Carlo Cassola (1917-1987) - Literature, Cinema and Engagement

Carlo Cassola was born a century ago but the year 2017 is also the 30th anniversary of his death. He is undoubtedly one of the great Italian writers of the 20th century and this is why we remember him by revisiting his work.

Event in English and Italian.
