Pordenonelegge 2022 edition

14-18 September
Pordenonelegge 2022 edition

Held in September in the quaint northeast city of Pordenone, sixty kilometres and an hour’s drive from Venice, pordenonelegge.it is one of Italy’s oldest, longest running and most prestigious literature festivals. Founded in 2000, the fest has ever since consolidated its reputation as a go-to cultural event within and beyond the country, welcoming over 100,000 book lovers and visitors each year.
Stashed with hundreds of events, readings, workshops and panels, pordenonelegge.it is a literary feast open to people from all walks of life, ages, interests and backgrounds. All throughout the festival’s five days, a city home to some sixty thousand people - a little gem that traces its origins back to Ancient Rome, and boasts a gorgeous medieval city centre attracting tourists all year round - turns into a small-scale utopia, welcoming authors and readers from all over the world.


It’s a moveable and ever-growing stage wherein writers, philosophers, journalists, poets and artists come to share the love for their crafts, and engage with readers in debates around some of the world’s most pressing issues. For pordenonelegge.it is as much about the authors it invites as the crowds that gather around them, and that’s what makes the festival so invaluable: its ability to narrow the distance between writers and readers, and open up spaces for dialogue and cultural exchange.

Some events will be recorded and available online soon after the festival on the dedicated channel Pordenonelegge TV.

The preview of the festival will be  available online, in live streaming, on Thursday 8 September at 18:30 (CET) in Prague, a cultural and literary bridge between the West and East-Europe with speakers including the Directors of the Italian Cultural Institute and the Festival, the Italian writer Emanuele Trevi, author of "Prague 1990, the path of hope" and the Executive Director of the Library Václav Havel Michael Žantovský, former spokesman of the President of the Czech Republic Vaclav Havel, outstanding author and playwright.
