Events in Italy
  • Salone Internazionale del Libro di Torino EXTRA
    The first International Book Fair to go live at home.
    From Thursday May, 14 to Sunday May, 17 2020


While waiting for the right conditions to hold the regular edition in autumn or whenever possible, the Salone Internazionale del Libro book fair has decided to react to the crisis. Salone del Libro has conceived a special edition involving the very best minds of the world, that will take place completely online.

A rich program of live streaming events will be broadcasted by the website of Salone del Libro and by its main media partner Rai, the national public broadcasting company, offering the chance to interact with national and international guests. Thanks to the collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and with the network of the 82 Italian Cultural Institutes, it will be possible to reach communities of readers, students of Italian courses, lovers of books and Italian culture all over the world.

Salone Extra will be characterised by over 50 conversations with international and Italian authors, actors, philosophers, musicians, scientists to discuss their work and how their views are holding up against this groundbreaking scenario. It will be a unique blend of familiar and emerging voices, with a strong take on sustainable economics, new ecologies, climate change, artificial intelligence, feminism, the resistance of translation and the poetics of space.

Most events are open to an English speaking audience, with Italian subtitles provided.
Selected events in Italian will be subtitled in English.
