The panel is dedicated to the relationship between sport and Italian literature. How is sport portrayed in Italian literature? How does it function within a literary work? Is sport employed only as metaphors and to add a touch of color, or does it have deeper meanings? What can it tell us about an author? Papers on literary and artistic aspects of sport in journalism or various media, as well as on sport and the visual arts, cinema, etc., are welcome.
