Con molto piacere dopotutto [d|t] da notizia del Festival di Letteratura Italiana di Londra organizzato e promosso dall’amico Marco Mancassola. A seguire tutte le indicazioni.
Two days of events, over 30 speakers, authors and thinkers from different backgrounds, established writers and younger radical ones. Italian, British, and international voices will discuss literature and topics such as migration, politics, Italy, the present and future of London, and how Brexit is already affecting novels and poems. That is the formula of the Festival of Italian Literature in London / Festival Italiano di Letteratura a Londra (FILL), which will take place at the Coronet Theatre Notting Hill on October 21 and 22, 2017.
The programme includes “Citizens of Nowhere?” with Strega Prize winner Melania Mazzucco and Franco-American author Lauren Elkin, “Italian Politics for Dummies”, “Getaway to Europe”, “The Last London?” (with Iain Sinclair, Olivia Laing and Tate Modern senior curator Andrea Lissoni). And again, Giancarlo De Cataldo (the author that inspired “Suburra”, Netflix’s new Original Series), Zerocalcare (Italy’s most beloved cartoonist), the secret history of Italian and British music with Rob Young of The Wire, and way much more – including an atmospheric bar, a book stall, Italian street food, and dj sets.
Nearly all events will be in English or in Italian with English translation. Programme and tickets: http://fill.org.uk/events/
