Policromia - Poetry, Music, Art

Due to the coronavirus pandemic our plans for Policromia 2020 are currently in flux.  We are monitoring the national and international situation and we will continue to celebrate poetry and translation in Siena in some way June 4-7, 2020. Please stay tuned or contact us for more information.


In 2020 we will be celebrating our third annual Policromia Festival, a local and international festival centered on poetry and translation and committed to building young audiences and promoting deaf culture. Our venues are woven into the texture and fabric of the city of Siena, from the most striking halls, museums, and galleries to artisan workshops, bars, and commercial spaces. Readings are frequently supplemented by musical performances and aperitifs.
