The 33th International Book Fair is also back in attendance, which from 14 to 18 October will be in Turin in Halls 1, 2, 3 and Oval of Lingotto Fiere, as well as in the spaces of the Lingotto Congress Center.
The 33rd edition of the event will have “Supernova Life” as its theme. A Dantesque reference that contains a play on words indicative of the period we are experiencing. That is, the supernova is a star that explodes with an energy that can be useful or destructive and a light that can blind or illuminate.
The post Covid-19 world is an unknown factor to be deciphered. It will take a far-sighted look to build a future worth living in. There will be a need for courage, intelligence, a sense of responsibility, imagination.
And the 33th International Book Fair is a laboratory of ideas, where these issues will find space for debate. Because in one of the most uncertain and complicated periods, the book proved to be a solid landing, offering to readers of all ages comfort, reflection, consolation, company.
And it is precisely a supernova ridden by Artemis, goddess of moonlight and personification of the independent and warrior female spirit, the protagonist of the manifesto of this edition of the International Book Fair. This was illustrated by Elisa Seitzinger, visual artist and professor of morphology and dynamics of form at the European Institute of Design in Turin.
