In the splendid ambience of the Casa Serodine, the traditional Libreria della Rondine in Ascona is organising a series of readings and performances under the motto "Traces of Life Ascona" about literary personalities whose lives led them to Ticino. We look into the cell of Friedrich Glauser, walk in the footsteps of Henry Jaeger, travel with Hannah Arendts toTegna and through her life, enjoy the poetic language of Giorgio Orelli, follow Alfonsina Storni to Argentina and return to the 1930s with Erich Maria Remarque. Contributors: Hildegard Keller on Arendt and Storni, Heinrich Thies on Remarque, Christa Baumerger and Hannes Binder on Glauser, Jakob Stein and Markus Jaeger on Henry Jaeger. Musical accompaniment: the Duo Mezza Bellezza.
The event is held in German.
