Summer at MAXXI - The wonders of the possible.

Science fiction? Games, inventions, and traps by Damiano Malabaila aka Primo Levi

Graziella Lonardi Buontempo Hall – free admittance until full capacity
10 individual seats reserved for myMAXXI cardholders writing to
mymaxxi@fondazionemaxxi.it by the day before the event

Three dates to discuss and explore the literature and the science fiction orbiting the Moon.

For more than forty years Primo Levi wrote stories that he was not able to precisely define: technology fiction? biology fiction? tethology fiction? In each of those stories the author describes an invented but possible (and worrying) world, but published the first fifteen of them, presenting himself with an invented name: to suggest, perhaps, that those who invent new worlds end up inventing new languages.
