On 9th April at 7pm (Italy Time) join our chat with Paolo Di Paolo!

Paolo Di Paolo is a famous Italian author, journalist and critic.

He started writing when he was very young and his curiosity led him to experiment every form of writing: he wrote novels, scripts for the theatre, essays, children books and much more.

During his career he won important awards, such as Premio Mondello, Superpremio Vittorini and Premio Viareggio, and he was finalist for the Premio Strega.

In his books, readers can find captivating stories, always focused on human feelings and built around a deep knowledge and a genuine passion for literature.

If you go through his novels, from Raccontami la notte in cui sono nato to Lontano dagli occhi, it will be clear how this young yet mature author is able to catch the spirit of his time.

And in his last work, Svegliarsi negli anni Venti. Il cambiamento, i sogni e le paure da un secolo all’altro, Di Paolo shows his confidence in bouncing from the last to the current century and back, creating a strong bond between them, talking with and about authors and artists who embodied their times, with all the uncertainty and eternal desires of humankind.
