Festival I Boreali

The Teatrino present two new appointments of the Festival I Boreali, dedicated to North European culture, conceived and organised by the publishing house Iperborea.

Talk by Frederik Sjöberg

The Swedish entomologist, biologist, literary critic and journalist Frederik Sjöberg meets the Italian author and literary critic Paolo Nori.
Frederik Sjöberg, collector of insects, presents his latest book L'arte della fuga (Iperborea, 2017), which concludes his trilogy dedicated to collectionism and reconstructs the life of the restless painter Gunner Widforss (Stockholm, 1879 - Grand Canyon, 1934), known in North America as "the painter of national parks".
Talk in English with simultaneous interpretation in Italian

Literary boxing match

Dedicated to the trilogy of Swedish author Stieg Larsson, the 'literary boxing match' will see comedy actor and author Carlo Gabardini face Cinzia Poli, author and radio presenter - with the referee Marco Ardemagni, poet and tv author.
This new format of interaction with the public, half way between play and competition, invites the protagonists to fight on the 'ring' with their power of conviction. This new debate is among the most innovative and engaging formats thanks to the active involvement of the public, asked to choose the winner.
