Constança Saraiva and Mafalda Fernandes first launched the Conversas project in Lisbon in 2012; it has since expanded to numerous other cities. Three Conversadores (the name for speakers at meetings) share something for thirty minutes each. The dialogue flows naturally and informally, calling for improvised, genuine participation. The synergetic sharing of knowledge, opinions and human experiences on such apparently unrelated themes somehow works wonderfully.
Conversas Firenze happens every Wednesday at 6.30pm at L'appartamento, via dei Giraldi, 11, Florence.
Entrance is free and open to everyone. Conversations will be in English or Italian when necessary. Conversas was launched in Florence by Silvio Palladino and Andrea Paglia.
