On Friday 28th February 2020, at 6 pm, our Institute will host the launch of the book by Francesca Bocca-Aldaqre and Pietrangelo Buttafuoco ‘Sotto il suo passo nascono i fiori. Goethe e l’Islam’, edited by La nave di Teseo, Milan 2019. The Germanist Simona Manetti Ignesti and Milva Segato, of the Regional School Office in Tuscany, will discuss with the authors the elements detectable inside his letters and disseminated into the archives of the approaching of Johann Wolfgang Goethe towards the Eastern world and especially towards the Islamic Eastern world, but in a fruitful and vital connection with the Western philosophy and spirituality. It will also be the occasion to debate on what Islam is nowadays in Italy and in Europe. Download here for more details.
