The Wild Swimming movement was born in Great Britain about thirty years ago, but its roots are as old as human history. Basically, it defends the pleasure and the right to dive and swim in free and hidden waters, rediscovering the pleasure of exploring, of going up a river, of experiencing a little adventure. We talk about this with two swimmer-writers: Michele Tameni, author of the guide Wild Swimming Italia (Idea Montagna 2016), and Valentina Fortichiari with her book La cerimonia del nuoto (Bompiani, 2018) first a competitive swimmer then a teacher and finally a water traveller who has relied her fantasies on the pen.

Introduced by Lorenza Pizzinelli, journalist. Emanuela Gamberoni, professor of Geography at the University of Verona and vice president of AIIG-Veneto, takes part in the meeting.

She made her debut in fiction with the novel “Lezione di nuoto ” Colette e Bertrand, estate 1920 (Guanda 2009) and since then she has always occupied her own ‘aquatic niche’: in this regard we mention the novel “Leonardo e l’acqua” “La cerimonia del nuoto” (Sedizioni 2015), “La cerimonia del nuoto, racconti” (Bompiani 2018). 
Michele Tameni BIOGRAPHY
He lives at the foot of the Alps not far from Lake Garda where he works as a Software Engineer.
His passion for mountains, travel and photography has resulted in the creation of books and reports about the wild and uncontaminated places he has always been looking for. With the book “Wild Swimming Italia” (Idea Montagna 2016) he wanted to propose an unusual way of experiencing the discovery of new territories.
