Festival della Letteratura Mantova
The Mantua Literature Festival was founded in 1997, and it is a cultural exhibition that traditionally occurs on the first days of September. During this important event, they disclose, following an interesting sequence, reading meetings, authors, but also concerts and performances, as well as artistic installations.
Since its early years, the exhibition has benefitted from a remarkable success and public acknowledgment, making it one of the most appreciated appointments of culture and literature in our country as much as in the rest of Europe. The Mantua Literature Festival draws inspiration from similar exhibitions already existing in Anglo-Saxon Countries; in particular, the one that takes place in Wales is known as Hay-on-Wye.
Not without reason, this peculiar formula has found a fine adaptation in those particular traits of the town that gave birth to Virgil. The Mantua Literature Festival is also characterised due to the peculiarity of its meetings that occur between authors and public. Nevertheless, Mantua itself offers a wonderful background to the execution of those meetings that occur exactly within the marvellous old town, on its squares, and in its gardens, as well as inside its extraordinary lordly palaces.
When you stay at the Agritourism Corte Rocca, located in Lombardy in San Giorgio di Mantova near Villanova de Bellis (District of Mantua), you can take advantage to see the infancy signs international festival.
The theatre of art and infancy signs international festival is a magnificent artistic event, oriented to both children and kids within an age ranging from 18 months up to 18 years inclusive. It is dedicated as much to the school environment, as the family one, as well as to any theatre lover, but also to the research and expression of arts.
Artists coming from several European and even more distant countries will exhibit in shows,multidisciplinary performances, itineraries of art, and workshops, where dance, sculpture, theatre, painting and music, will mix into an incessant inspiration among arts.
The theatre of art and infancy signs international festival takes its origins from a Dario Moretti’s idea, in 2006. It is based on the belief that it is feasible providing children a high-quality artistic proposal, which is not aimed only to entertainment ending in itself, but which is able to offer them those creative, emotive, and sensory stirrings that only children are able to absorb and rework with great strength and often through brilliant and unexpected ways.
