BORN TO BE A WRITER

WRITERS' PORTRAITS FROM THE FESTIVAL DEI POPOLI'S ARCHIVES

BORN TO BE A WRITER is a journey to discover great writers who made a great contribution to the world literature. Are writers born or made? Can the passion for writing overwhelm all the others? Does inspiration last?

Festival dei Popoli proposes, in the framework of Estate Fiorentina 2015, three portraits in which great writers speak about their ideas and their work. Through their own words we come to understand the meaning of: “Born to Be a Writer”.

New in this edition: the collective reading of selected pages of the three authors proposed by Marco Ferro (Riserva Canini) at Easy Living - Spiaggia sull'Arno (spiaggia Lungarno Serristori, Firenze)
