Events, meetings and special guests. The countdown has begun for #fuoriluogo, the festival of culture, art, tasting and current events, which is ready to leave on Monday 4 November to make a stop, until 21, in the historic center of Biella.

Twenty-five appointments with characters from the world of literature, art and economics.

Great expectation for the return of Carlo Cottarelli, well-known economist director of the Observatory on Italian Public Accounts of the Catholic University of Milan, who is responsible for opening the calendar at 6.30 pm in the Città Studi auditorium on the theme: Fake news from overwork. How to recognize misinformation and not be fooled.

Another important appointment with the economy will be on Monday 11 with the trade unionist Marco Bentivogli, Fim-Cisl national secretary, on the subject of the redemption of work. The truth about technology and the fourth industrial revolution at the Don Minzoni theater.

Another great return, after ten years of absence from Biella, will be that of “Literary Boxing“, one of the most important cultural dissemination formats in which the public actively participates in the confrontation. On the “ring”, on November 7th in Città Studi, Antonio Serra, chief screenwriter of the Bonelli publisher, and Gabriella Genisi, writer and creator of the character of Commissioner Lolita Lobosco, will face off in “Challenge to Salvo Montalbano“.

The Opificiodellarte will host the art historian Giorgina Bertolino, curator of the exhibition “The worlds of Riccardo Gualino, collector and entrepreneur” at the Royal Museums of Turin and the essayist and playwright Luca Scarlini on Saturday 9 November. The stories will be accompanied by the performances of the Opificiodellarte dancers in a traveling show. On Sunday 10th Scarlini will also be at the Silvy Bassanese Art Gallery to reveal the world of the Marquise Luisa Casati, an eclectic and controversial noblewoman.

Among the many names that will arrive in the city there will also be: Antonio Scurati, winner of the Strega Prize 2019 with the book “M il figlio del Secolo“; the climatologist Luca Mercalli, Vanna Vinci, one of the most important Italian cartoonists, who will present the graphic novel “Io sono Maria Callas” at the Zaion gallery.

Guided tours to discover hidden places of the city with the art historian Alessandra Montanera will continue. This year the doors of Palazzo Cisterna and Palazzo Guagno Poma al Piazzo will open (Saturday 9 and Saturday 16).

The program also includes a wine tasting curated by Royal Nebbiolo Grape and with the Papillon club at the Fondazione Pistoletto Cittadellarte, the event “Biella district of taste?”
