On Thursday 22 September at 19.00, the Instituto Italiano de Cultura in Madrid presents the project Vislumbres Iberoamérica, a selected constellation of protagonists of the common history of Italy, Spain and Latin America.
The publication, conceived by the Cultural Counsellor of the Spanish Embassy in Italy, Ion de la Riva, the writer Marifé Santiago Bolaños and coordinated by Professor Beatriz Tejero, aims to create a “dictionary” that highlights the profound legacies between the three national and regional entities through their great and most influential figures.
The writing of the “voices” has been entrusted to artists, academics, writers, intellectuals and journalists who, through their work or their passion, are direct witnesses of these connections. The project is supported, among others, by the ILA (International Italo-Latin American Organisation), the Fondazione Formentor, the Barceló Group and the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR).
During the presentation, moderated by the director of the IIC Madrid, Marialuisa Pappalardo, and by the writer and editor of Vislumbres, Marifé Santiago Bolaños, the Italian Ambassador to Spain, Riccardo Guariglia, Beatriz Tejero, coordinator of Vislumbres, the professors Fanny Rubio, José Antonio G. Municio, Consuelo Sánchez-Naranjo, Elena Trapanese and Ivan Montebugnoli. The event will close with a musical performance by the Francis Poulenc Choir.
