“Italo Calvino and Sanremo. In search of a vanished city”- 23 November 2023

On Thursday 23 November at 6 p.m., we look forward to seeing you at the Ubik Savona bookshop (Corso Italia) for a meeting with the journalist and writer


and presentation of the book
“Italo Calvino and Sanremo. In search of a vanished city”
(Il Canneto Editore)

Edited by the Istituto Internazionale di Studi Liguri sez.Sabazia and Civico Museo Archeologico di Savona

Laura Guglielmi, starting from the suggestions of the writer’s texts, traces an unprecedented itinerary in time and space. She recounts the Sanremo of Italo Calvino (on the centenary of the birth of the great Sanremo writer). What emerges in this text is not only a geographic-literary itinerary, but also the ecological soul of Italo Calvino, who as early as the 1950s told of a wacky Barone Rampante who believed in the rights of animals and trees. Calvino in ‘Building Speculation’ sketched an Italy that was getting rich without any respect for the environment. And this book brings to light the wounds inflicted on the land from the Second World War to the present day.
