RECEPTION AT STOCKHOLM CITY HALL
Monday 30 June
From any part of Stockholm that lies south of lake Mälaren, one building dominates the skyline, the City Hall. A massive square tower rises from one corner of the elegant building which is made of decorated brickwork. The City Hall is the masterwork of the Swedish architect Ragnar Östberg who began to work with it in 1911 and devoted the next 12 years of his life to complete the City Hall. Every room in the City Hall has its own character and originality. The Blue Hall, the largest room in the building, is a manifestation in brickwork, and it is here that the Nobel Prize banquet takes place every 10th of December.
The reception will be arranged by courtesy of the city of Stockholm and the County Council at Stockholm City Hall. The reception is held on Monday 30 June at 18.00. A buffet dinner will be served followed by a guided tour of the building.
Please note that there are a limited number of tickets to the Reception and they will be distributed first-come, first-serve. The event is open to all registered participants and accompanying persons, only if marked on the registration form.
For further information about the City Hall please visit their website.

Guided tour in Stockholm, in English, French and Italian (FREE)
Elisabeth Olin, fiction writer, translator and (sometimes) guide, will take you on a two-hour walk in the central parts of Stockholm. These are mainly the old Town which dates from the 13th century with the Royal Castle, the small but beautiful brick Cathedral, the Parliament and Governmental buildings. During this walk we will all the time be surrounded by waters of Stockholm, the main attraction of this Nordic city. The Swedish capital is situated on both the brackwater Baltic and lake Mälaren and covers a fairly vast area open to both inland and sea. I´ll give you some snapshots of Swedish medieval history and a quick story of our nation´s rise to the predominant Baltic power during the 17th century and as much knowledge of Swedish contemporary history as our time together allows, which also goes for our literary heritage.
10.00-12.00 or 14.00-16.00

Tour de Stockholm
Je suis Elisabeth Olin, écrivain, traductrice et, de temps en temps guide, et je vous emmène à une promenade de deux heures à Stockholm, ville médievale construite selon le plan urbain de Lübeck qui a très bien conservé son aspect ancien; á l´époque, Stockholm faisait partie de l´alliance Hanséatique. On se promène dans la partie centrale de Stockholm qui comprend la Vielle Ville avec le palais royal et le catédral ainsi que le Parlement et les bâtiments governementaux. La capitale suèdoise est une ville d´eau, située et sur la mer Baltique et sur le lac Mälaren, et surtout l´été la lumiére sur ces eaux est splendide. Je vous offrirai quelques vues rapides sur l´histoire médiévale de Stockholm, ainsi que de son ascendance comme un pouvoir baltique pendant la guerre de trente ans et son histoire contemporaine – bien sûr on parlera aussi de la litérature suédoise tant que possible.

Facciamo cerca due ore in piedi, sopratutto nella Città storica, vedendo il palazzo reale, la cattedrale e la parte borghese della città vecchia che aveva l´aspetto tedesco, ed anche le construzioni del parliamento e governimento; parliamo un po della storia di una cittá fondata nel medio del trecento su l´isololotto fortificato di Stockholmen tra mare e lago e allargata sopratutto durante la guerra di trent´anni nel seicento quando la Svezia è diventata il potere prevalente nel Mare Baltico.
