Festival of Italian Literature in London 2019

FILL is a festival of literature and ideas which brings together writers and thinkers from different backgrounds to discuss literature, politics, migration, translation and contemporary topics in the inspiring setting of a treasured Victorian theatre, The Coronet Theatre, in the heart of Notting Hill, London.

Launched in 2017 in the aftermath of the Brexit referendum by an independent group of London-based Italian authors, journalists, translators and academics, FILL is now at its third edition with a very ambitious programme, featuring an impressive line-up of award-winning names, established writers and emerging ones, panel discussions, performances and special events.

The festival has a strong focus on community. It relies on a close partnership with the Italian Cultural Institute in London, which has supported the project since its first steps, and on a growing number of partners and supporters, without whose help we couldn’t make it possible.
