‘Scrittorincittà’, or writers in residence, is a literary festival that started in 1999. Every year a theme is chosen as a central thread to run through encounters with authors, who, over the course of 5 days, present their work to the public via debates, conferences and workshops.
Some of these events are intended for adults and others for children and youth audiences. There’s an area set out like a book shop, where previous writers’ works are available. At the same time, there’s also a film season and an award, Premio Primo Romanzo, for début fictional works by new novelists.
It’s an intense and enthusiastic, cultural festival, combining fabulous events around national previews, shows, music and theatre. Not to be missed.
