The ninth edition theme of the international literature festival ChiassoLetteraria is the inescapable plot between collective History, individual stories of characters and authors, their narratives and accounts. How can History be told through literature? What role can be assigned to literature in dealing with elements of the past, even when they’re uncomfortable? What stories can still be told?
The Festival’s visual identity reflects the duality between the concept of history and story. A diagonal that separates, but at the same time approaches, becomes the recurring element used on logos, images, typography, exhibition design and various communication tools.
