Join us for an intercultural dialogue hosted by The Umbra Institute and Il Circolo dei Lettori di Perugia (the local book club) on Thursday, November 8th at the Civic Museum Palazzo della Penna. The event is designed to bring two great artists together on the same stage – Edgar Lee Masters and Fabrizio De Andrè. Following an aperitivo (starting at 7:30pm, 6€/person), a selection of Edgar Lee Masters’ poems will be read by American and Italian university students and Fabrizio De Andrè’s songs, based on the poems, will be performed in by musician Domenico Caglioti. A short informal discussion will follow.
