Alessandro Baricco Mantova Lectures
The three Mantova Lectures which Alessandro Baricco gave at the Mantua Philosophy Festival are going to be presented to the audience of the Teatro dell’Opera of Rome on 17, 24 and 31 October 2016 at 9 p.m. The initiative is a co-operation between the Teatro dell’Opera of Rome, the Scuola Holden of Turin and the P.R. Agency Elastica of Bologna.
The three lectures will focus on “ Truth”: -The Map of the London Underground -; on “Narrative”: -Alexander the Great – and on “Happiness”: -The Deposition by Rogier van der Weyden-.
Like The Palladium Lectures, presented in January 2013 in Rome, “The Mantova Lectures are not lessons” says Alessandro Baricco “They are a journey of the mind, an experience recreated in public, inside a theatre, for an hour and a half.”
