Travel stories and stories by the writers Martino Baldi, Athos Bigongiali, Bruno Casini and Paolo Ciampi

Curated by Festival del Viaggio 2017, XII edition – Livorno, Firenze, Prato

Come to the courtyard of the Museo Novecento. Choose a writer and follow him. He will tell you about his most incredible journey. For your ears only. A literary first fruit, never tried yet. The project, borrowed from “human books” in which a reader chooses a writer and has a story told face to face, foresees the journey instead of the story. The reader / spectator will thus be able to have one of our writers at his complete disposal to be enchanted directly by the voice of the story.
