L’Altro sono io. Maratona di letture migranti

Siamo lieti di invitare tutti gli studenti e i docenti e tutti gli interessati alla Maratona di Letture Migranti che si terrà martedì 23 ottobre nel cortile di Ca’ Foscari a partire dalle 13.45. E’ preziosa la presenza di tutti, per testimoniare e vivere il desiderio di ascoltare le voci di chi nei secoli e non solo oggi, a tutte le latitudini e in tante lingue, ha raccontato l’esperienza della migrazione. Per capire di  più.

E’ una letteratura-mondo, una letteratura-viaggio, una letteratura-esperienza e memoria che arricchisce e rende unica la narrativa italiana contemporanea e le narrative di molte altre nazioni e culture, a cui contribuiscono esperienze e storie di e da tutto il mondo.
