wed 20:30 (75’)
Vivliotropio Book Club hosts on Rialto’s stage renowned Greek novelist Zyranna Zateli, who has created over the course of her literary career a unique, timeless and uncategorized genre.
She has constructed a literary universe of her own, a dreamful world like “a dream within a dream”, as E.A.Poe said, carrying the reader to its whirlpool, leaving a nostalgic sense with a purple-like shade and a tobacco flavour that seems drawn from another era.
From Rialto’s stage, Zyranna Zatelli will introduce the audience to these labyrinthine magical places of her very own world, “visible as if invisible”.
