Incroci di Civiltà

14th edition  3-6 November 2021

The 14th edition of Incroci di Civiltà Festival returns from November 3-6 2021, drawing together a wide range of authors for an in-person experience that will allow the audience to participate live in the discussions.

As we are attempting to return to physical events for this year’s Literary Festival in order to provide a top-notch experience for all participants by welcoming writers from all over the world, we are also committed to running COVID safe events, and will therefore implement safety measures, in accordance with government guidelines and recommendations.

We are closely monitoring COVID 19 updates.

More detailed information about our programme, venue locations, event bookings, and conditions of entry will be provided as soon as the pandemic situation allows.

Approaching the Crossroad 6 – 26 October

Approaching the Crossroad

Verso Incroci/Approaching the Crossroad includes a series of events that serve as a prelude to the Festival. Please note that there are a limited number of places at each event. All bookings are subject to availability

Become a Festival Volunteer!

We are currently accepting applications for filling new volunteer roles. This year, from November 3-6, Incroci di Civiltà/Civilizations at a Crossroad Festival celebrates its 14th Anniversary as one of the leading and most successful Literature Festivals in Venice by welcoming the greatest international contemporary authors to the city.

Would you like to be more than just a spectator? Become a volunteer! Volunteering at the Festival is a perfect way to become directly involved in the management and organization of events. Volunteers will also get the ideal chance to become acquainted with the international context of literary culture and meet publishing industry figures.

University students working as volunteers will have the opportunity to request the acknowledgement of their working activity as a curricular internship with its related ECTS. The request must be presented to the Internship Supervisor or the Didactic College of the student’s Degree Program and approved by either one or the other in advance.

To become a volunteer, fill out the Volunteer Application [ITA] and mail it together with your CV to:  volontari@incrocidicivilta.org
Please note that all volunteer placements are dependent upon the submission of the Volunteer Application that has to be filled out completely and accurately.

All selected applicants must be willing to commit for the entire volunteering period.
