Ad alta voceby Emiliano Corazza | :venews

After Subway’s metropolitan stories, here comes Ad Alta Voce, directly on boat, with authors reading and travelling among passengers...
 

Books should be listened to, never just read... "Ad Alta Voce", the solidarity reading marathon organized by Coop Adriatica, will invite dozens of poets, writers and actors to read their own favourite books in unusual Venetian places on the 20th of October, offering a rare opportunity for a totally oral approach to books, a contact with paper without actually touching it, but only listening to the book being read aloud.
Among other participants in this literary marathon will be Mario Monicelli, Ferdinando Camon, Mauro Corona, Roberto Citran, Pino Roveredo, as well as the immigrant authors Tamara Jadrecic, Cristan Maksim, Jarmila Ockayova.

Books will be read aloud in the vaporettos, in retirement homes, in social centres, at the train station, in supermarkets, in central post offices...
Nor are young authors lacking: several have been chosen by the fifth edition of "Coop for words", the literary award promoted by Coop Adriatica and reserved for debutant or emerging writers who dedicate themselves not only to narrative, poetry and blogs, but also comic strips.
Noble, too, is the scope of the event: to promote the loan of books to housebound elderly people and to the disabled, by Coop volunteers and associates in Venice and its province.
In past editions, the marathon has received Silver Medals from the President of the Republic for being a cultural event of great thematic interest.
It enjoys the patronage of the Ministry for Cultural Patrimony and Activities, the Region of Veneto, the Province of Veneto and Venice University.
