rivista internazionale di cultura



Conceived in 1977, Leconte is an open group defined by a shared vision—to change the way people look at cultural freedom through the saving power of writing. In the revolutionary spirit of the times, Leconte became a hub for experimentation, celebrating the importance of words and images in a friendly creative environment. Today, it remains a hangout for an eclectic roster of writers, filmakers, journalists, word dealers and ‘Renaissance people’ devoted to a truly crossover vision of writing. More akin to Verrocchio’s workshop than Warhol’s Factory, Leconte is also a kind of academy of words (a number of important writers, filmakers and artists were trained here) intended as an outlet for the release of collective works: magazines, movies, books, cultural events, readings, festivals.

Leconte is a rebel and secular cultural band with a political slant.

Based in Rome, Italy, Leconte maintains a policy of affordable access to his works through reasonable prices.
