A cosmic journey to the heart of Alta Rocca

Organized by the AltaLeghje association, the “Lire le Monde” festival, under the theme of space exploration, promises its most attractive edition in 2024. From Altagen to Serra di Scopamena, four cities become for five days a gateway to a fascinating world where literature, art and astronomy meet.

From dusk, festival-goers can enjoy movie nights under the stars, featuring captivating films such as “astronomer” And The Moon's StarsBut this is just the beginning. Encounters with renowned authors such as Jérôme Ferrari and Éric Orsena, as well as rich exchanges with renowned scientists such as Yael Nazi, David Elbaz and Nathalie Cabrol, invite us to explore the mysteries of the galaxies and ask ourselves the existential question: Do we exist? Are we alone in the universe?

Art lovers will not be left out of the exhibitions they can discover: from Machi Xenakis to Lisa Blumen, each space becomes a window open to imagination and beauty. The media space of the Sainte Lucie de Talano Library welcomes Machi Xenakis and Francesca Lantieri, while the Alta Rocca dei Levi Museum displays the works of Lisa Blumen. For those looking for sounds and rhythms, don’t miss the musical performance “Atom to Cosmos”, an immersive audiovisual experience by Orso, Pasqua Pancrazi and Céline Vincent.
