Mantua Festivaletteratura 2018
From today until September 9th 2018 Mantova returns to dress in blue for Festivaletteratura: five days of meetings with authors, workshops, lessons in the square, concerts and shows.
Special attention is paid to children and adolescents: numerous meetings, shows and workshops are designed for children or adults and children together.
All in Mantua, a pearl of the Renaissance recognized by UNESCO world heritage of humanity, where the gathering dimension of the city brings authors and readers closer, allowing everyone to easily move from one appointment to another on foot.
Among the more than 300 guest authors of this twenty-second edition: Pepe Mujica, Jhumpa Lahiri, Yanis Varoufakis, Luigi Lo Cascio, Paolo Giordano, Colapesce, Raina Telgemeier, Michela Murgia, Bruno Bozzetto, Maurizio Maggiani, Yan Lianke, Robert Darnton, Zerocalcare, Simonetta Lamb Hornby, Ascanio Celestini, Elif Batuman, Evgeny Morozov and David Sedaris. Fiction, poetry, but also music, science, history, economics, rights, technology, art, design and graphic novel, without forgetting a dense program of meetings and workshops for children.
