Il Libro Possibile 2021 celebrates its 20th edition
This year Il Libro Possibile reaches an important aim: the 20th year since its foundation. It was 2001 when four young people from the newly founded Associazione Culturale Artes decided to launch a very ambitious project: to bring the pleasure of reading to the streets, with the intention of sharing it with the people. The guys worked to make reading accessible to everyone, moving the event to Castellana Grotte. Despite the initial difficulties, the festival arrived in Polignano a Mare amidst much mistrust and little interest from the public, but this did not discourage the event organisers who continued to propose the initiative without stopping. Their commitment and perseverance were rewarded and Il Libro Possibile festival has become one of the most famous events on the Italian scene.
Il Libro Possibile 2021, many events full of culture and sharing
Il Libro Possibile in Polignano a Mare attracts every year hundreds of visitors and also for the new edition a large turnout is expected, which unfortunately will be limited by the anti-Covid19 measures. The event, directed by Rosella Santoro, is divided into four events in which, at the same time, in the most evocative points of the historic centre of Polignano, meetings with intellectuals, celebrities and politicians, who have the opportunity to dialogue with their audience, take place. Debates in which the latest publishing news, current cultural trends, the most discussed topics and how the publishing world is evolving are discussed. In Vieste too, four days will be devoted to getting to know the current protagonists of the cultural world.
Il Libro Possibile, where "The sky is always bluer".
Like every edition, Il Libro Possibile festival is dedicated to a specific theme. This time, "Il cielo è sempre più blu", one of Rino Gaetano's greatest hits, is at the heart of the festival, conceived as a new way of starting over and getting back together. A theme chosen above all for its social value, in reference to the desire to get back on your feet after the current crisis. A look of hope for the future, to continue to dream of a better situation than the pandemic. Throughout the initiative, a great contribution is given by the numerous volunteers who put their work at the disposal of the event, contributing significantly to its success, which becomes, therefore, an important moment of aggregation and exchange of ideas. The festival is open to all, everyone can participate and take part in it, respecting the antiCovid19 rules such as the ban on assembling.
