4 Presentation The characters of the popular traditions, based on the disguises, have origins in ancient festivals very different among them. In these artistic manifestations there is a large opening to human sentiments and thoughts; these are expressions of meetings where converge all peoples with their social, ethnic, economic, political and religious differences. In these traditional celebrations the daily life is built by the imagination, by the game and all this allows a continuous enrichment and exchange of cultural knowledge. These urban festivals allow to build art forms often unique. Among these artistic events we identify the Carnival, a city festival, that in the West it has origin in ancient ceremonies of the Greek and Roman period. These customs are survivals of ancient purification rituals. However today the Carnival has become a symbol of meetings that take place in public spaces of the city where you could meet people with different cultural backgrounds. All this allows you to enjoy and to share, in the large festival with interesting diversities, the traditional and artistic expressions of the different cultures. The 1st International Symposium Life Beyond Tourism, Dialogue among cultures. Carnivals in the worlds, is going to take place in Florence and Viareggio (Italy) in February 3-7, The Symposium offers a reflection on the international Value of Intangible Heritage as defined by UNESCO, or rather practices, representations, knowledge and techniques that must facilitate a strong sense of cultural identity (UNESCO, Declaration of 2003) among the communities, groups and individuals. This Cultural Heritage is showed in different sectors of human activity: art, economics, sociology, anthropology, architecture, engineering, etc.. So the Carnival plays an important role in the cultural world because it proposes to protect an important traditional heritage and to strengthen the cultural and social integration between East and West. Another very important aspect is the education to the popular culture, a fundamental educational process for the new generations to promote knowledge of the history and the value of their local heritage.
