You chose: le conversazioni

  • It has now been ten years since Antonio Monda and Davide Azzolini held the first edition of their literary festival “Le Conversazioni”, on the beautiful island of Capri. Since then the event has grown and now takes place in four different cities spanning over 3 continents. The festival takes the form of casual yet sophisticated discussions between notorious intellectual figures. We met with the organizers during their annual New York preview at NYU’s Casa Italiana Zerilli-Merimò and talked about the event’s inception and about what’s to be expected from the season’s NYC events at the Morgan Library, at the NY Historical Society, and at the Guggenheim.
  • The American editions of Le Conversazioni take place in New York in the auditorium of The Morgan Library and Museum. Through the leitmotiv underlying theme of the scenes that make up their life, cultural figures are invited to debate the yearly subject and, in general, their own creative activities. That of 2014 is the ninth edition of Le Conversazioni, a traveling festival that takes place in the beautiful island of Capri, in New York and, for the first time this year, in Rome.
  • Le Conversazioni is an anglophone literary festival created by two Italian film personalities: professor and writer Antonio Monda and Davide Azzolini. The festival takes place in the beautiful island of Capri, in New York and, for the first time this year, in Rome. The new edition was introduced by Monda himself at Casa Italiana Zerilli Marimo' and its topic is “Corruption & Purity.” At the Morgan Library Isabella Rossellini and Salman Rushdie talked about The Films of Their Life, or rather the films that have influenced their lives and work.
  • Created by Antonio Monda and Davide Azzolini, the itinerant literary and cultural festival takes place between New York and Capri and brings together international writers, journalists and intellectuals to discuss challenging topics and the art of writing.
