Meeting on Giorgio Bassani’s ‘A Prospect of Ferrara’

Categories: Culture and creativity -Literature and Publishing
An opportunity to talk about Italian literature, history and culture.

The next meeting of the Italian Book Club, organized by the Dante Alighieri Society of British Columbia with the support of the Italian Cultural Institute of Toronto, will take place online on November 16.

We will talk about the novel ‘A Prospect of Ferrara’ by Giorgio Bassani, which earned the author the 1956 Strega Prize. The five stories share a kind of painful awareness and an unforgettable setting: Ferrara, a provincial town that here becomes the symbol of an entire nation, wrapped in the heavy dark drapery of Fascism.
