Marina Cafè Noir
Marina Cafè Noir – Festival of Applied Literatures, the first literary Festival in Sardinia – in terms of time, began in Cagliari back in 2003, in the historical neighbourhood called Marina, by the initiative of a group of readers and cultural activists, who, at a later time, set up the cultural association called Chourmo.
MCN comes from the will to organize a Festival meant as a popular festival of shared knowledges, using stories as its first ingredient, to be tailored and brought back to the streets, squares, cafés, shops, workshops and, more in general, to the people.
It is a Festival more focused on stories and authors rather than on literary phenomena or bestsellers, always with its own special formula, a mixture of artistic languages starting from literature: the Festival framework is made of original, brand new performances and readings, bringing on stage selected books and stories.
To complete its thematic framework, MCN is also made of debates, meetings, screenings, concerts, shows, workshops, exhibits, art installations and outdoor cooking, in a happy atmosphere for people of any age and place of origin, where culture and a local festival come together.
It is a committed, street, popular and free festival, aiming to show how culture and literature are not distant from daily life and that a festival can and has to be part of them.
