The Holden School

The Festival has always crossed the arts, becoming a creative open-air workshop.
Many activities, workshops, laboratories, exhibitions and installations enrich the kaleidoscopic universe of Taobuk.

"Libertà va cercando..." : Looking for freedom in Literature

WISELY GUIDED BY THE TEACHERS OF THE HOLDEN SCHOOL – FOUNDED BY THE WRITER ALESSANDRO BARICCO – A WORKSHOP DEDICATED TO THE REVOLUTION THAT CAN ARISE FROM WRITING AND THE POTENTIAL OF LITERATURE.

The lessons will be divided into two parts: in the morning with Eleonora Lombardo, and in the afternoon with Evelina Santangelo, exploring from different angles the techniques that every good author must master in order to transport himself and his readers to other universes ruled by laws different from those that guide the world. The attendees will be challenged to leave for a journey where everything is possible, as only can happen between pages.

The workshop will be held in one of the most charming places in the city: Casa Cuseni, the house that hosted Lord Bertrand Russell, Tennessee Williams, David Herbert Lawrence, Ezra Pound. The place where Greta Garbo’s mirror still hangs, where there is the desk on which Roald Dahl wrote The Chocolate Factory and where the Chanel logo was perhaps conceived. The house whose esoteric garden was designed by Sir Frank Brangwyn.Casa Cuseni,
