FORMULA PAROLA is a multidisciplinary festival of words for citizens of the southern area of Basilicata, especially for families and schools of all kinds and levels. Words will be associated with three other concepts: games, images and responsibility. We are being faced with an increasingly poor, flat Italian language, and working with words means investigating the way we are, the way we think and the way we see things, what we have been and what we are becoming. Language is risking becoming impoverished because we are in too much of a hurry. We see the need to take some time out to get back together with the people who live in this area and anyone who wants to take part in the programme, and to reflect on the changes that are taking place.

Reading needs time to be conquered, and involves both schools and families. It is a territory to be explored and inhabited, a meeting place for different kinds of reader, beginners and experts alike. During the workshop, we will attempt to understand how to read aloud, how to play with books, how to talk about them and discover them together, respecting the amount of time both book and reader need, and playing together.
