In December 2020 Nova Gorica & Gorizia convinced the international jury with our GO! Borderless story and vision and have since been nominated as Slovene European Capital of Culture 2025.
Trg Evrope – La piazza Transalpina square represents an important point between two cultures
Nova Gorica and Gorizia strive and dwell together: dived by wars, but untied by friendship and intense cooperation, the two cities set for themselves the ambitious goal to become a cross-border European Capital of Culture.
Nova Gorica and Gorica convinced the international jury in December 2020 with the second bid-book and the presentation.
In 2025 one Slovenian city will be named European Capital of Culture
The city of Nova Gorica, together with Gorizia, is officially running for the title of European Capital of Culture (ECoC). The GO! 2025 candidature with its slogan GO! BORDERLESS is a tale where past memories and future visions blend to generate a concrete, participated and effective cultural strategy, ultimately contributing to the improvement of the quality of life for the citizens of the whole border area. Nova Gorica and Gorizia strive and dwell together: dived by wars, untied by friendship and intense cooperation, the two cities set for themselves the ambitious goal to become a cross-border European Capital of Culture.
ECoC is a prestigious title awarded each year to two European cities selected through the European Capital of Culture initiative. For an entire year, the European Capitals of Culture design and implement an innovative programme of artistic and cultural events highlighting the richness of Europe’s cultural diversity, its shared history and heritage as well as promoting mutual understanding through the universal language of creativity. Becoming a European Capital of Culture brings benefits that extend far beyond the title year: the cultural, economic, urbanistic and social legacy of this initiative revamp the city’s present and future, as well as those of the communities that inhabit it.
In February we have convinced the jury with the first bidbook and the presentation. Second bidbook was handed in to the Ministry of Culture in November. Ahead of us are two important points – (virtual) jury visit and the second (final) presentation of our candidature. Jury’s decision which Slovene city will be the European Capital of Culture in 2025 will be known on the 18th of December – the finish line is so close we can start counting in days. Regardless of the outcome, the Candidature process itself has already established an open and vibrant dialog crossing administrative and mental borders, becoming an excellent opportunity for the shared future of Nova Gorica and Gorizia, two cities that have always been and will always be home to European culture. But there is no winner before the final minute of the match is over and we are putting all our strengths and energy to bring us to victory.

Cookies are small text files that the sites visited by a customer send to the visitors’ computers, where they may be stored to be sent to the same web site at the customer’s next visit. The so-called ‘third-party cookies’ are usually sent by a web site, other than the one the customer is visiting. Usually, it happens because any site may contain elements (images, maps, sounds, links to sites on other domains, etc.) that are hosted on servers other than the one of the visited site.
Types of cookies
Cookies can be divided into the following groups, depending on their features and their use:
Technical cookies. Technical cookies are the ones used exclusively for “sending electronic communication or when a computer-service provider is expressly asked to render the said services by the user or the customer” (see Article 122, paragraph 1, of the Privacy Code). Cookies are not used for any other purpose and are usually installed directly by the web site. They can further be divided into navigation and session cookies, both ensuring the web site is properly functioning. Cookie analytics may be compared to technical cookies, where a web site is using them for gathering aggregate data on the number of visitors and the ways, in which they use the site. There are functional cookies that allow users to navigate web sites based on a series of criteria with the aim of improving customer experience. No consent is required to be given by the users for these cookies, while the Controller shall inform data subjects as set out in Article 13 of the GDPR, which the Controller may send using means and formats it deems appropriate, if using only that type of devices.
Profiling cookies. The purpose of profiling cookies is to create user profiles and are used to customise adverts to the user’s preferences extrapolated from the user’s browsing history. As the devices used for browsing may considerably intrude on users’ privacy, European and Italian regulations require that users be properly informed about the use of such cookies and give or withdraw their consent. So, Article 122 of the Privacy Code provides that “storing of information on users’ devices or access to stored information may only be allowed, provided users have expressed their consent after being informed in a simple way as laid down in Article 13, paragraph 3 (Article 122, paragraph 1, of the Privacy Code).
Google Analytics. This web site contains components sent by Google Analytics, a web-site traffic analysis tool from Google, Inc. (“Google”).

Duration of cookies
Some cookies, such as session cookies, are only active until the browser is closed or the user logs out. Other cookies persist even after the browser is closed and are available the next time the user visits the same site. These are called permanent cookies and their duration is set by the server when they are created. In some cases, they may only last for a limited time, in others they may last forever.
