Festival Letteratura 2018

Hits: 1957

5 - 9 settembre 2018 - Mantua

Festivaletteratura is one of Italy’s most anticipated annual events. Since its inception in 1997, this five-day festival of gatherings with authors, readings, guided tours, performances and concerts has seen artists come from all four corners of the globe to come together in Mantua, getting first-hand experience of the truly unforgettable festive atmosphere.

 The Festival plays host to world-famous writers and poets, some of the most interesting voices from emerging literatures, essayists, musicians, artists and scientists who foster a more complex and unusual notion of literature that includes unconventional literary domains and languages. Festivaletteratura pays special attention to young people: many of the events, performances and workshops across the five days are especially devised for youngsters, or to be enjoyed by young and old alike. Everything takes place in Mantua, a World Heritage Site and veritable gem of the Renaissance. Not only does the compact size of the city bring authors and readers together, it also means that everyone can easily get from one event to another on foot.
