Göteborg Book-fair - Friday, September 27th

Friday 27th, 10:00-10:45

Between 2010 and 2012 the Italian Cultural Institute in Stockholm published twelve books never translated into Swedish before. The project aimed at publishing classics, contemporary novels and poems, and essays.

Speaker: Cecilia Schwartz (Stockholm University) and Ulla Åkerström (University of Gothenburg). 


Friday 27th, 11:00-11:45

Presentation of "Storia delle Letterature Scandinave" (EN)

The Italian publishing house Iperborea recently released a history of Scandinavian literature, the first of its kind in Italy. Covering more than 1000 years of literary tradition, this book represents an impressive critical effort.

Speakers: Prof. Massimo Ciaravolo (University of Venice) and Pietro Biancardi (CEO of Iperborea).


Friday 27th, 13:00-13:45

Napoli Stories – 1 (SV)

The global success of Elena Ferrante has shed new light on the literary heritage of Naples. Long before Ferrante, Naples has been the setting for novels, essays, pamphlets and poems. Focusing on the female voices of the Neapolitan tradition, Professor Cecilia Schwartz (Stockholm University) and Vibeke Emond (translator) will talk about Anna Maria Ortese and her collection of short-stories “Il mare
non bagna Napoli”, which is recently published in Sweden with the title “Havet når inte Neapel”.

Speakers: Cecilia Schwartz (Stockholm University) and Vibeke Emond (translator).


Friday 27th, 14:00-14:45

Napoli Stories – 2 (EN)

Naples has become a new literary epicentre in modern Italian literature and cinema. Thanks to its striking contrasts and millenary history, the city has become the setting of a “new wave” of writers and film-makers.

Alessio Forgione presents "Napoli mon amour" (NN Editore) and talks about his relationship with the city where he was born and that he left to become a Londoner.

Speaker: Alessio Forgione and Serena Daniele (NN Editore). 


Friday 27th, 15:00-15:45

Napoli Stories – 3 (EN)

Naples and Stockholm have become in recent years the stage of many crime novels.

Maurizio de Giovanni (IT) and Håkan Östlundh (SV) will describe how they approach the setting. Commissario Lojacono’s investigation in the dark alleys of Naples and "The Winter of the Prophet"'s story of espionage and corruption in the neat street of Stockholm may look different, but they share a common matrix.

Speakers: Maurizio de Giovanni and Håkan Östlundh.


Friday 27th, 16:00-16:45

Termini – Cornerstone of Modern Rome (SV)

The Termini Station in Rome is eponymous of the modern Rome that raised during the first half of the Twentieth Century, although it incorporates the ancient walls of the city from the 4th century BC. Arthur Weststeijn and Frederick Whitling have investigated the incredible story of this public project, which still today represents one of the most controversial works in Italy’s contemporary history.

Speaker: Frederick Whitling (Swedish Institute in Rome and Athens).
