SCRIVERE PER AMORE – INTERNATIONAL LITERARY PRIZE – VERONA, 16-19 OCTOBER 2019
“Love that can only be conjugated at infinite present reaches the paramount of lyric inspiration and sinks into the abyss of scandalous behavior.”
For its XXIV edition, the literary prize “Scrivere per Amore” (Writing for Love), conceived and promoted by Verona’s Club di Giulietta in cooperation with Verona Municipality and Fondazione Pordenonelegge, is upgraded to the rank of Festival. Love is a pervasive essence that a city associated with the sublime romance of Romeo and Juliet cannot but enhance and make resonate within and beyond its territory. The exploration of the underlying theme of this edition – the love for books and books on love – is entrusted to insightful and original authors and thinkers. During the numerous events of the Festival, its protagonists will accompany the public in the discovery of some of the nuances reverberating through Love, understood as the lifeblood for the blooming of literary expressions, regardless of time and space boundaries.
The festival will open with an original ‘slam’ and will unfold through incursions into Mozart’s theatrical trilogy, reflections on “The passions and choices” and on seduction in modern narcissism, experiences of cinema and poetry, up to the proclamation of the year’s best love novel. It will also be an opportunity to experience the most evocative places of the city through new narratives. More details can be found on the Festival’s website.
The experience of the Festival of Beauty has led us to support with enthusiasm the festival “Scrivere per Amore”. The promotion of selected cultural initiatives is part of our company DNA and keeps propelling us beyond the ovens to find sources of inspiration with which to nurture the productive activity, in a virtuous circle that has not stopped since 1952.
