The Festival Brasil offers an entertaining week of Brazilian music, visual arts, dance, film, literature and food. Behind the event is Italy's Brazilian embassy which is promoting contemporary Brazilian culture to the Italian public, underlining the strong historical and cultural ties between the two countries. The festival hosts big names from Brazilian pop music such as Toquinho and Adriana Calcanhotto; and songwriters and established musicians like Zeca Baleiro and Luíz Filip. The Mixhell project provides electronic and dance music while the visual arts are represented by Regina Silveira, Odires Mlászho and the noted Italian photographer Massimo Listri, who exhibits images of Brazilian architecture. There is a dance show by choreographer Bruno Beltrão, and a performance by a capoeira group. Fans of Brazilian literature can look forward to the presentation of a book about the famous writer Clarice Lispector, with a conference by American biographer Benjamin Moser. Rosa Emília Dias presents a show for children, and there is also a programme of Brazilian films. Auditorium Parco Della Musica, Viale Pietro De Coubertin 30, tel. 06802411, www.auditorium.com.
