STORIÆ Festival returns to Ischia – archaeology and storytelling

June 1 - June 9

Rendezvous with the STORIÆ Festival June 1-9 with guests, presentations, books and tours: the event is organized by CEiC

Ischia and archaeology, Ischia and the thousands of extraordinary stories that unfold on its territory. From the dawn of time. Those of which it was the scene, the first Greek colony in the West, and those it loves to tell, because in June-the month of major events, between the Ischia International Prize for Journalism and the Ischia Film Festival-the island becomes a privileged stage. And from June 1 to 9, an event that is now firmly established in the cultural calendar of the summer season returns to Ischia: the festival “HISTORIÆ – archaeology and narratives.”, with base of operations at the Mill Tower and a full program of lectures, book presentations, panel discussions, exhibitions, guided tours, interactive workshops, and exciting performances (details are at www.festival-storiae.it).

Organized by CEiC – Centro Etnografico Campano/Institute for Historical and Anthropological Studies, the event is aimed at the people of story lovers: aren’t we all, after all?

The theme of this edition is “The Archives of Time,” or-as summarized by archaeologist Alessandra Vuoso, creator of the festival-“the bridge that connects eras and cultures.”

Sections of the festival

The program is very rich and consists of several sections: the “Anniversaries” celebrate major historical events such as the Normandy landings and the centenary of Franco Basaglia’s birth; the “Charta Canta” presents historical publishing works and biographies with meetings with authors; for the “Spaces of History” here are guided tours of historical sites and archaeological excavations, such as the Archaeological Museum of Pithecusae, the underwater excavations of Aenaria And the paths of the island.

Listening to the voices of history

Voices of History” combines music, readings and performances: highly anticipated is the concert by Carlo Faiello and the closing performance with Kristiina Ehin and Silver Sepp. And for those who like to get involved, there are the “STORIÆ Workshops,” which offer creative and educational activities for youngsters through the evocative power of words and images. Guests featured in the featured events include Vincenzo Sbrizzi, journalist and author, Francesco Dandolo, professor of Economic History of Migration, and Elena Ringoli, cultural mediator: on the opening date they will talk about immigration in the talk “People from the Sea.” On June 3, Paolo Giulierini, archaeologist and former director of the MANN, will guide the public to discover the ancient Italic peoples in a lecture entitled “Italy Before Rome.”
