Villa le Cercle

Festival HQ

Since the 2016 edition, the Villa le Cercle has become the focal point of the festival, from which the program radiates. Both a place for literary meetings and activities for young audiences, the Villa is also the main information point for the festival. This is also where bookstores and publishers settle, in a warm and generous atmosphere.
