On one side is Nova Gorica, built from scratch after World War II, once the dividing border between Italy and Slovenia was drawn. On the other is Gorizia, a cultural, administrative, and economic centre with an ancient history. GO! Borderless has a mission: to give voice to the combined heritage of a modernist city and a thousand-year-old city. To transcend their boundaries on a journey of reconciliation.
The first step was to develop an innovative cross-border strategy, a strong sense of cohesion, and a joint communication effort. Between two countries, two cities, and many people. GO! 2025 overcomes the physical and cultural barriers between our societies to prove that cross-border governance has a positive impact on the growth of European suburbs, which are essential pieces of the EU mosaic.
The result is the cultural and artistic programme of GO! 2025, whose unique projects go beyond borders and transcend the ordinary.
