The following organizations also took part in its organization: the Ministry of Culture of Russia, the Russian-Italian Center for Economics and Development "CHEZVIR", the Administration of the Apulia region and the Mayor's Office of Bari (with the assistance of the IRTP Moscow Representative Office - the Italian-Russian Chamber of Commerce).

Creative teams from Ingushetia in Italy

In the 2018 year, with the support of the head of the Republic of Ingushetia - Yunus-Bek Yevkurov, and thanks to the interaction with the group of strategic vision "Russia - Islamic World", it became possible for artists from the Republic of Ingushetia to participate in this Festival.

Within one week, at the invitation of the organizers of the Festival, within the framework of the open program of the international cultural project “Russian Seasons”, creative teams from Ingushetia will demonstrate their rich cultural program.

Participation in this event for Ingushetia plays a big role and is very significant, since the population of the republic is small and popularizing the Ingush ethnic culture, the formation of a positive image of the republic in foreign countries is one of the important tasks of the cultural sphere of the region.
