Simon(e) van Saarloos, Sulaiman Addonia and Donatella Della Ratta will perform new writing which they will create for this programme, while Anastasis Sarakatsanos will guide us through the programme with storytelling and music.

This programme includes reading in Italian and in English. All content will be translated into English.
