5th floor - Young Theatre Workshop
Manuel Vázquez Montalbán, Andrea Camilleri and Jean-Claude Izzo laid the foundations of a crime fiction genre which many believe has features in common throughout the Mediterranean region.

Free entrance

A crossroads for people and ideas down the millennia, a place receptive to difference, to the new and to the questioning of received ideas, the Mediterranean basin has given us collaborations and conflicts, great civilizations and the world’s three major monotheistic religions. It was here the Greek, Roman and Egyptian civilizations were born and flourished, and it was in the Mediterranean that the ideas and ideals of contemporary Western culture took shape in the fertile ground of the ports and cities where people and ideas interacted for centuries. How can we, at the dawn of the 21st century, continue to draw on this rich heritage?

Mediterranean noir.
Manuel Vázquez Montalbán, Andrea Camilleri and Jean-Claude Izzo laid the foundations of a crime fiction genre which many believe has features in common throughout the Mediterranean region. Have their successors maintained these common threads? Does the contemporary Greek detective novel have more in common with its counterparts in southern France or Turkey than with Central or North European noir?
