Alessandro Baricco for Ubud Writers & Readers Festival



Alessandro Baricco for Ubud Writers & Readers Festival

From humble beginnings in 2002, the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival has evolved into one of the world’s most celebrated literary and artistic events – an annual pilgrimage for lovers of literature and conversation.

Bringing together some of the world’s most powerful voices in a melting pot of artists, authors, thinkers and performers, the Festival is a platform for meaningful exchange and cross-cultural dialogue. A place where artists and audiences alike can discuss shared inspirations, ideas and concerns, the Festival transcends cultural and geographical borders to create a truly global community.

The Embassy of Italy and the Italian Cultural Institute, Jakarta participate in the annual event of Ubud Writers and Readers Festival, with the theme “Karma” by bringing the prominent writer Alessandro Baricco.

Born in 1958 in Turin, Alessandro Baricco is an author of essays, novels and theatrical texts translated and represented all over the world. He also wrote and directed the film Lesson 21.
