Sunday, October 16th, 2022 at 2:30 p.m. Cleveland Park Library, 3310 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington, DC 20008. RSVP here. On the occasion of the 22nd edition of the Week of Italian Language in the World dedicated to l’Italiano e i Giovani, Kairos Italy Theater presents an interactive event based on the experience of Versetto Libero.

Founded in 2014, Versetto Libero is a program that brings together American poets with Italian artists through sessions that observe translations and recitals of poems written by American poets and translated by Italian artists. In this special session, the audience will work on translating in Italian and in the language of the youngsters’ poems originally conceived in their dialect. The participants are asked to bring a poem or a story in the dialect of their origins.

During the event participants will be paired together and partake in a translation exercise involving dialect, Italian, and English. After the activity, the participants will bring the poems and stories together, exhibiting their work in an oral recital.

This is a free, family friendly event (children 7 years old and up are welcome!)
