VII edition of “Atletica del Cuore” with performances, workshops and conference

The seventh edition of Atletica del Cuore begins with a performance act (December 16, 2022), continues with workshops (February/March 2023) and ends with the conference day (April 1, 2023). The word that inspires the stages of the journey is End. As always, the word limits itself to delimiting a field of action of thought and for this reason it will be declined, imagined, deconstructed and re/invented by bringing together different disciplines, methods and reflections. We want Athletics of the Heart to be a path that generates complexity and questions, things that unite both the creative act and the pedagogical relationship. We believe that complexity is necessary to read the stratifications and contradictions that inhabit the human being, always so indefinable.

the radio marathon on Giorgio Manganelli will come to life on Friday 16 December 2022 at 19.00.
Giorgio Antonio Manganelli (Milan, November 15, 1922 – Rome, May 28, 1990) was an Italian writer, translator, journalist, literary critic, editorial curator and teacher, as well as one of the most consistent theorists of the neo-avant-garde. He actively took part in the meetings of Gruppo 63 and was one of the editors of Grammatica. He collaborated with numerous newspapers such as Il Giorno, La Stampa, Corriere della Sera, Il Messaggero, and with various weeklies (L’Espresso, Il Mondo, L’Europeo, Epoca) and monthlies (FMR). Author of numerous works of elaborate and complex prose, which often oscillates between the story-vision and the treatise, Manganelli affirmed in his Literature as a lie of 1967 that the task of literature is to transform reality into falsehood, scandal and mystification , resolved in a pure play of forms, through which writing becomes a contestation. In Manganelli’s works parody and sarcasm are practiced in refined and acrobatic literary forms.
