The OltrEconomia Festival is the autonomous alternative economics festival that critically reflects on current issues- from precarity, democracy, to technology, and the environment – and takes place in parallel with the mainstream Festival of Economics of Trento. The conference will be mostly in Italian language. For more info, see: https://commonfare.net/en/stories/commonfare-and-the-oltreconomia-festival-team-up
