 The 2024 edition of the Warsaw International Book Fair will be held at the Palace of Culture and Science and the adjacent Parade Square on May 23-26, with Italy as the Guest of Honour.

In anticipation of this event, the Memorandum of Understanding was signed at the Italian Embassy in Warsaw on 16 January 2024. During the ceremony, Italy was represented by H.E. Luca Franchetti Pardo, Italian Ambassador to Poland, and Polish representation was headed by Jacek Oryl, the Director of Warsaw International Book Fair, and Waldemar Michalski, the President of History and Culture Foundation, the organizer of the Fair.

Italian programme will be the highlight of this year’s Fair, featuring a rich and diverse agenda of book presentations and meetings with authors and publishing industry actors. It will be an excellent opportunity to promote Italian publishers and their work in Poland. “The Warsaw International Book Fair, presenting Italy as the Guest of Honour, is an extraordinary opportunity for Italian publishers to promote their offer to a population of 40 million people many of whom, as I have witnessed more than once, are deeply and genuinely interested in Italian culture in its many forms and aspects, and embrace it with enthusiasm”, said Ambassador Luca Franchetti Pardo.
