The ninth edition of the multiethnic festival Intermundia is taking place in the gardens of Piazza Vittorio between 15 May and 20 May. The festival aims to promote cultural dialogue and peace through literature, music, theatre, dance, debate, exhibitions, childrens workshops and ethnic cuisine. This years themes are immigrant literature, women in the world and respect for diversity, with free events taking place from 09.00 until late. Events for children take place during the day, while the adult programme starts at 17.00 with seminars run by non-governmental organisations (NGOs). At 19.00 each day there will be talks from foreign writers living and working in Italy followed by concerts from 20.00 onwards (including music from Brazil to Mongolia). Short films on the theme of immigrants and integration will be shown every night at 20.30. In addition, 48 associations and NGOs will be present with stands along the squares streets. Last year over 30,000 people took part, of which some 4,000 were children. For more information and a detailed programme of events see www.finisterre.it.
