Sep 2 - 4, 2011 - Festival della Mente in Sarzana
The sold out Festival of the Mind returns to Sarzana between Sep 2 to 4th, The event was attended by more than 40 thousand people last year, and it looks like the 2011 edition will be no different.
The festival begins on Friday, Sep 2nd at 9:15pm in Piazza Matteotti, with Zygmut Bauman. It was a great choice to hold the lecture in the open at the heart of Sarzana, so that despite the sold out event many will be able to still walk outside and listen to one of the most important thinkers of our time.
Another sold-out show part of three meetings held by the historian Alessandro Barbero is under the theme "How we thought the man of the Middle Ages?" and will take place Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 23.15 from the stands of the Fortress Firmafede.
Another show presented by Silvio Orlando, "Diderot, Rameau and other paradoxes," will be held on Saturday at 21.30 in the Cloister of St. Francis.
