The subject is intended in its broadest sense and includes all possible traces of an artistic, literary, historical, philosophical, allegorical and introspective nature.”

A maximum of 230 readers are expected to participate: interested parties must fill out the appropriate registration form and indicate the book chosen from among those indicated in the specified regulation, in which a passage can be read for a maximum of six minutes.
