Bookcity 2023 | Mediterranean. Interfaces of cultures

Now available on the Fondazione Luigi Rovati's YouTube channel are the lectures of the cycle "Mediterranean. Interfaces of Cultures", developed on the occasion of Bookcity 2023.



Hosted by Maurizio Harari, the conversations offer wide-ranging reflections, focusing on the theme of the Mediterranean as a fundamental and stable cultural network, a complex region, home to diverse peoples throughout history.
The appointments deal with the central role of antiquity in the modern and contemporary world: a perpetual connection between past and present, highlighted through a continuity of language, images and forms of expression that comes to shape our identity in a rich and multifaceted way, as a polychromatic product sprung from diverse cultural influences.
