Six evenings in the evocative setting of Villa Pallavicini to meet the protagonists of culture, sport and art: at the center the themes of hope, freedom, the challenges of Europe but also the memory of Lucio Dalla, in the tenth anniversary of his death.
After the good result of the first edition of 2021, LIBeRI, the literary review organized in the “Villaggio della Speranza” Park of Villa Pallavicini, is back from 15 June to 21 July as part of the Bologna Estate review. The “Citadel of Charity”, as Cardinal Zuppi defined it, will therefore return to take on the role of “Citadel of sport, art and culture” told through the mouths of the protagonists in six evenings full of emotions and suggestions.

The debut however, it is entrusted to another anniversary, one of those really dear to Italians of all ages, of those who have experienced it live and of those who know its history and emotions: the 1982 World Cup in Spain, the “mundial” won by Italy 40 years ago. To talk about it and retrace its suggestions on the debut evening of LIBeRi, Wednesday 15 June, will be Matteo Marani, Sky Sport journalist and President of the Coverciano Football Museumbut above all a great narrator of the emotions of football, e Giovanni Galli, former Azzurri goalkeeper and 1982 world champion.
