From the 21st of October to the 9th of December, the cycle of meetings "Lezioni di Storia", organized by Editori Laterza, returns at the Petruzzelli Theater in Bari.
The theme "Romanzi nel Tempo" has been chosen to narrate the great events and the way of life of an era through the pages of novels that have determined the ways of thinking and feeling until today, leaving an indelible mark on the collective imagination.
