33rd Turin International Book Fair

From 14 to 18 May 2020, five days to discuss and reflect on books and reading.

The Turin International Book Fair will be held, once again, from Thursday 14 to Monday 18 May 2020 in three pavilions: Lingotto Fiere, Oval and Centro Congressi. 

More than 2,000 writers, philosophers, scientists, artists, economists and contemporary thinkers will discuss books and reading, questioning the consequences of human presence on the planet: this is what the 33rd edition of the Book Fair calls for.

Altre forme di vita (Other forms of life) is the theme chosen this year. A stimulus to reflect on the role of human physiognomy in the years to come, a decade away from the goals set by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The climate crisis, sustainability, the protection of biodiversity, technological innovation, and the new social, economic and political models needed to embrace the 21st century with dignity are intertwined with literature, cinema, theatre and the great art of storytelling. 

The Compagnia di San Paolo Foundation supports the event and contributes to setting up a large workshop at the Book Fair, specifically for the new generations, schools, families and teachers.

This year, this areawill be enlarged to cover the entire Pavilion 2 of the Lingotto and will have as its theme the United Nations 2030 Agenda: the 17 goals that governments – together with institutions, companies, schools and all citizens – are committed to achieving over the next decade, working for peace, the environment, social justice and education. 

The Book Fair asked publishers to suggest books that address the 17 goals. In the last few weeks, together with the Compagnia di San Paolo Foundation, the SalTo Diventi call for proposal was launched in the areas concerned to promote activities linked to these goals, and more than 80 institutions, including museums, associations, foundations and libraries, have responded.

The event, presented on 18 February, was attended by Anna Maria Poggi of the Management Committee of Compagnia di San Paolo.
