Focus

Themes, currents, characters and fortunes of Italian books, especially abroad. In the history of dealings between Italian publishers and the rest of the world, many moments, events and authors deserve our attention. They reflect the fortunes and difficulties of texts that have managed to force their way into other cultures, and explain the reasons for their success and, maybe, can become useful tools for the future.
This section highlights the job that publishing agencies have performed over the years furthering the cause of Italian books. We have called it Focus because because it is only by focussing properly on things that we can understand them better.

Ten stories, ten legacies

by Snežana Milinković A generation of ‘cannibals’: such was the accusation levied against a body of writers in the last decade of the twentieth century, among them not least the figure of Tiziano Scarpa. And indeed it was Scarpa, in the preface to Il bevetto del geco, who touched in passing upon the reasons why his generation of writers was judged in this way: “I’m not a historian, nor a journalist, and I have no intention...
