I Boreali Nordic Festival 2020

Fresh air from the North is coming to town

Teatro Franco Parenti
Via Pier Lombardo, 14

Some fresh "cultural" air is coming to Milano.  "The guilty party" of this climate change is the publishing house Iperborea, which in collaboration with Teatro Franco Parenti and with the patronage of the City of Milano, has organized for the sixth consecutive year the largest Italian festival entirely dedicated to the culture of Northern Europe: I Boreali - Nordic Festival.  The festival represents a unique and unrepeatable opportunity to immerse yourself in the most varied artistic fields of the Scandinavian cultural scene. But don't expect the traditional literary festival, even if there will be, of course, many talks with the best-selling authors of the Milanese publishing company such as Jan Brokken and Fredrik Sjöberg.


There will also be numerous excursus to other cultural and linguistic avant-garde #madeinnorth such as music, food&beverage and cinema. From the retrospective on the great Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier to the Nordic Brunch, from the 40-minute Swedish lesson to the neologisms introduced in Swedish by "the Greta Thunberg effect"; everyone will be able to enjoy the "nuance of the North" that suits them best. There's something for nighlife lovers too; in this case the appointment, as per tradition, is Friday with I Boreali Party, where the "hot" performance of Charlotte Adigéry, a Belgian musician but of Caribbean origins, is worth-listening; her electronics enriched with tribal echoes has been chosen by Paolo Sorrentino for the soundtrack of the HBO TV series The New Pope.
