Festa: “The culture of books is fundamental because it helps to tell us, get to know us and make us known”
Avellino – Today, at Villa Amendola, the second edition of the “Literary Avellino” review was presented. The event, sponsored by the municipality, province and diocese of Avellino, promoted by Festa Viaggi, was organized by Annamaria Picillo, President of Itinerando Irpinia. The initiative, which officially begins on May 28 and ends on December 17, consists of 12 inevitable meetings dedicated to culture: from music, theater to poetry, science and philosophy.
The basic purpose is to promote literature, make known and re-evaluate our municipalities’ historical, artistic, cultural and religious heritage and thus create an identity sharing: “Our city has culture and also our places, we have a territory that deserves to be observed, loved and visited. We have magnificent places that deserve to be known and visited “. – declared Picillo- “We are here to start a new literary journey: 12 events that will deal with literary works, fiction, non-fiction and above all local history, because it is through the book that we must pass on and learn about our origins and our predecessors. This initiative stems from the desire to be together; I thank the municipal administration, which gave me the opportunity not only to write this format, but also to convey the love for my city ».
Also present at the event was the first citizen, Gianluca Festa, who emphasized the importance of culture, an essential element capable of making known not only ourselves but also our roots: “Annamaria presented the initiative during the pandemic and feared that difficulties would arise in supporting it, despite this, the idea was received with interest, attention and courage. The culture of books is fundamental because it helps to tell us, get to know us and make ourselves known. Within Campania we are a little known and we do not have the courage to go beyond the borders. Therefore, we must have the strength and courage to relate to this noble sense of culture and support the initiatives that enable us to pass on our story. Culture helps us grow. These events allow us to experience our city and feel it ours. “
