Born from a need

LiberFestival was born in 2017, when a group of young people from Altamura, fed up with the too modest cultural activity of their city, feel the need to do something. Thinking of a way to make one’s territory attentive to the cultural needs of the youth community, the idea arrives of organizing an event dedicated to readers and to reading, able to embrace the reality of young people and reading. Since then LiberFestival has grown more and more and has reached its fifth edition, meeting intergenerational and territorial needs.

Altamura and his books are waiting for you on January 5th! In the meantime, you could take a look at the next books coming out in January 2023.
