the first European festival on creativity

2022 Programme

Event #21

David Grossman, Alessandro Zaccuri

A world on the move

In David Grossman’s novels, the characters are often on the move: they run away from bad news or travel in search of an explanation, take a walk around the neighborhood or go round in circles to come up with a good idea, as the writer himself confesses to do when he is struggling with a new plot. For Grossman, in dialogue with Alessandro Zaccuri, movement is not only a matter of space, but is also a challenge against time, seeking a deep relationship which never fails to engage the readers of an author appreciated all over the world. Furthermore, movement represents the belief that immobility does not prevail and that there is always a possibility for the path of hope, coexistence, and peace.
