Libri Come

Libri Come, the city’s annual festival devoted to books and reading returns to Rome's Auditorium from 14-17 March with a packed programme of lectures, round-table discussions, book presentations, workshops for aspiring writers, and numerous stalls for publishing houses and e-literature.

Among the international guests at the fourth edition of the festival, whose theme is dedicated to Europe, is acclaimed British-Indian essayist Salman Rushdie; Irish author Catherine Dunne; and film makers Peter Greenaway and Nanni Moretti.

The event had a special preview in late January with an encounter with Wilbur Smith at the Auditorium.
