the first European festival on creativity

2016 Program

Event #2

Jonathan Safran Foer, Ranieri Polese

That place called “home”

What can we call “home” today? In a globalized world that has reduced boundaries and distances, where is the place in which we recognize our roots, where we feel we belong? A question that is difficult to answer, also due to the fact that our fundamental relationships – family, with its roles which until recently were so strongly defined (father, mother, children) – no longer hold up. Questions that can be dramatic for a writer of the Jewish Diaspora who, with an ironic tone, tells the story of the end of stability in his relationship with family and with Israel. Setting off from these premises, Jonathan Safran Foer and Ranieri Polese will discuss important issues such as paternity, Jewish identity, the relationship with Israel, loved ones, memory.
