Ep.18 | Festival – ENG
A production of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and storielibere.fm, in partnership with cultural association Monteverdelegge
How did the cultural festivals held every year in so many Italian cities come about? Who are the people that attend them? What impact do they have on the places where they are held?
Leafing through the Alfabeto Italiano, the page opens at the letter F, F for Festival. A word that, over the last twenty or thirty years, has gained increasing importance not only in the country’s cultural system but also in the social and economic life of many of Italy’s cities and citizens.
With Marzia Corraini (Festivalettatura) and Giulia Cogoli (Festival della Mente – Dialoghi di Pistoia)
ALFABETO ITALIANO ENG
Of Maria Teresa Carbone
A production of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and storielibere.fm, in collaboration with cultural association Monteverdelegge
How does the world of books operate today? What does the work of a publishing house consist of? And how do Italian publishers look abroad? Alfabeto Italiano, the podcast made by Storielibere for the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, tells the story of publishing in Italy in 24 words, from A to Z. This journey to discovery the passionate work hidden behind every book is conducted by Maria Teresa Carbone, author, journalist and translator, who meets the heads of publishing houses, booksellers and communicators, graphic designers and translators, teachers and illustrators: an ideal journey towards two events where Italians will be to the fore, the Salon du Livre de Paris 2023 and the Frankfurter Buchmesse 2024.
