Error Day

The Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna is hosting a 3-day festival that will celebrate and explore the human propensity to screw up. They're calling it Error Day. Festivities begin on Feb. 28 and continue until Mar. 2.

From the website for the event (which is mostly in Italian, but has a few pages in English): "Welcome errors, blunders, mistakes, miscarriages, misunderstandings, omissions, faults, failures, inaccuracies, misapprehensions, oversights, misprints, howlers, wrongs, gaffes, lapsuses, goofs, betrayals, fails, falls: here is humanity's true common denominator!"

How do we know the actual event isn't supposed to be March 7 - 9?

Could be if the dates were a misprint!

Since it takes place in Bologna, I'm somewhat disappointed to discover that Umberto Eco seems to have no connection to this festival whatsoever.

Dear Sirs, Umberto Eco is not the only intellectual in Bologna, we've got a lady called Clelia Sedda who is more cute! We looking forward to seeing you next year
