This case study explores participant experiences at the Festival of Europe in Florence, with the aim to answer a series of questions that run through the research agenda on cosmopolitanism. The author begins with an in-depth analysis of the notion of «cosmopolitan openness», still considered vague and indeterminate. Through theoretical considerations, «new» for this field of study, the research highlights two types of cosmopolitan aptitude, «generalized» and «instrumental », and their relation with the sense of territorial belonging («local» and «broad»). The study also analyses the link between transnational experiences and cosmopolitan openness, underlining it’s all but deterministic nature
