On 9 May, the Italian Cultural Institute of Berlin in collaboration with the publishing houses Klaus Wagenbach and Einaudi, presents an interview with the author Marco Missiroli.
In his latest novel Fedeltà, which appeared in German version in 2021 (Treue, Wagenbach) Marco Missiroli investigates the psychology of couple relationships and reveals the desires, fears and escapes of his protagonists. The success of the book, published in over thirty countries, inspired the Netflix series of the same name currently in programme.
What does Marco Missiroli think of the relationship between fictional writing and film adaptation? What projects is he working on? What attracts him, or repels him, about Berlin and about German literature and culture in general? These are some of the questions for the author, guest at the Italian Cultural Institute in Berlin.
Marco Missiroli was born in Rimini and lives in Milan. He won the Premio Campiello Opera Prima with his debut novel, ‘Senza coda‘ (Fanucci 2005; Feltrinelli 2016). In 2015, he published for Feltrinelli the bestseller ‘Atti osceni in luogo privato‘ (Obszönes Verhalten an privaten Orten, Wagenbach 2017; Obscene acts in a private place). He published ‘Fedeltà’ (2019) for Einaudi, with which he won the Premio Strega Giovani 2019.
The meeting is moderated by the Director of the Maria Carolina Foi Institute for the series of literary interviews #Goethe à rebours: il viaggio in Germania 2022.
