Taobuk, a celebration of literature of arts and thought.
From June 20th to June 24th, 2024, an international stage with a focus on current events, books, scientific debate, live performances, featuring prominent figures of our time.

What do we mean today by identity?
We will discover it together at Taobuk 2024, through the words of the great protagonists of our time, with a constant focus on the dynamics of today, from the individual microcosm to the macrocosm, up to the new frontiers of artificial intelligence.

Extraordinary personalities such as the 2023 Nobel prize for Literature Jon Fosse, Jonathan Safran Foer, Yasmina Reza, Alessandro Baricco and Marina Abramovic will discuss with us about the concept of “Identity”.
