Well, it was a big surprise for us getting invited to Modena / carpi out of the blue last year. We came there before when we went on our Italian tour in 2007. The promoter was obviously very happy with our show so he invited us again to the Philosophy Festival held in Carpi / Modena that year.
We had short visits at readings but not much time on the day we arrived and actually were super hungry for good italian food after arriving. The city was crowded with tents and rooms where you could spot people like Zygmunt Bauman, Enrico Ghezzi, Peter Sloterdijk, Marino Niola and many more. Nice delighting, deep thinking invitation!
