Edoardo Albinati

War to retoric

The 2016 Strega Prize writer reviews the ways and places in which our public and private speeches become vague or threatening, demanding at all costs to move or persuade or intimidate others, and avoiding representing things as they are.

Edoardo Albinati, writer, was born in Rome in 1956. For more than twenty years he has been a teacher at the Rebibbia prison, an experience described in Maggio selvaggio (Mondadori, 1999). He has written screenplays for Matteo Garrone and Marco Bellocchio. He took part in a mission to Afghanistan led by the UN High Commission for Refugees recounted in Il ritorno (Mondadori, 2002). His books include Il polacco lavatore di vetri (Longanesi, 1989), 19 (Mondadori, 2000), Svenimenti (Einaudi, Premio Viareggio 2004), Tuttalpiù muoio (with Filippo Timi, Fandango, 2006), Vita e morte di un ingegnere (Mondadori, 2012) and La scuola cattolica, published by Rizzoli, which received the Strega Prize in 2016. In September his latest book Velo pietoso. Guerra alla retorica will be published by Rizzoli, and the movie based on his book La scuola cattolica will be presented at the Venice Film Festival.
