What is art? Coming soon Tell me about her, a podcast to answer that question

A new podcast about art is on the way: it is titled "Tell me about her," is edited by critic Pietro Gaglianò, and in each episode guests will try to answer the question of what art is.

A new podcast about art starts June 10: it is titled Parlami di Lei, is curated by critic Pietro Gaglianò and is produced by Libreria Brac of Florence in collaboration with Scripta Festival and Radio Papesse. Parlami di Lei is a series of six episodes, featuring the voices of six personalities from the art world: art critic Emanuela De Cecco, artist Flavio Favelli, director and actress Chiara Lagani, philosopher Nicolas Martino, musician and artist Roberto Paci Dalò, and artist and publisher Giovanna Silva. To all of them Pietro Gaglianò asks a single question, “Tell me about her.” A question about art, its presence, silence, and the noise it makes.

The podcast can be heard on Spotify, Spreaker, Apple Podcasts, ITunes and wherever you search for your podcasts. The first episode, to be released on June 10, features the words of Nicolas Martino; Giovanna Silva follows on June 17 and Flavio Favelli on June 24; on July 1 it is Emanuela De Cecco’s turn, on the 8th Chiara Lagani’s and the last release is with Roberto Paci Dalò on July 15.
