Screening followed by a conversation between Giorgio Pressburger and Katia Pizzi

The documentary L’orologio di Monaco (62’, Italy 2014), directed by Mauro Caputo, originates from the short story collection of the same name written by Giorgio Pressburger, who also lends his voice to the film. It is the story of a central European family whose ranks include the names of some of leading historical figures of the last two centuries (Marx, Heine, Mendelssohn, Husserl, etc.). In a study that interweaves past and present, the narrator relives the memories and human dramas that enabled him to understand “what it means to really belong to the human community of the living and the dead”.After the screening Giorgio Pressburger, in conversation with Katia Pizzi, will talk about his writing and his works including the collection I racconti triestini (Marsilio, 2015).  Giorgio Pressburger is an Italian writer whose works range from literature to cinema, radio, television, theatre and opera music. Born in 1937 in Budapest from Jewish parents of Slovakian origin, after the 1956 Soviet invasion of Hungary Pressburger settled in Italy with his twin brother Nicola. He is one of the most representative Italian cultural personalities at international level.Katia Pizzi is Senior Lecturer in Italian Studies at the University of London. She has published five books and several articles in the UK and internationally on Modern Italian literature and culture. In particular she is the author of Trieste: italianità, triestinità e male di frontiera (Gedit, 2007), an in-depth study on the authors and the most canonical literature related to the city of Trieste.
