The Arena Literature Initiative is a meeting place for authors, representatives of the media and readers.
The Initiative is a voluntary group that has existed since 1978 with the purpose of organising readings by authors, open forums, lectures and discussions. It expands its literary programme by inviting authors, sometimes of international repute, to read and discuss their works. Arena also has the role of promoting literature by encouraging young authors to introduce themselves to a broader public.
