A short cultural policy profile for the San Marino is now available on the Compendium. A special thanks go to our new San Marino expert Gloria Valentini.
Below you can see a few highlights of the cultural policy developments in San Marino:
- During winter 2021, a creative and cultural competition was organized to raise special attention to the phenomenon of violence against women and gender equality.
- Public cultural expenditures decreased by around 40% from 2016 to 2020 as a consequence of the effects of the global crisis, which of course has had increasing repercussions on the State budget, thus requiring cuts in public expenditure.
- More recently, and following the start of negotiations for the conclusion of an Association Agreement, San Marino has gradually deepened the European context. This scenario includes the entry of the Republic into the European Higher Education Area and the Bologna Process.
- In recent years, and especially as a result of the emergence of ecological and environmental protection issues, it has become apparent that the landscape and natural space surrounding the Republic must also be safeguarded and promoted as cultural areas.
