… Le colpe dei padri
by Italian writer Alessandro Perissinotto. This book was runner-up for ” Premio Strega 2013″ and I was very lucky to meet Alessandro when he came to Cork, last October.
The Premio Strega “Strega Prize” is the most prestigious Italian literary award. It has been awarded annually since 1947 for the best work of prose fiction by an Italian author.
The activities of the Bellonci circle and the institution of the prize were seen as marking a tentative return to ‘normality’ in Italian cultural life: a feature of the reconstruction which followed the years of Fascism, war, occupation and liberation.
