The third edition of Le Conversazioni – Writers in Conversation will take place in Capri from June 27 to July 6, organized by Dazzle Communication with FMR Foundation –Marilena Ferrari, joining this year as a partner of the review.
Ideated by Antonio Monda and Davide Azzolini, the cycle of literary meetings with English language authors, will be hosted, as in past years, in the small Tragara square of Capri.

The meetings will be recorded also in a Quaderno published by FMR featuring unpublished writings by the invited authors enriched by an iconographic section inspired by the theme of the edition.
