The International Literature Festival Returns to Rome

The International Literature Festival Returns to Rome

Stadio Palatino hosts Letterature International Festival’s 2022 edition this summer

For its 21st annual edition, the words of the most remarkable literary talents will reverberate through the Roman Forum. Every year the International Literature Festival of Rome has invited many Italian and international authors whose prose and poetry has emblazoned the contemporary literary scene, with a new theme to inspire the guest authors.

This year’s topic, Tempo nostro, is a look at the present with new eyes, changing our perspective. On the 100th year since Marcel Proust’s death, Tempo nostro is meant to be a tribute to the author, but also an invitation to reclaim what we we have lost. Among the names that will alternate on the stage: Javier Cercas, Colson Whitehead, Katie Kitamura, Deborah Levy.

This year the Istituzione Biblioteche di Roma will organize a preview of four appointments with international guests at the Casa della Letteratura in Piazza dell’Orologio, 3: André Aciman on Monday, June 20; Matei Vișniec on Thursday, June 23; Lillian Fishman on Tuesday, June 28; and Lea Hager Coen on Thursday, June 30.
