This interesting event, organised by the Italian Geographical Society and Federculture, is dedicated to the art of travel literature in its various forms: books, films, photographs, drama and comics. As usual the festival includes numerous encounters with authors, journalists, travellers and storytellers. This year there is a special focus on the journey of Italian industry around the world, from Patagonia to Iran, from the US to Siberia, drawning on the archives of two Italian companies, Eni and Dalmine. There is also a section on the US, with an exhibition titled Go West! La frontiera, il viaggio, l’immaginario with rare images from the Italian Geographical Society documenting American frontier life during the 1870s; and Brazil whose embassy in Piazza Navona hosts an exhibition Brazil, old and new explorations with vintage photographs – also from the Italian Geographical Society – by Ermanno Stradelli, an Amazon explorer at the end the 19th century. Most of the festival events take place in Villa Celimontana’s Palazzetto Mattei and its gardens, and in Palazzo delle Esposizioni. For information www.festivaletteraturediviaggio.it.
