Centro internazionale di studi Primo Levi

Il Centro internazionale di studi Primo Levi promuove la conoscenza di Primo Levi, testimone di Auschwitz, scrittore fra i più noti dell’Italia contemporanea, chimico e intellettuale sempre attento alle domande delle nuove generazioni. In questo si rivolge sia ai cultori di discipline umanistiche e scientifiche, sia al vasto pubblico di chi, fra i giovani e i meno giovani, può apprezzare la sua opera, il suo pensiero e la sua personalità.

Il Centro ha sede a Torino, la città dove Primo Levi è vissuto dal 1919 al 1987, e si propone di raccogliere le edizioni delle sue opere, le numerose traduzioni pubblicate in tutto il mondo, la bibliografia critica, ogni forma di documentazione scritta e audiovisiva sulla sua figura e sulla ricezione dell'opera. Intende inoltre offrire un sostegno alle ricerche degli studiosi e realizzare proprie iniziative, quali la Lezione Primo Levi promossa nell'autunno di ogni anno, per alimentare il dibattito sui temi più cari allo scrittore torinese.

Il Centro è un'associazione costituita nell'aprile del 2008, di cui sono soci fondatori la Regione Piemonte, la Città e la Provincia di Torino, la Compagnia di San Paolo, la Comunità ebraica di Torino, la Fondazione per il libro, la cultura e la musica, la famiglia di Primo Levi.

 

Centro Studi Vasily Grossman

Il Centro Studi Vasilij Grossman opera a Torino dal 2006, in seguito alle iniziative avviate in occasione del centenario della nascita del romanziere russo V. Grossman Berdicev, 1905 – Mosca, 1964), con una mostra ed un convegno dedicati al suo romanzo maggiore: “Vita e destino”.

In seguito la mostra retrospettiva è stata esposta – oltre che in numerose città italiane – anche in Russia, Usa, Francia, Israele, Argentina, Inghilterra e Lussemburgo, mentre numerose iniziative culturali (come i tre convegni internazionali svoltisi nel 2006 e nel 2009 a Torino e nel 2014 a Mosca) ed editoriali hanno consentito di stabilizzare una rete di relazioni scientifiche e culturali con istituzioni e studiosi di diverse parti del mondo. Inoltre il Centro ha sviluppato un importante centro di documentazione on-line, con oltre 30.000 records ed in fase di ulteriore sviluppo (dc.grossmanweb.eu).

Il Centro Studi torinese (guidato da un Comitato direttivo e con un vasto Comitato scientifico internazionale) si pone oggi come l’unica realtà specificamente dedicata a V. Grossman e impegnata a diffonderne l’opera ed i valori a livello internazionale.
