FESTIVAL INTERNAZIONALE EUROPA IN VERSI 2020
POETRY AND FREEDOM
Friday 9th, Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th October 2020
The theme this year will be "Poetry and Freedom", in all its multifaceted features , from the freedom to express in poetry feelings, emotions, ideas that belong to all men, without distinctions of culture, religion, and gender, to the freedom to travel in a world without barriers and borders, in mutual respect for each other's cultural identity. This is now felt to be a crucial issue, considering that people have felt the discomfort of living with severe restrictions on personal freedom due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
