Exhibition: Scripting the Globe. Italian Literary Journals in the World.

- 10:00 am
Following WWII, Italian literary journals connected intellectuals across the world. Il Politecnico, Lo Spettatore italiano, Nuovi Argomenti and Botteghe Oscure are some of the many publishing initiatives which fostered intellectual debate beyond Italian borders from the 1940s to the early 1960s, receiving worldwide interest and recognition and functioning as transnational springboards for contemporary Italian authors. This exhibition presents an opportunity for visitors to follow the cultural and literary exchange between Italian editors and international writers and intellectuals. Much of the correspondence in the exhibition is unpublished and now displayed in public for the first time. Exhibition open Monday to Friday, 10am to 2pm and in the evening during events, until Friday 27th June.
