Event 12

Emilio del Río in conversation with Elsa González and Carlos Aganzo

Nature and the classics

Venue: Museo de la Siderurgia y la Minería de Castilla y León

From Horace to Lucretius, the classics have taught us that our relationship with Nature wholly determines the meaning and destiny of humankind. Emilio del Río, the great champion of Latin, has published books such as Latin lovers, Calamares a la Romana or Locos por los Clásicos. He holds, among many other distinctions, the National Prize of the Spanish Society of Classical Studies. He is also Director General of Madrid City Council Libraries, Archives and Museums.

He will be joined in an extraordinary natural setting by the journalist Elsa González and the journalist and writer Carlos Aganzo. Elsa González is member of the Board of Directors of Telemadrid and of the board of the Federation of Women Managers and Professionals (FEDEPE) and jury member of the Prince of Asturias Awards for Communication and Humanities. She was the President of the Federation of Associations of Journalists of Spain from April 2010 to April 2018. Aganzo, former director of El Norte de Castilla, is deputy director of the Vocento Foundation and author of numerous books of poems. His latest publication is a homage to Las ciudades de Machado (Machado’s cities).
