Lecture: “Carlo Emilio Gadda, the obsessive search for truth”


University College Cork will host, on the 12th of October, a reading of various texts by Carlo Emilio Gadda for the occasion of the 50th anniversary of his death entitled “Carlo Emilio Gadda, the obsessive search for truth”.

In attendance will be Attilio De Gasperis, teacher in schools and universities in Italy and all over the world, including, for over 20 years, director of various Italian Institutes of Culture in Cairo, New Delhi, Baghdad, Krakow, Lima, Tirana, Istanbul, San Paolo and Beirut.

The reading in Italian, organised by our Institute in conjuction with the Italian Department of UCC, is established not only with the objective of presenting the more salient aspects of Gadda’s work, but also of tracing the historical, philosophic and literacy panorama, Italian and European, through which will be realised the literary production.

Free admission.
