Città dei Promessi Sposi ed. 2018
Lecco hosts the cultural festival about dedicated to Alessandro Manzoni
THURSDAY 11 OCTOBER 2018 – MONDAY 26 NOVEMBER 2018
Lecco City of the Promessi Sposi again this year with its fundamental objectives: the enhancement of the works of Alessandro Manzoni, Italian and European intellectual, the actualization of his thought, the dissemination of new studies on the great writer and the redevelopment of the heritage Manzoni cultural, in the city and on the territory.
The commitment to raise its qualitative dimension, through the involvement of prestigious national institutions, pursued last year, is reconfirmed with the participation of the Treccani Foundation, which will open the show (now a real festival) with the big conference to be held at the Polytechnic of Lecco.
But the theme of this year promotes a further expansion of perspectives, allowing a comparison with prestigious international cultural institutions to be activated, going on the trail of the Goethe-Manzoni relationship with the help of the Weimar-Jena Akademie and the Villa Vigoni Foundation. rethinking, in the comparison between the romantic and the present age, the dimension of the journey as a pleasant cultural exchange and a vehicle of knowledge, but also as a dramatic existential experience, determined by persecution of power and international conflicts.
An ambitious and vast theme, but suggested by the always valid reflections of Don Lisander on the relationship between war, famine and migrations of peoples, as well as his biography: that of a man who, despite being shy and afflicted by phobias, willingly kept him in the his bedroom, he traveled between Milan, Paris, Florence and Rome for necessity, initially also existential then only intellectual.
With the usual variety and vastness of events, including training, conferences, literary cafes, theatrical and musical performances, exhibitions, readings in plain air, guided tours and workshops for families and students, for three weeks everyone will find the most appropriate proposals to your needs: from deepening knowledge to fulfillment through a pleasant dissemination and an intelligent hedonism, without forgetting the possibility of offering an additional opportunity for cultural tourism.
