Letteratura Football Club: ROMA - TEL AVIVThe story match

MAXXI Auditorium – admittance free while places available

A football-literature challenge through readings

Through football and storytelling, Italian and Israeli writers meet and play, with words and balls, recounting two countries and their reciprocal contemporaneity.
An initiative born out of a desire to underline the friendship between the two teams and to explore the debate, developing together a contemporary narrative that takes its cues from football, Israel and Italy and ranges wherever the ideas and the words that give them form take it.

Israel writers team: Yonatan Berg, Assaf Gavron, Etgar Keret, Amichai Shalev, Noam Slonim
Nazionale italiana scrittori: Carlo D’Amicis, Gian Luca Favetto, Carlo Grande, Giampaolo Simi, Francesco Trento
Readings by: Francesca Guercio and Riccardo Zinna
Presented (and refereed) by: Anna Maria Giordano, RadioTre RAI
With “live” drawings by: Paolo Samarelli

This event is part of the Letteratura Football Club: ROMA – TEL AVIV initiative, conceived by Osvaldo Soriano FC – Nazionale Italiana scrittori, with the support of the Israeli Embassy in Italy and produced in collaboration with the Lazio Region, the Jewish community of Rome, the Ministry of Education, Calcio Solidale inFest and the Fondazione MAXXI, with the patronage of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
