the full program

What? Some of the most extraordinary examples in recent audio production, radio and podcasts from around the world, collective stories and intimate tales, documentary and fiction, tradition and experimentation. How will we listen to them? Accompanied by subtitles, in Italian and English. All of them, although they might come from diverse traditions, are produced by authors with the ability to tell a tale properly, to share experiences and to give us back the desire to listen to a story.

LUCIA is not only radio at the movies but also lectures, performances, podcasts live, workshops for aspiring and professional podcasters, and labs for kids.

Some of Lucia’s guests: Eleonor McDowall, Third Coast Festival, Katharina Smets, Audiocollectief Schik, Fallon Mayanja, Jonathan Zenti, Daria Corrias, Andrea Borgnino, Ariana Martinez, Mauro Pescio, Rodolfo Sacchettini, Matteo Bennici.
