(AGR) The Treccani Festival of the Italian Language, now in its sixth edition, will be held for the first time in Rome on May 27 and 28 and June 9, 10 and 11. A stage that follows that of Lecce from May 5 to 7 and anticipates the final in Lecco from September 21 to 24. The Treccani Festival, the first festival in our country entirely dedicated to the Italian language, is the project conceived by Treccani Cultura to present the most relevant themes of Treccani’s constant research on the Italian language, paying special attention to the value of words such as half. expression and reasoning, sharing and respectful confrontation between the different positions.
At the center of this edition, dedicated to the memory of the famous scholar, linguist and philologist Luca Serianni, who died in July of last year, will be the word Amazement, a term used to describe the sensation that follows an unusual event, the effect of amazement. that can lead us to an awakening. Its different nuances will be explored through a multidisciplinary approach capable of ranging from philosophy to physics, from geopolitics to artificial intelligence, from literature to art history and cinema; but Astonishment will be, above all, a word to access the field of linguistic research, in a world in which the proliferation of new forms of language, the transformation of traditional syntactic structures and the same new lexical creations, many times destined for the ephemeral life and circulation, can only amaze.
The Roman stage of the Festival is organized under the patronage of Roma Capitale, in collaboration with the Municipality of Rome VIII and Roma Tre University, with the organizational support of Zètema Progetto Cultura, with the support of Istituzione Biblioteche di Roma, Sacher, Dopolavoro Matematico , with the contribution of Treccani Reti and the media association of Rai Cultura and Rai Radio 3.
