25.07.2012 - 29.07.2012
The eighth edition of FestambienteSud, the festival sponsored by Italy’s Environmental League, runs from July 25 to 29 in Monte Sant’Angelo in Southern Italy.
The theme this year is “Certainly It’s Not the Mayans’ Fault.” A great festival is in store with the presence of journalists, scientists, and writers animating the review “Theatre of Ideas”. Famous personages including Gian Antonio Stella, Andrea Segré and Patrizio Roversi, Marco Travaglio and Isabella Ferrari, will take turns in lending their perspectives on the past, present and future of Italy. Journalist Pino Aprile and politician Federico Rampini will also debut their latest productions at the base of Monte Sant’Angelo Castle – Aprile will open his play “Deep South” (July 22) while Rampini will stage some of the scenes from his best-selling work “Extreme East” (July 15).
On July 26, writer Gian Antonio Stella’s “Vandals: The Assault of Italy’s Beauty” will go on show. July 27 in particolar will be dedicated to nature with “Waterfront: Dialogue on the Acqua,” a conference and play in which a wandering traveler (Patrizio Roversi) and a man of science (Andrea Segrè) bump into each other and debate on the subject of water. Amidst a mash of images and videos they undertake a virtual voyage through rivers, lakes and over and under the earth.
The Theatre of Ideas closes on July 28, when Marco Travaglio describes his version of the future of Italy in “Total Anesthesia”.
