"June Youth is an event designed and wanted to put girls and boys at the center of the political, cultural and civil agenda of the city, in order to enhance the Neapolitan young people as the most important resource for our territory.
The "June Young" review, born seven years ago, together with the challenge of this Administration and Mayor Luigi de Magistris to build an idea of the future and the present starting from the talents, creativity and potential of the younger generations, will involve through music, cinema, art, civil commitment, the districts of Naples and associations, movements, students, entrepreneurs, professionals, craftsmen, artists and stories of young people as positive and resilient models.
This year we are "distant", we still have to be to preserve our health, but in spite of this we will still live "moments" of beauty, art, entertainment and reflection.
Happy June young at all. Instantly together.. "
