Kappa FuturFestival 2017
Kappa Futur Festival took place for the first time in 2012 being Turin's and Italy's first outside summer festival. In 2013 the festival was nominated in the the European Summer Festival top 5. In 2015 Kappa Futur Festival introduced the Cashless technology for the first time for an Italian Festival. Talking about an innovative festival!
Hosting the festival for multiple years, bringing dj's like The Martinez Brothers, Carl Cox & Richie Hawtin to name a few, it's easy to say this has to be the most well organized - but also the craziest festival of Italy!

The park holds the memory of the industrial past of this part of Turin, maintaining some of its pre-existing structures such as smokestacks, pools, and steel pillars. It further contains, 450 thousand square metres of green areas which can be used for entertainment, relaxation and sports. It also gives the people of Turin back the river that was exploited for decades by factories, which made it inaccessible and polluted. Indeed, the park is characterized by its industrial past and spatially defined by the river Dora, by main traffic arteries and relatively new residential quarters.
Due to the positive inclusion of its industrial heritage the Parco Dora signifies a new understanding of inner urban landscapes that reflects the transition of society.
