CANCELLED - Paolo Maurensig -  Scacchi, storie e letteratura

*** We regret to inform that, due to unforeseen circumstances the event has been cancelled ***



Sixty-four squares. Thirty-two pieces. And an almost infinite number of ways to combine them. No two games of chess are the same. Each is a unique challenge, played on that magical square that is the chessboard: almost a world outside of this world.

Paolo Maurensig, author of the literary success The Lüneburg Variation and of novels like Canone Inverso and Teoria delle ombre, will be our guest at the Institute to talk about literature and chess, the most complex and enigmatic game invented by man, almost a mirror of life itself: from the opening move to checkmate.
