to realise an innovative festival in the Quartiere Adriano.
Located in the north-east of Milan, Quartiere Adriano is a peripheral area, with an agricultural and industrial past, today a residential area.
A heterogeneous district, capable of including different cultures, creating different relationships with the city centre and bringing its past into dialogue with new visions for the future.
Magnete is the new Community Point within the Lacittaintorno programme by Fondazione Cariplo in collaboration with the Municipality of Milan.
A place for care and culture, a space for relations and plurality for the Quartiere Adriano and the city. Magnete proposes a hybrid and multifunctional model, combining art, live performances, food, training, social inclusion, innovation and much more, to give back to the territory and the city a place where to experiment the theme “Care as Culture. Culture as Care”.
Catch Up! is a training and co-design process, a participatory artistic direction formed by a group of youngsters under 30 experimenting in the realisation of the BTTF festival. It is a process focused on transferring skills in the interpretation of contemporary languages and in the management of multidisciplinary and cross-media events.
The Catch Up! group is the protagonist of the process of cultural programming, organisation and promotion of the BTTF festival, where it expresses its own point of view on the present.
Let’s Keep in Touch is a journey in which people from different generations and biographies get involved in the co-creation of an immersive performance, a collective story of Quartiere Adriano.
The group shares the ideation, realisation and presentation of the work, involving the local community and defining the most urgent and compelling themes. The artwork is programmed within the BTTF festival schedule.

BTTF Festival was conceived and created by human beings who question themselves, discuss with each other and act in synergy with the community and the environment.
The festival, which is the result of participatory processes, is dedicated to contemporary topics and artistic languages and includes innovative and multidisciplinary artistical and educational proposals dedicated to intercultural and cross-generational audiences.
BTTF Festival aims to bring people closer to artistic experiences as a way to get to know and understand the contemporary, to discover new forms of self and ways to relate with the world so that today’s complexity will not equate to a lack of understanding and fear of tomorrow yet to an opportunity to continuously question oneself and experiment new visions.
