An Italian author is coming to England for the first time, for an event in Congleton this week.

Author Stefano Santachiara is visiting to witness a world premiere art performance in Congleton inspired by a book of his.

Wednesday evening will see a free performance by local artists based on the Italian's 2018 book Loving Lou Salomé.

The performance has been developed and performed by Crewe-based poetry and music duo, Fall in Green, and will take place in Congleton Library on the evening of Wednesday August 3.

The event is called Lou Salomé: Empathy with Daisies and is an eclectic mix of music and poetry inspired by the life of 19th century pioneering female psychoanalyst, Lou Andreas-Salomé.

Salomé's fascinating life includes relationships with some of the 19th centuries notable intellectuals and artists, including Friedrich Nietzsche, Paul Rée, Rainer Maria Rilke and Sigmund Freud.

The second half of the evening, Solo Salomé, opens up the floor to local poets and performers for an entertaining open-mic celebration.

A ticket for the free performance can be booked in advance at Congleton Library, or by calling them on 01260 375550.
