Intesa Sanpaolo for BookCity Milano

An event programme within BookCity Milano, organised by Intesa Sanpaolo, which has always supported the event with its valuable contribution: conferences, meetings and performances to bring vibrancy to the book city’s event schedule.


This Intesa Sanpaolo Employees’ Association initiative, in collaboration with Libromania, is designed to discover and recognise literary talents — because often great authors are revealed in the most unexpected of circumstances.

"1...2...TRASH!" (Stasera mi butto — Tonight, I’ll throw myself into it). Everything you need to know about waste

What happens to the mobile phones we no longer use? How long does a plastic bottle last? A conference-show which, using the winning book of the National Popular Science Prize as a basis, entitled “Trash. Tutto quello che dovreste sapere sui rifiuti” (“Trash. Everything you need to know about waste”), unfolds through stories, images and music, so that participants can learn what waste is and how it is managed today in the world, all the while having fun. Organised by Alessandra Viola and Piero Martin, authors of the book, and the Riciclato Circo Musical band.
