Taormina Book Festival – 11th edition “The Metamorphosis”

Taormina, 17-21 June 2021




The fascinations of literature combined with the beauty of a unique place in the world. It is the perfect combination of Taobuk, an international literary festival that brings together the tradition of Taormina as the cosmopolitan capital of literature and arts, a refuge for eccentric and excellent personalities such as Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote, Picasso, Richard Strauss.

The Festival is conceived and directed by Antonella Ferrara.

Every year Taobuk chooses a theme around which the calendar of meetings takes shape with the help of authoritative writers, thinkers and artists, in a tight flow of ideas and novelties.

At the core of the festival there is literature seen through the point of view of international writers. Taobuk’s program, however, is also embellished with exhibitions, theatrical performances, dance pieces and film retrospectives shown in evocative locations: first and foremost the Ancient Theatre, along with the city’s palaces and major hotels.


This year’s theme is “The metamorphosis – everything changes”

Here is the 2021 programme www.taobuk.it/edizione-2021
