Numerous festivals and events, representing a cultural excellence, take place in the Tuscan Region, among which Capalbio Libri stands out, a literary festival dedicated to the pleasure of reading.
The event was conceived by Andrea Zagami, founder and administrator of the Zigzag communication agency, who has been managing and directing this important event since 2007. The municipality of Capalbio is pleased to host this event which takes place every year during the first two weeks of August. Capalbio Libri offers a moment of intense reflection and sharing of important and topical issues, seeking to experiment with innovative ways of promoting books and reading as a means to gather all generations.
Each meeting is attended by the authors of the essays and novels that are presented but also journalists, cultural and political figures such as the leading representative of the MIBACT (Ministry of Culture). A pleasant mix of culture, entertainment and information in which everyone can feel free to interact, converse or simply listen to come out enriched and grown inside.
This unique and important event can transform a physical place, like Piazza Magenta, into a no border space, open to the world and to the desire to learn about real life lessons. The aim is to transform every person into an aware reader and a better citizen through reading and the pleasure it brings.
