Literature and novels are an ideal instrument to talk about history.

MAXXI and the Maria e Goffredo Bellonci Foundation present a series of meetings with the five finalists of the LXXIII edition of the Strega Prize, the prestigious Italian literary award that for more than seventy years has recounted our country by documenting its language, changes, and traditions.

A new program designed to give space to the best voices of contemporary narrative and start a collective reflection, through dialogue with other expressive languages, on the most urgent current events.

In the last meeting, Antonio Scurati, winner of the 2019 Strega Prize with M. Il figlio del secolo (Bompiani) meets with the historian Giordano Bruno Guerri to discuss how literature and the novel, in particular, can be an ideal instrument to talk about the history that made us what we are.
