    (ANSAmed) - PALERMO, OCTOBER 1 - Palermo will host the first Festival of Migrant Literatures from October 7 to October 11.

    The event will engage authors of literary texts and reportage, cinema and docu-films, without shunning theatre, and "cuntu" the oral and physical tale that represents true cultural heritage in the south of the world.

    This is a festival to retrace the steps of other 'migrations', we experience thanks to literature and the knowledge of cultural coordinates that until recently were still foreign and marginal and which have been recuperated thanks to new communication techniques.

    The programme will be presented tomorrow at 9.30 a.m at Palazzo Cefalà, hosting the Consulta delle culture (Cultures board) with the attendance, among others of Palermo mayor Leoluca Orlando and of the artistic director of the festival, Davide Camarrone.

    The programme is directed at schools, cultural institutes, archives, theatres and museums in Palermo. (ANSAmed).
