Leggiamo insieme! Club di lettura: ‘Cara pace’ by Lisa Ginzburg (Istituto Italiano di Cultura)

July 8 @ 18:00 - 20:00

Free

This year, on April 29, the Istituto Italiano di Cultura Amsterdam initiated a series of appointments to promote reading habits and the Italian language in our community, through the reading club Leggiamo insieme! (‘Let’s read together!’).

The series of six online reading and discussion meetings – which proposed books selected among the candidates for the Strega Award 2021 – will end with its last appointment, organised for July 8 from 18:00 to 20:00. Presented by Anastasia Manna, the sixth book that the club will analyse is Cara pace (Ponte alle Grazie), written by Lisa Ginzburg. The story develops on two parallel planes: the present is settled in Paris, while the memory lays in Rome. The relationships of the protagonist with her mother and sister are very complicated, and constitute the framework on which the novel rests, with the dysfunctionality of the family at its core.

The workshop will be conducted by teachers of Italian from the Italian Cultural Institute; participants are invited to read the book (in the language they prefer) before the meeting.

To participate, please register with the Italian Institute by emailing corsilingua.iicamsterdam@esteri.it, indicating your name and the evening you are interested in.

Membership to the club is open to all free of charge, and books will be available for purchase at the Institute.

For members of the Institute there is a 20% discount on the purchase of books for the evenings of the reading club.
