The first event in the festival is a conversation with Hans Magnus Enzensberger. The meeting will be chaired by Antonio Gnoli, who will give us a guided tour of the multi-faceted cultural universe of the special guest at this year’s edition of “Dedica”, describing the way in which he lives his poetry and prose, his passion for science, his many trips and meetings, and his books, including Josephine e io (Josephine and I), published by Einaudi to coincide with the Dedica festival.


Other important details may be found in the volume that each year accompanies the festival and includes Enrico Ganni’s interview with the author, a poem dedicated to Enzensberger by Michael Kruger, and a previously-unpublished essay which Hans Magnus Enzensberger has very kindly granted to “Dedica”.
The volume Dedica a Hans Magnus Enzensberger (Homage to Hans Magnus Enzensberger), edited by Enrico Ganni, is on sale during the festival or on this internet site.
