All literature is a Utopia

is a Utopia

At the heart of the Utopia Literary Festival pulses the greatest of inventions, one that is present in all branches of the arts, science and knowledge: the book. A simple object whose technical aspects have scarcely changed over the centuries. A tool that helps us understand the world and which remains, even in our accelerated times, the greatest vessel for lasting cultural capital.

At Utopia, literature is the starting point for talks, workshops, shows, activities for schools, literary tours and much more over the course of 11 days.
