(ANSA) – CATANZARO, MAY 19 – Rubbettino takes part in the XXXV Turin International Book Fair with a “manifesto stand”. “The visual, developed by the creative team of the publishing house – says a press release – wants to symbolize the fragmentation of the world we are living in, in which the optimism of globalization has given way to the desire for power of distinct identities that conflict between them, and unfortunately not only on a cultural level. A stand that however also wants to reaffirm that culture can never be declined in the singular but arises from the synthesis of polycentric and multifaceted visions of the world and of reality”.
