Record book fair: a start to normality?

Record book fair

The XXIII International Book Fair of Turin took place last weekend, after two years of absence from the Piedmontese capital also, and above all, due to the health emergency that did not allow the holding of indoor events.

And it was a festival of records, despite the limitations, which brought well over 150 thousand people to visit the event dedicated to fiction, with many events, guests and meetings of all kinds, which have ensured that the edition of this year would turn out to be the one with the highest number of visitors ever, surpassing that of 2019.

Thanks to the introduction of the Green Pass, it is possible to organize once again very impressive events such as that of the Salone, being able to guarantee a protection of the health of the individuals participating in it. Furthermore, in collaboration with the Italian Red Cross, a hub of quick pads was set up in the Galleria of the Lingotto Shopping Center, at a discounted price for holders of an event ticket, with the immediate release of the green certification, giving the possibility to anyone wishing to participate in total safety.

The excitement for the success of the show is also and above all in the words of the one who directed the show, namely Nicola Lagioia, who on his personal Facebook profile has wrote that he had long dreamed of an edition of the Salone of this magnitude, but that he would never have expected such a participatory direction. But it is his subsequent words that hit the mark:

"An explosion of people happy to meet again after a long time, to hug each other, to be together. It is a very strong sign for the return to normalcy. "

"Normality" is a word that we have hardly spoken in these two years, a state of mind that we have struggled to find due to something that is much bigger than us and that has dominated our daily life , making some more, some less, fragile and vulnerable. What we saw at the Book Fair is, perhaps, the beginning of a rebirth for everything related to events, meetings and everything related to a pure form of entertainment and even just aggregation.

Also according to Lagioia, the event is probably the first of an international scope of this type to take place in the post-pandemic (or at least since the introduction of vaccines) and hopes that Italy can be an example for what will happen in the future. to the organization of festivals and events of such great importance.

"We are together again, until a few days ago it did not seem possible"

And, perhaps, in our hearts, we hope not separate us more.
