Florence Social Literature Festival - May 27-30

The city of Florence will be hosting the sixth edition of its Festival of Social Literature over the last weekend of May 2021. 

Visitors can expect four days of talks, debates, poetry, theatre and music, alongside stands and presentations from independent publishers, DIY book and magazine producers, self-managed bookstores and artists’ collectives.

On May 27th at 18:00, as part of the event’s opening program, Tesserae’s Lorenzo Tripodi will be chairing a panel on the theme of the right to the city, alongside architects’ collective Orizzontale and nomadic researcher Francesco Careri.

All of the festival’s events are free to attend and will be held at the Polveriera Spazio Comune alternative community space in Florence’s historic city centre, as well as being broadcast live by Radio Wombat Firenze.

Further information and a full program for the event can be found on the Polveriera Spazio Comune website.
