Authors at MAXXI. How to write about Africa.Africa in Rome: an Afro-Italian evening
The event is part of YAP FEST 2018 MAXXI courtyard – free entry until full capacity myMAXXI cardholders can make reservations by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org, by the day before the event (10 places available)
curated by Maria Ida Gaeta and Isabella Ferretti
A large continent read through the words of its authors
A cycle of events at which to meet authors that, despite their different origins and destinations, biographies and talents, share the extraordinary ability to use their books to describe Africa’s infinite nuances and its complex diaspora.
MAXXI’s courtyard will host an evening of music and readings dedicated to Afro-Italian writers: Cristina Ali Farah, Gabriella Ghermandi, Igiaba Scego e Brhan Tesfay, four of the most representative voices of black Italian culture, will alternate with songs played by Coro Multietnico Romolo Balzani, forming both an accompaniment and a counterpoint. Each foreigner teaches a song that accompanied them on their voyage, each learns a song in another language and from another culture and, in this way, no one is foreign anymore.
The authors, Italians with roots in Somalia, Ethiopia and Eritrea, recount an Italy that is alive and multicultural, not just on paper, unified by the power of words, by the desire to get to know one other and share a vast common heritage that is just waiting to be enhanced.
