Sat April 16/16 p.m. - Villa Le Cercle - Viva Italia Program
Meeting with Filippo D'angelo, Giorgio Fontana & Alessandro Mari
Here are three young voices, three of the rising stars of Italian literature. Fully original voices. The first delivers, with The end of the other world, a provocative prose. The second, with Death of a Happy Man, won the famous Campiello Prize, placing him among the confirmed talents of the young generation. The third made himself famous by a remarkable first novel The Foolish Hope and is the translator into Italian of Patti Smith. Between them, they draw up a portrait of Italy by the romantic route and create a singular literary work to be discovered without delay.
