BOOKCITY MILANO 2018
BookCity Milano, the celebration of books and reading that, from the 15th to the 18th of November 2018 animated the city with readings and meetings dedicated to reading in all of its forms.
The Castello Sforzesco was, like every year, the heart of the event: encounters and debates with great Authors that alternated in six different rooms, throughout the whole festival. From Erri De Luca to Marco Malvaldi, from Dacia Maraini to Luis Sepùlveda, from Vittorio Sgarbi to Lilli Gurber, and the Senator Liliana Segre. The Castle was the reference point for the readers. Here the public, the Journalists and all the different Publishers were able to find, through various services and preparations, two info-points, the pressroom and the BookCity library.
Even for this edition of BookCity was also held in BASE Milano with three days of Art, Illustration and Publishing events.
h+ for the second year in a row took care of and produced the special project of “BookCity nelle case”: readings in the most intimate spaces for Milan’s locals, that for the occasion opened their own homes to the public. A trip that in ten words, became a story in various private locations, located in different points of the city. Words that in the common use came to be abused, lost and emptied that rediscovered their sense in writing and reading, interpreted from the actual Authors or from reading volunteers.
