Reading in the Mountains of Valtellina

To celebrate the cultural alpin patrimony in occasion of the International Mountain Day
Reading in the Mountains of Valtellina - With the aim of celebrating the cultural inheritance in occasion of the International Day of the Mountain

With the aim of celebrating the cultural inheritance in occasion of the International Day of the Mountain in 11 December, the Convention of the Alps organizes the festival Reading in the Mountains(5-11 December) where stakeholders, schools, libraries and also private companies and interested organizations are invited to organize events which celebrate the Alpine readings. There are several ways to do it: a public reading followed by the presence of a local author, the presentation of a book in reference with the region or any other creative moment.

The idea of the Reading in the Mountains festival goes beyond any included event: it is a way of connecting people that are normally physically distant. In the last edition, book lovers and authors, mountain lovers and artists from all parts of the Alps and not only have confronted each other in several topics regarding the signification, the impact and the objectives of the mountain literature.
