TriesteBookfest "Parole in viaggio
" wants to emphasize the link that has always existed between literature
The ideas born from this link are obviously many and range from themes concerning the "classic" travel literature with authors who have deepened with their works this mode, to topics that identify and describe the journey as a fundamental existential experience for openness, understanding and comparison with other human and social realities. A particular reflection will be devoted to the journey
as a necessity in the time of migration and the human and social implications that derive from it.
The festival will range from literature to journalistic reportage
, from history
, opening at the same time to different languages
, a characteristic that has always distinguished the festival and will constitute natural "containers" of the topic journey and opportunity to tell with images, sounds and words the richness and infinite possibilities of this experience that has always been part of human life.
A particular attention will be given to the theme of travel as a "slow" and conscious experience
, with in-depth studies on the stories of paths, on respect for the environment
, on the promotion and enhancement of the territory
Also the importance of the inner journey
that each of us carries out in his life will be a fundamental topic in the articulation of the meetings, together with the role of reading understood as an unparalleled possibility to travel with the mind and live and know. All meetings are free!
