We are all made of many parts, other halves. Not just me.

The 3rd edition of ORLANDO Identities | Relationships | Opportunities, an interdisciplinary cultural festival centred on relationships, gender identities and sexual orientations, will be held in Bergamo (Italy) from the 13th to the 17th of May 2016.
This project is organized by Laboratorio 80 with the sponsorship and support of the Municipality of Bergamo and the collaboration of a growing net of relationships between cultural institutions and associations. We believe that the freedom of expressing one's affections doesn't belong to just a minority group, hence the only form of lasting and effective resistance is to cultivate critical thinking.
A “queer” festival isn't exclusively about and for the LGBTI community: it's above all a precious occasion for everybody to observe the transformations in society and in human identities from an eccentric point of view.
