PARLANDO delivered or performed in a style suggestive of speech – used as a direction in music

Although we have had to postpone our plans for Parlando once again this year, we are looking forward  to introducing this new literary component to the 2022 Incontri in Terra di Siena season, to compliment the long-established musical programme. Each year we will be inviting a writer-in-residence to join us during the festival; their pieces will be posted online while a  printed version will become, over time, a handsomely-bound Incontri anthology. This residency will enrich our ‘Oltre la Musica’ offerings in the context of a historically literary landscape, vivdly brought to life through the writings of Iris Origo.

Watch this space for updates on this initiative; we thank you for your understanding.
