"The Greatest Invention: A History of the World in Nine Mysterious Scripts"

By Silvia Ferrara

Friends of the CCCB

Exclusive for Friends of the CCCB

Antonio Lozano proposes us to read an informative essay about one of the most important creations of the human being, writing, which arose in different places and different times, independently and starting from scratch.

Silvia Ferrara, the author, who will participate in the next edition of the Kosmopolis festival, proposes us a code-cracking tour around the globe, The Greatest Invention chronicles a previously uncharted journey, one filled with past flashes of brilliance, present-day scientific research, and a faint, fleeting glimpse of writing’s future.

It will be possible to follow the reading in the English translation by Todd Portnowitz.

Moderators: Antonio Lozano

This activity is part of Klub de lectura 2023/2024, Kosmopolis
