Since its first edition in 2015 the Festival has registered great success, thanks both to its peculiar form and to the high calibre of the guests. La Filosofia, il Castello e la Torre is the first international philosophical event in the Neapolitan area that is open to the public and completely free. During the first year the event had more than 3,500 visitors (between students, speakers, locals and tourists); the second edition had more than 4,500 visitors; the following editions registered more than 5,300 visitors. In the last years the event has gathered more than 900 experts from all over the world (including Canada, USA, Portugal, Spain, England, France, Germany, Georgia, Iran, Turkey, Russia and China) to share their research in a high-profile research context and to visit one of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean Sea.
Massimo Cacciari, Umberto Galimberti, Piergiorgio Odifredd and many other famous intellectuals coming from all disciplines joined our festival.
