This last book will be discussed during the literary café on August 1, because the center and the margin are never as today opposed, mixed and sometimes exchange the parts of the game for the conquest, extension and defense of concrete freedoms. Individual.

According to Magris, the idea of ​​margin crosses our lives more than we can imagine: the margin separates the center from the periphery or the border that every society has to face where there is economic and social marginalization.

The center and the periphery are places in constant change that intersect art, literature, economics and geography. Francesco Magris walks through these margins and looks at them from all sides and has fun deeply crossing all the borders he encounters.

The evening, introduced by Ezio Privitera, Pino Bova for the Tennis Club and Rhegium Julii and Natina Cristiani for the Lions Club Host respectively, will see the introduction of the author Aldo Nove and the speeches of Ilda Tripodi and Francesco Costantino.

The evening will be enriched with a painting exhibition entitled Colors of Time by the master Michele Praticò. The exhibition is scheduled to open already on July 31, at 19.30 with the authoritative speeches by Gabriele Quattrone and Paolo Morisani.
