Meetings, lectures, dialogues, performances with many names of Italian and world literature. International guests include Etgar Keret, Selim Nassib, Julian Barnes, Ottessa Moshfegh, Boris Belenkin, Andrej Kurkov, Selby Wynn Schwartz and many more.

The key word of this edition of Books As is Humanity, simple and powerful yet full of contradictions and different and new meanings. At the very moment when old and new conflicts are asking us to strengthen our ability to remain human, the nature of the word seems eroded on two sides. In one respect, generative artificial intelligence can definitely blur the difference between man and machine. On the other hand, knowledge and sensitivity to the animal world makes the claim of our diversity and centrality more problematic. Humanity turns out to be a moving word, not to be eroded but to be extended to bring us up to the challenges of our time.
