An edition with the theme "Wild Hearts" (Cuori Selvaggi)

This year's Turin International Book Fair has the theme "Wild Hearts", referring to the courage required to look to the future in these difficult times.

The conference by the writer Amitav Ghosh on the themes of the environment and health marks the opening of the fair on Thursday 19 May, in collaboration with the publishing house Neri Pozza. 

The fair is expanding and new areas are being created

Following the success of its previous edition, the Turin International Book Fair is expanding and now has 110,000 sqm of exhibition space.

Among the new features this year is a new area called the Publishing Wood (Bosco degli Edizioni) created by Aboca Edizioni. This 200 square metre amphitheatre houses over 1000 trees, plants and shrubs to immerse visitors in presentations and debates on major environmental issues.
