Leggendo Metropolitano is a Festival of Literature that counts on a great success and attention from the media, the critics and international and national intellectuals as well. Since the beginning, it was marked by the pursuit of important and current issues, while maintaining the central role of literature and language. Every year the different topics are related to a main concept. For this reason, the Festival encompasses a mixture of professions and a multidisciplinary approach from literature to philosophy, history, law, journalism and science among others. Yearly, a substantial section is devoted to Nobel Prizes winners' lectures. In 2017 the main concept will be based on "memory".
