The body I live in: Autobiographical writing workshop with Rossana Campo

The body I live in is a creative writing workshop in which everyone is invited to find inspiration to write in their own bodies and life experiences. Giving voice to the body can help us find our own truth and discover our unique superpower: in this brief but intensive class, Rossana Campo will guide you on a journey of self-discovery through the work of writers who have been able to create uniquely powerful stories from their own autobiography, such as Guadalupe Nettel, Clarice Lispector, Olivia Laing, and many others. Get ready to meet yourself on the inside and… write about it. You’ll just need a pen and a piece of paper.

The workshop will be in Italian and is open to any Italian speaker (level C1 suggested).

Running time: 150 minutes.

The maximum number of participants is 15.


This event is organized in partnership with Londra Scrive ( and Inspire the Mind (
