the first European festival on creativity


Stefano Benni

Stefano Benni is one of Italy’s most renowned authors. Wandering among the different genres—novel, poetry, science fiction, drama—and using a range of different languages, Benni has succeeded in elevating tragic-comic fiction from a structural and thematic element to a gesture of social criticism. His books, published by Feltrinelli, include: Bar Sport (1976); Bar Sport Duemila (1997); Blues in sedici (1998); Spiriti (2000); Saltatempo (2001); Achille piè veloce (2003); Margherita Dolcevita (2005); Misterioso – Viaggio nel silenzio di T. Monk, written with U. Petrin (2005); La grammatica di Dio (2007).
