Festival Asinara 2016

There was a time when, due to the presence of the maximum-security prison, Asinara was, literally, off limits. Now, that prison is closed and the naturalistic and cultural rebirth of the island begins. And one (great) proof of this rebirth is Pensieri e parole festival, which will take place in 2016 from August 18th to 21st.


Pensieri e parole 2016

How can we describe the festival? Imagine this: after walking along the paths and after discovering the nature of the island, you sit in front of a movie screen; once the film is finishes, you can chat with directors, actors, screenwriters; and then, a pleasant walk reading a book.

This is Pensieri e parole festival: a mix of screenings, art and independent films, debates, book presentations. Near the beautiful sea of Asinara Island.

How to get there

To get to Asinara Island, you just have to take a boat from Porto Torres and from Stintino, on the north coast of Sardinia. There are several info points in the ports of these two towns. The location of the festival is the prison of Fornelli, closed in 1998.
