About the trade show
In figures: five pavilions, 51,000 square metres of exhibition area, 23 conference rooms, over 1,400 publishers, 600 of which international, 800 conferences, 2,000 speakers, more than 2,000 accredited journalists and 304,000 visitors in five days.
The appointment with the Fair is in May every year at Lingotto in Turin: the former Fiat plant with the spiral ramp and roof-top track, the masterpiece of industrial architecture designed between 1915 and 1922 by Giacomo Mattè Trucco, admired by Le Corbusier and since 1985 transformed by Renzo Piano into an exhibition and commercial centre.
The Fair of Turin is a lively international festival of culture. Almost one thousand conferences, dates, debates and shows. Nobel Prize winners, writers, scientists, philosophers, historians, journalists, artists and musicians. The most acute minds in the contemporary world, the big questions to understand the challenges of the society we live in.
The Fair of Turin is also an important international space dedicated to the book trade: publishers, booksellers, librarians, teachers, agents and translators meet at the International Book Forum to trade publishing and translation rights.
Each year, the Fair hosts the culture of a different country, present with its authors and publishers, exhibitions, shows, artists, viewpoints and in-depth analysis: over the years Catalonia, Holland, Switzerland, Canada, Greece, Brazil, Portugal and Lithuania have been in the limelight.
Writers from emerging countries and migrant authors who choose to express themselves in the major international languages or in the languages of the countries of arrival give a snapshot of a globalised planet where books and literature return to the centre of new forms of identity and sense of belonging.
