Presentation of the new novel Il Colibrì by Sandro Veronesi
The author will be in conversation with Paolo Nelli
In Italian with English simultaneous translation

Il Colibrì (the hummingbird) by Sandro Veronesi, is a novel that describes our present through the life experience of an imperfect man, Marco Carrera. The leading character tries stubbornly to stay still while his life spins uncontrollably. A powerful reading on the agonizing force of life.

This event is organised in partnership with La Nave di Teseo.

Sandro Veronesi, born in Florence in 1959, is an Italian novelist, essayist, and journalist. After earning a degree in architecture at the University of Florence, he opted for a writing career in his mid to late twenties. Veronesi published his first book at the age of 25, a collection of poetry (Il resto del cielo, 1984) that has remained his only venture into verse writing. Since then, he has written several novels (including Caos Calmo, winner of the Strega Prize 2006, later a film with Nanni Moretti), three books of essays, one theatrical piece, numerous introductions to novels and collections of essays, interviews, screenplay and television programmes.

Paolo Nelli teaches Italian language and culture at King’s College London. He published novels and collections of short stories, including Golden Boot (Medea’s Boots), a coming-of-age novel and Trattato di economia affettiva (Treatise on the Economy of Feeling), a novel about southern immigrants during the economic boom of the seventies in northern Italy. Nelli is one of the organisers of FILL, Festival of Italian Literature in London.
