Future Fiction
a cultural association for social promotion


logo future fiction

From January 2018, Future Fiction aims to disseminate wide-ranging themes and a strong social impact related to the spread of technologies, innovations, and emerging phenomena such as artificial intelligence, climate change, longevity, 3D printing, bio and nanotechnologies, renewable resources, Big Data, drones, augmented reality and any other biopolitical transformation that can be hypothesized in a time horizon covering the next 50/100 hundred years.

All these activities also allow us to imagine and outline future scenarios, which can inspire and guide human actions in different areas of society (scientific, technological, economic-financial, and environmental).

We carry out this mission through numerous activities, both public and reserved for members, divided into 3 macro-areas:

  • Meetings and presentations in middle schools, high schools, and universities to educate the new generations on the most important transformations (technological and socio-cultural) that are increasingly impacting our lifestyle. Which jobs will disappear in 10 years? What skills will be required by an ever-changing labor market dominated by new elements that need to be understood and predicted?
  • Translation workshops from many languages (English, Chinese, Russian, Italian) at the University for Foreigners of Siena and the Sant’Anna Institute of Pisa;
  • Workshop on topics related to anticipation and technological innovation: Solarpunk Café, FutureCon;
  • Publications of books, ebooks, audiobooks, and comics of both fiction and fringe non-fiction in translation from 13 languages (Chinese, Russian, French, German, Italian, English, Portuguese, Turkish, Greek, Polish, Norwegian, Catalan and Japanese) and more than 35 different countries.
  • Online meetings and round tables on books, and discussions with authors from many different countries.
