Proêmes Reading Club

Paninari – February 2023

With its new Power Session, the Proêmes Reading Club offers us to deep dive into the infamous Paninari.

This vibrant and over-the-top Italian subculture from the 80’s that took the continent by storm, put Stone Island on the radars, influenced the most hardcore of the English Casuals and got a dedicated song from The Pet Shop Boys.

“Bruges-la-Morte” – May 2023

For its latest session, the Proêmes Reading Club proposed a lecture on “Bruges-la-Morte”, Belgium poet Georges Rodenbach's masterpiece.

We explored the themes of obsession, loss, and the power of memory. A thought-provoking exploration of the human psyche set against the backdrop of a hauntingly beautiful city.
