“Castelli in Giallo ” at Palazzo Gromo Losa

17/05/2019 - Events

Castelli in Giallo (Castles in Yellow)  is born, the noir literature festival that will find its home in the most fascinating Piedmontese historical residences.

The appointment with the first edition is for Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 May, when for a whole weekend the Piedmontese castles will become the location of literary meetings with national level yellowists, themed events, shows, readings, lessons for adults and children, all dedicated to the many fans of the genre.

In the collective imagination, castles have always been places of mystery that intertwine in their rooms history, experience and legends of the families who lived there, thus becoming elected places for the chosen theme.

The festival is organized by Amici di Castelli Aperti (Friends of open castles), the association that promotes the homonymous festival and which foresees the opening from April to October of over sixty historical residences in the Piedmont area.

The project, supported by the Piedmont Region, is made possible thanks to the support of the Piedmont Foundations Association which, working in synergy with local institutions, bodies and organizations, promotes and implements initiatives on the territory.

Castelli in Giallo will stop in Biella Sunday 26 May, in the elegant setting of Palazzo Gromo Losa.

Two meetings scheduled in the afternoon:

– at 4.00 pm the novelist Piergiorgio Pulixi and the writer Alessandra Selmi will discuss the figure of the “investigator”, who in the mystery novels embodies the narrative paradigm of the hero;

– at 6 pm, the ninety-year history of the legendary Giallo Mondadori series will be retraced in La fear ago ninety by Franco Forte – head of newsstand publications of the Segrate publishing house, and by the crime writer Massimo Tallone.

Admission to the meetings is free.
